Summit to Develop ‘Push’ for a New TV Series

Summit Entertainment, a worldwide theatrical motion picture development, financing, production and distribution studio, and leading independent studio E1 Entertainment announced today that they plan to jointly develop and produce a television series based on Summit's 2009 feature film Push. The project marks a natural evolution for Summit of not only producing feature films but also developing and producing material for the global television marketplace. The television series will be an extension of the film, a science fiction thriller, centered on people with paranormal powers who band together to take down a corrupt government agency. The Push television series furthers the relationship established in 2007 between Summit and E1, with E1 licensing exclusive distribution rights to Summit produced feature films in the UK and Canada.

Screenwriter David Hayter, who penned the blockbuster films Watchmen, The Scorpion King, X2 and X-Men, will script the series pilot. E1 and Dark Hero Studios, co-owned by Hayter and producing partner Benedict Carver, will jointly produce the series based on the screenplay created by David Bourla for Summit Entertainment. Hayter and Carver will be executive producers, along with E1's Noreen Halpern and John Morayniss. Summit, E1 and Dark Hero are currently in discussion with US broadcasters about the series. Hayter and Dark Hero Studios are repped by UTA.

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: Jason Takes the Box Office as ‘Friday the 13th’ Slashes Its Way to $42.2 Million

Jason took the box office this weekend, with his Friday the 13th earning an estimated $42.2 million dollars. That is the biggest weekend take of the year thus far, and it beats the cumulative earnings of any previous Friday the 13th ever released with the exception of Freddy vs. Jason. This is certainly good news for both producers Platinum Dunes and longtime fans, as they are pretty much guaranteed a sequel now that their favorite slasher has proven his ability to hack up the bank.

In the second and third place spots were two holdovers from previous weeks. The romantic comedy He's Just Not That Into You dropped down one space to number two with another $19.6 million to its name. In just two weeks, this Valentine-themed charmer has earned an estimated $55 million. Coming in at third is the little Fox action film that has surprised many. Taken earned another $19.2 million, bringing its earnings up to $77.9 million. It should reach $100 million in the states before it completely drops off the top ten. Its current worldwide grosses stands at $146.9 million. That's a pretty decent take for a film that didn't really get any promotional push at all.

BOX OFFICE BEAT DOWN: ‘He's Just Not That Into You’ Gets Into $27.4 Million for First Place

This weekend belonged to the rom-com. Warner Brother's latest star-fueled charmer He's Just Not That Into You took in an estimated $27.4 million over the last three days to become the top grossing film at the box office. Last weekend's number one film Taken, an action drama starring Liam Neeson, slid into the number two spot with another $20.3 million to its name. Thus far, this little film has earned a cumulative total of $53 million with hardly any promotional push.

Three other new films opened this weekend to varying results. The Henry Selick stop-motion adventure Coraline came in at number three with $16.3 million. Will this be enough to save Laika House, the animation production company responsible for the film? Only time will tell. In at number four was Steve Martin's franchise sequel The Pink Panther 2, which brought in $12 million. This was way down from the original's opening. In 2006 The Pink Panther brought in $20 million to become the number one film on its February opening weekend.
