John Ridley will soon be looking for a Needle in a Timestack for Miramax.
The Oscar-winner will write and direct an adaption of Robert Silverberg's short story, which follows a devoted husband who must save his marriage after it was destroyed by a time traveling writer.
Vince Gerardis and Matt Kennedy will executive produce the project. Zanne Devine, head of film & TV, and David Thwaites, svp, film, will oversee the project for the studio.
Needle in a Timestack is joining Miramax's upcoming production schedule that includes the Margot Robbie-starring Tonya Harding movie I, Tonya, and the Tupac-Biggie crime thriller LAbyrinth.
Ridley is gearing up for the debut of his Showtime series Guerilla and the feature documentary about the L.A. Riots, Let it Fall, which will hit theaters this month. His ABC-based anthology series, America Crime, is currently in its third season.
He is repped by Brillstein and Rohner Walerstein.
