"Zodiac" writer-producer James Vanderbilt is hot. He wrote "The Amazing Spider-Man" (July 3). He is adapting Brit mini-series "Red Riding" for producers Steven Zaillian and Ridley Scott, and shares screenwriting credit on upcoming "Total Recall" and "RoboCop" remakes. This week, his "White House Down" screenplay was picked up by Sony.

Vanderbilt (whose grandfather was Gloria Vanderbilt's first cousin) will produce with his Mythology Entertainment partners, screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis ("Shutter Island") and producer Bradley Fischer ("Black Swan"). Few details are known, but the story involves a para-military takeover of the titular 1600 Pennsylvania property.

Among Mythology's other projects are HBO's "The Lobotomist" with Leonardo DiCaprio's Appian Way and a Suge Knight Showtime doc with director Antoine Fuqua, as well as two potential franchises: John Bellairs' excellent young adult series ("The House With A Clock In Its Walls") and Richard Morgan's novel "Altered Carbon" (adapted by Kalogridis and "Fringe"'s David Goodman).

Go Into The Story conducted a 2011 interview with Vanderbilt here.
