“Dracula Untold” helmer to tackle Nobel family drama

PanARMENIAN.Net - Cross Creek has tapped “Dracula Untold” director Gary Shore to helm historical drama “The Great Game” movie about the Nobel family, Variety reports.

Shore is directing from an original screenplay by two-time Blacklist honoree Bryan McMullin about young Emanuel Nobel’s longing for excitement in the shadow of a family of genius inventors and his feverish romance with a mysterious ballerina. The story is set during the Baku oil rush at the turn of the century as oil barons lawlessly engage in games of deceit, espionage, and murder to build oil empires.

Emanuel Nobel was the father on Alfred Nobel, inventor of dynamite and the creator of the Nobel Prize.

Cross Creek’s Brian Oliver and Jason Seagraves are producing as well as Maurice Fadida, who brought the project to Cross Creek Pictures. The producers are collaborating with the Nobel family.

Shore made his feature film debut with “Dracula Untold,” which grossed more than $200 million at the worldwide box office. He’s also directed commercials for Gatorade, Adidas, EDF, UGG, Guinness, Machine Zone, Samsung and collaborated with TBWA/Chiat/Day Los Angeles, M&C Saatchi, 180 Amsterdam, Creature London, Young Euro RSCG Dublin and Leo Burnett India.

Cross Creek’s slate includes “Hacksaw Ridge,” “Everest” and “Black Mass.”
