National Treasure Director To Tackle Romantic Comedy

Director toning down the action and adventure to direct romantic comedy.

Jon Turteltaub, director of ‘The Sorcerer’s Apprentice’ and the ‘National Treasure’ movies is in talks to direct and produce ‘Unreasonable Doubt’ according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, a romantic comedy, centers around two jurors who fall in love during a court case. The screenplay was written by Marc Klein, who previously wrote the screenplays for ‘A Good Year’ and ‘Serendipity.’

Klein is also writing an adaptation of the Tony-winning musical ‘In the Heights,’ as well as co-writing ‘TMI’ with Kirsten Smith (’10 Things I Hate About You’). ‘TMI’ is a romantic comedy about the downside of too much honesty in a romantic relationship. That movie is being executively produced by Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris.
