Brewster's Millions Returning to the Big Screen

August 17, 2009

Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan have been hired to write Brewster's Millions, the latest take on the George Barr McCutcheon novel set up at Warner Bros.

The 1902 novel, which became a play in 1906, was adapted into a 1945 film starring Dennis O'Keefe, directed by Allan Dwan, and into the 1985 comedy starring Richard Pryor and John Candy and directed by Walter Hill.

The story centers on a man who inherits $1 million from a rich grandfather. When a rich uncle who hated the grandfather also passes away, the will leaves the young man $7 million -- but under the condition he spends the grandfather's million within a year and not end up with any assets from the spending spree.
