The Gotham Group has promoted Luke Sandler to manager in its literary division.
Sandler, who has worked for Spyglass Entertainment and Warner Independent Pictures, will rep film and TV writers and directors, as well as sell film rights to Gotham’s voluminous library of books and graphic novels. At Gotham, Sandler has acquired the literary comedy Unexpectedly Milo, as well as Red Moon, an action series proposal currently being auctioned.
“Luke’s astute eye for emerging talent and his deft sales instincts make him an invaluable addition to our literary division,” said Gotham CEO Ellen Goldsmith-Vein.
The Gotham Group is currently producing the Lionsgate thriller Abduction, which hits theaters in September. Also in development are Wake, a book adaptation at Paramount/MTV Films to star Miley Cyrus; the 3D CGI adventure Quantum Quest; an adaptation of the graphic novel Ghostopolis at Disney with Hugh Jackman attached to star; and The Family Hitchcock, an adaptation of a forthcoming book project set up at New Regency.
