Amazon Studios has acquired the U.S. rights to Dan Fogelman’s upcoming feature “Life, Itself” for a whopping $10 million, an individual with knowledge of the project told TheWrap.
The completed film is directed and written by the “This Is Us” creator, and stars Oscar Isaac, Olivia Wilde, Antonio Banderas, Annette Bening and Olivia Cooke.
The film weaves together the stories of multiple characters who interact with one another stretching from New York to the Spanish countryside.
“Life, Itself” was produced by Temple Hill’s Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey as well as FilmNation Entertainment’s Aaron Ryder and Fogelman.
Fogelman’s most recent credits include serving as the writer and creator of NBC’s “This Is Us,” as well as being a producer on “Me and Earl and the Dying Girl,” in which Cooke starred as well.
His screenplay credits also include “Crazy, Stupid, Love,” “Last Vegas” and “Tangled.”
He previously directed the Al Pacino-Annette Bening dramedy “Danny Collins.”
Fogelman is represented by WME and Management 360. Representatives for Fogelman have not yet responded to TheWrap’s request for comment.
