Screenwriter Splits with Code Entertainment, Lasker over Douglass Script

Screenwriter Kerry Gleason retains all rights to the script, NORTH STAR: THE LIFE OF FREDERICK DOUGLASS, and has revoked his option agreement with Beverly Hills production company Code Entertainment and independent producer Michael Lasker.

In a statement released to the media, Gleason explained: "It is painful to go back to square one with this script. My decision came down to a lack of respect -- lack of respect for me, lack of respect for the original script and lack of respect for the real Frederick Douglass."

The Douglass script is a past winner of the Buffalo-Niagara Film Festival's Best Screenplay award, and is now available for option.
