In a story from The Hollywood Reporter Gus van Sant will be making Restless for Columbia. The film will be based on a script by Jason Lew.
Brian Grazer, Ron Howard and Bryce Howard are producing this project for Imagine Entertainment. The film is called a "contemporary and distinctive take on young love."
Apparently, the screenwriter and Bryce Howard went to New York University together. Lew initially wrote the story as a play. Howard looked at the initial story and told Lew he should turn it into a screenplay.
Howard eventually brought it to her father Ron and he was taken with the story. He took it to Imagine and the executives there eventually showed the script to Van Sant.
