Appian Way, Endeavor Content and Makeready have snapped up the remake rights to Thomas Vinterberg’s Best International Film Oscar winner “Another Round”.
The project is being developed as a potential star vehicle for Appian Way co-founder Leonardo DiCaprio who will produce alongside Jennifer Davisson, Negin Salmasi and Brad Weston.
“Another Round” follows four teacher pals in midlife crisis who decide to experiment with keeping their blood alcohol levels continuously raised as a way to make life more interesting.
Things progressively get out of hand. Unlike most projects about drinking, alcohol is not the evil element – the issues come from the choices the characters make.
A writer will be sought quickly and Vinterberg will be executive producer. Appian Way beat out several others for the gig, including Studio Canal and Jake Gyllenhaal’s Nine Stories.
