Excess Hollywood: Summit picks up 'Tempest' rights

  • Thomas Haden Church is at the center of some killer casting news as he joins Matthew McConaughey and Emile Hirsch in Killer Joe, a black comedy about a detective/hit man. [Variety]
  • Twilight’s Summit Entertainment is hoping lightening strikes twice when it comes to YA novels: The studio has nabbed the rights to Julie Cross’ yet-to-be-published trilogy, Tempest, which follows a teen who jumps back in time two years before his girlfriend is murdered. [The Wrap]
  • Juma Entertainment, the folks behind The Singing Bee, have joined with IMG Media for a Cash Cab-esque game show, in which five or six strangers must answer trivia questions for prizes while riding in an elevator. Is one of the questions: Which one of you is the devil? (Answer: None of them; the trees did it.) [Variety]
