Ang Lee directs Woodstock

For Phil and Debbie Winslow, moving their family from Kansas to the O.C. is a big deal. For their enormous Great Dane “Marmaduke,” however, the move means a whole new way of life. It’s chaos at home and awkward at work as the Winslows struggle to control their angsty teenage canine.

Oscar-winning director Ang Lee has directed nearly everything – the Hulk, gay cowboys, sexual spies, kung fu experts, romantic sisters – now he’s tackling the greatest concert of all-time – Woodstock!

Lee will direct the film with James Schamus penning  the screenplay for a film based on Elliot Tiber’s memoir “Taking Woodstock: A True Story of a Riot, Concert, and a Life.”

The story instead focuses on a motel owner who inadvertently sets in motion what would eventually become one of the most unforgettable concerts in history.

Production is expected to begin before year’s end with a $5 to $10 million budget.

EXTRAs; Schamus has teamed with Lee on 10 films, including “Brokeback Mountain,” “Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon” and, most recently, “Lust, Caution.”
