The article reports that the director of the motion picture "Taking Lives" director D.J. Caruso has teamed with producer Ken Aguado to form film and TV production shingle Tall Pine Productions. Caruso and Aguado met a decade ago, when Aguado was production president at the Universal Pictures-based Badham/Cohen Group. Shingle's primary focus is finding projects for Caruso to direct, although it also will develop titles for Tall Pines to produce. Caruso said that he had teamed with Aguado after finding it difficult to uncover suitable projects. Most of the scripts he liked were too dark for the studios, while he found himself uninspired by studio assignments.
