Kouf/Bigelow Expands Slate

Disney-based Kouf/Bigelow Prods., headed by partners Jim Kouf and Lynn Bigelow and director of development Kristine Schwarz, is expanding its development program with projects inside and outside the Burbank lot.

On tap are a thriller for Disney’s Hollywood Pictures, a dark comedy for Propaganda Films and a sibling rivalry comedy at MGM/Pathe.

Kouf and Bigelow also will produce Akiva Goldsman’s original screenplay “Indian Summer,” a murder mystery recently sold to Morgan Creek Prods, for nearly $500,000.

Kouf and Bigelow are teamed with producer Peter Rosten on a thriller for Hollywood titled “Paper Bullets,” scripted by Kouf, who wrote and produced Touchstone’s 1987 action comedy “Stakeout” and penned and directed Touchstone’s 1989 comedy caper “Disorganized Crime.”

In development at Touchstone is Koufs script “White Train,” an actioner.

Independent of the partners’ two-year, first-look deal at Disney is “California,” a project set up at Propaganda, written by Tim Metcalfe and marking the feature directorial bow of Dominic Sena (who won a Grammy for directing Janet Jackson’s “Rhythm Nation” vid). Kouf/Bigelow will produce; Schwarz will co-produce.

On tap at MGM/Pathe is “Thicker Than Water,” a comedy about two brothers in Las Vegas penned by brothers Tony and Joe Gayton. Kouf/Bigelow will produce with Halperin/Meltzer.
