Linson Making 4 At WB

The romantic comedy “Singles,” a contempo look at the solo scene, is one of four projects slated at Warner Bros. for producer Art Linson, who has set up shop there under an exclusive three-year agreement.

“Singles,” set to begin lensing in Seattle in March, reunites Linson with writer-director Cameron Crowe (“Say Anything”), with whom he teamed on “Fast Times At Ridgemont High.”

Pic will star Bridget Fonda and Campbell Scott, and will be directed by Crowe and exec produced by Linson. Also slated:

* “The Hawk,” written by Hampton Fancher (“Blade Runner,” “The Mighty Quinn”). It’s described as a thriller revolving around ecological issues;

* “This Boy’s Life,” to be adapted from the awardwinning auto-biography by Tobias Wolff, which recounts Wolff’s escapades growing up in the ’50s, as he and his mother journey cross-country to seek a new life after her divorce. Robert Getchell (“Bound For Glory”) is the likely scripter;

* “Devil’s Island,” written by Lem Dobbs (scripter of the recently completed “Kafka,” directed by Steven Soderbergh), described as a modern-day adventure in the tradition of WB’s “The Treasure Of The Sierra Madre.” Property is expected to start sometime this year.

Linson, whose credits include “The Untouchables,” “Melvin And Howard,” “Casualties Of War” and “Scrooged,” recently crossed over to the WB lot after six years at Paramount.

Linson has moved his h.q. to the Warners lot, where Jack Lechner is west coast development v.p. He will maintain his New York office at the Tribeca Film Center, where Jill Kearney is development v.p.
