Red Granite Developing Heinlein's "Hoag"

Los Angeles based Red Granite Pictures will finance and co-produce director Alex Proyas’ "The Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag” with Mythology Entertainment, Phoenix Pictures and Mystery Clock Cinema.

The film will shoot in Australia where Proyas is a resident and operates his production company, Mystery Clock Cinema.

Producers are eyeing a fall 2012 start :

"...'Hoag' is struck one evening with the realization that he has no memory of what he does during the day. Distraught over his predicament, and particularly concerned that he might be engaged in some nefarious activities, he contacts a husband and wife detective agency and asks them to surreptitiously follow him.

"The truth takes a dark and ultimately earth-shattering turn as their investigation leads to a series of frightening revelations, beginning with a group of shadowy figures who gravely warn of dire consequences unless the pair immediately cease their inquiry into the nature of Hoag's identity..."

Proyas adapted the screenplay from a 1942 novella by Hugo award-winning science fiction author Robert A. Heinlein.
