by | April 8, 2005 | Comments

Fresh off the modest success that was "Coach Carter," director Thomas Carter (no relation) has been tapped by WB to direct "Freedom House." According to Variety, the story focuses on "the story of Freedom House Enterprises, an organization that trained residents of Pittsburgh’s poorest neighborhood to become the first modern-day paramedics." First-timer Stephen David wrote the screenplay after successfully pitching the idea; "Barbershop" screenwriter Don D. Scott contributed a rewrite on the project. This will be Thomas Carter’s fifth time behind the camera on a feature film; his previous movies include "Swing Kids," "Metro," "Save the Last Dance," and the aforementioned "Coach Carter."
