Errol Morris On For Holland, Michigan
Documentary legend makes a feature

Errol Morris's name tends to be met with a hush of reverence in documentary-making circles, but he's no newcomer to the feature-making either. He's attached himself to another, Holland, Michigan, his first since 1991's Lou Diamond Phillips crime procedural The Dark Wind.

An Oscar-winner with The Fog Of War and a law-changer with The Thin Blue Line, Morris is turning his attention to a movie that Deadline calls "a suburban thriller laced with black humor", presumably set on the eastern banks of Lake Michigan.

Holland, Michigan is written by Harvard grad and newbie screenwriter Andrew Sodroski, and will be produced by Le Grisbi’s John Lesher and Adam Kassan.

When Empire met Morris for Tabloid last year, he talked about making "a dramatic feature about the first man to be cryogenically frozen", so his documentary work may be on the backburner for the foreseeable future. That sci-fi-sounding project goes by the title Freezing People Is Easy and has Christopher Walken, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson attached.

Le Grisbi also has Brad Pitt tank drama Fury in the pipeline. Spring 2014 is the mooted start date for Holland, Michigan.
