Los Angeles, Jul 1 (PTI) Filmmaker Niki Caro is set to direct the upcoming feature "Beautiful Ruins" for Amblin Partners.
Caro most recently helmed Disney's live-action remake of "Mulan", which will hit the theatres in August this year. Her filmmography also includes titles such as "Whale Rider", "Anne with an E" and "North Country".
"Beautiful Ruins" is an adaptation of New York Times bestseller, written by Jess Walter.
Mark Hammer and Chiara Atik have penned the script from an earlier draft by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, reported Variety.
Set in an Italian seaside village in 1962, the story is about a charming young man who runs a hotel with no guests, until one day an American starlet, fresh from the set of "Cleopatra" appears and captures his heart.
Five decades later in Hollywood, a jaded assistant to a once-powerhouse producer gets caught up in the magic of the Italian's story, and takes it upon herself to find a happy ending.
The project will be produced by Neal Street Productions' Pippa Harris, Sam Mendes and Julie Pastor, with Nicolas Brown as executive producer. PTI RB 07011108 NNNNefore anyone comes to play that they will have a negative test."
The WTT's initial health protocols were released Tuesday. That initial plan said people testing positive once competition has started would be removed from the league, quarantined and compensated only for matches already completed.
"I just thought about it, and I was like: I'm a player, I got to Greenbrier and I'm there for eight days and, God forbid, someone gets sick and tests positive. Is it really the player's fault? Should they only get paid for eight days?" Silva told the AP.
"And I just said, 'No, I think that's silly. They should just get paid whatever they were going to get paid for the regular season.'" The same full-pay policy applies to players who get injured during WTT.
There will be two daily temperature checks for all spectators; no ball kids; a chair umpire aided by electronic line calling instead of line judges; and no high-fives or handshakes between opponents.
Rosters include Grand Slam title winners Kim Clijsters, Sloane Stephens, Sofia Kenin and the Bryan brothers.
Instead of playing matches around the country this year, the WTT is putting everyone in one place because of the coronavirus pandemic. (AP)
