It looks like Paramount Classics is still feverishly working to pick up the best titles to help the studio re-establish themselves for 2006.

Year of the Dog gets Paramount

According to Variety, Paramount Classics John Lesher has hired scribe Mike White to direct his first feature film, Year of the Dog. Jack Black, White's producing partner, is expected to be involved. Since White's producing partner is Jack Black we can only expect that he will too be involved.

Mike White was behind the screenplays for The Good Girl and The School of Rock; which also starred Jack Black.

This move by Lesher is one of many to aggressively rebrand Paramount Classics as a picture house that support all genres and filmmakers. Lesher also says that Paramount Classics will also get an entirely new name shortly. Though Lesher doesn't give any hints on what they new name will be, don't expect 'Paramount' to be anywhere in the title.

Paramount Classics also recently picked up There Will be Blood starring Daniel Day-Lewis and produced by Scott Rudin.

Director Paul Anderson wrote the script for Blood based off of Sinclair's book Oil!. The novel exposed of the seamy side of the drilling business in Southern California when it became the equivalent of the gold rush. Read more on Blood here.

Stay tuned for updates.
