Fox on "The Road to Perdition"

May 22, 2001 | 12:33pm EDT

DreamWorks Pictures has agreed to sell half of its stake in The Road to Perdition to Twentieth Century Fox. The film is understood to have evolved for two primary reasons: the budget brought by the talent was too high and the opportunity to release the DreamWorks principal Steven Spielberg from a film commitment to Fox, Reuters reports. The DreamWorks-originated gangster picture will be hemmed by Sam Mendes of American Beauty and star Tom Hanks, Paul Newman and Jude Law. The film is tentatively set for a spring 2002 release.
