DESCRIPTION:
(from Amblin Television's press release, September 2020) Amblin Television and HBO Max today announced that they have entered into a deal to develop a show inspired by the acclaimed Akira Kurosawa film Rashomon, with Oscar(R) nominees Billy Ray (Captain Phillips, The Hunger Games, The Comey Rule) and Virgil Williams (Mudbound, A Journal for Jordan) writing. Amblin Partners' Co-Presidents of Television Darryl Frank and Justin Falvey (The Americans, Haunting of Hill House) will executive produce, along with Mark Canton (Power, 300) of Atmosphere Entertainment, Leigh Ann Burton of Opus7 Entertainment, and David Hopwood (Den of Thieves, Immortals). Todd Cohen, SVP Television Development, will oversee the day-to-day development of the project for Amblin, with Frank and Falvey. In 2018, Amblin announced that they had secured the blessing of the Kurosawa family to create a new series inspired by the iconic 1950 film, after Burton and Canton approached them with the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. It was Burton who successfully navigated the complex negotiation, to close the deal. The series will not be an adaptation but will retain the key plot device of the groundbreaking Kurosawa film - a drama centering around a grisly sexual assault and murder, and the unraveling mystery seen through multiple characters' competing narratives - to explore the themes of truth and subjective point of view, in a modern setting. Each episode will present the perceived truth of an individual character - putting each, in turn, at the center of the story and telling the events surrounding the murder from their unique, self-serving point of view.
