According to The Hollywood Reporter, Ehud Bleiberg has signed on Paul Schrader to direct Adam Resurrected, the first film for Bleiberg's new production and sales company that was announced last month.

The film, based on a novel by Yoram Kaniuk, was one of the titles Bleiberg took with him when he split from Dream Entertainment, the company he co-founded with Yitzhak Ginsberg.

"I have long admired Paul's work and am thrilled that he has agreed to direct this film," Bleiberg said. "We have a complex script that is compassionate, tragic and inspiring at the same time, and we are pleased that Paul will bring his immense artistic abilities to our film."
