Baldwin, Basinger plan ‘Getaway’

Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger are reteaming to headline Largo Entertainment’s “The Getaway,” a remake of the 1972 Sam Peckinpah action thriller that starred Steve McQueen and Ali MacGraw.

Baldwin and Basinger starred together in Hollywood Pictures’ 1991 romantic comedy “The Marrying Man,” a production on which the two actors generated highly publicized off-screen drama of their own in feuding with studio exex and some of the filmmakers.

“The Getaway” is slated to begin lensing in late March, based on Walter Hill’s adaptation of Jim Thompson’s novel. Hill also wrote the ’72 version.

David Foster, who co-produced Peckinpah’s film with Mitchell Brower, is producing with Lawrence Turman and John Alan Simon.

The contemporary action thriller is about a master thief (Baldwin) who will go to any lengths to get out of the state penitentiary. His wife (Basinger) will do anything to help spring him, and together they set off on a twisted trail of double-crosses and deceptions.

According to a Largo source, distribution arrangements for “Getaway” remain to be finalized.

It is understood, however, that the release will not fall under Largo’s worldwide distribution deal with 20th Century Fox and Universal Pictures because of some pre-existing obligations that arose out of rights to the original picture by Warner Bros.

One source suggested Fox or U will be the domestic distributor and WB may have some involvement in the picture’s foreign rights.
