Seth Rogen came on board last month to portray Cronkite. David Gordon Green is directing the drama from Ben Jacoby’s script. Former Warner Bros. production president Greg Silverman is producing through his Stampede Ventures, along with Adam Kolbrenner of Madhouse Entertainment.

Last year, Damien Chazelle won Best Director for “La La Land,” while “Moonlight” shocked us all to win Best Picture. The year before that, Alejandro G. Inarritu took home the Oscar for directing “The Revenant,” while “Spotlight” claimed the big award. 2015 was the only year in the past five to marry the two Oscars together, with Inarritu winning both Director and Picture for “Birdman.” In 2014, Alfonso Cuaron won for directing “Gravity” while “12 Years a Slave” was the best film of the year.

The PGA Awards has an enviable track record at presaging the eventual Best Picture winner at the Academy Awards. The guild and the academy have agreed on 19 of the most recent 28 Best Picture champs.
