Dustin Hoffman to take director’s chair for Turow’s Personal Injuries.

It seems Dustin Hoffman is planning on directing, and co-writing, a film based on Scott Turow’s Personal Injuries.

Hoffman, a two time winner of the Best Actor Oscar, did attempt to direct Straight Time almost 30 years ago, but ended up giving up the director’s seat as he felt he was doing a poor job.

Hoffman is currently working on the script, with hopes of releasing the film in June of 2008.

Robbie Feaver (pronounced “favor”) is a successful personal injury lawyer with a burgeoning practice, a way with the ladies, and a beautiful wife (whom he loves) dying of an irreversible illness. He also has a secret bank account where he occasionally deposits funds that make their way into the pockets of the judges who decide Robbie’s cases. Robbie is apprehended, and, in exchange for leniency, agrees to “wear a wire” as he continues to try to fix decisions. The FBI agent assigned to supervise him goes by the alias of Evon Miller. She is lonely, uncomfortable in her skin, and impervious to Robbie’s charms. And she carries secrets of her own.
