Directing duo are 'Sensational'
Glatzer, Westmoreland sign TV deal
By Michael Fleming

Richard Glatzer and Wash Westmoreland (“Quinceanera”) have made a deal with HBO Films to write and direct “Sensational,” a drama that chronicles a scandalous affair Errol Flynn had with a 15-year-old girl. Glatzer and Westmoreland have also made a deal to turn “Quinceanera” into a TV series for the ABC Family Channel. They will direct, write and produce a series inspired by the film, a story of coming of age and culture clash in L.A.'s Echo Park.

“Sensational” tells the story of Flynn's dalliance with Beverly Aadland, a girl who was being pushed into a movie career by her mother, a wannabe actress whose aspirations were cut short after an accident. After Flynn collapsed and died at a party, the affair became a tabloid staple, and the girl's mother found herself on trial for child abuse.

Elysa Koplovitz is producing “Sensational.”

Look for Delvin Irwin in a small role in the film!
