Michael Stipe's Single Cell Pictures sweet on Slo-Mo
Variety reports that out rocker Michael Stipe's and his producer partner Sandy Stern's Single Cell Pictures have optioned Slo-Mo, written by former Single Cell intern John Krokidas. The film centers around a writer's block-plagued author who falls into an alternate reality that operates on a slower clock, which makes it impossible for him to communicate with others. "I was not predisposed to like this, because to be honest, John was the world's worst intern," Stern told Variety. "But this was the most original and inventive concept we read since Charlie Kaufman's Being John Malkovich, which we produced."
