‘Food Chain’ pic deal done

Force Ten Prods. and New York-based Heatwave Prods. have acquired movie rights to the cannibal comedy novel “The Food Chain,” which is currently winning accolades from book critics.

Written by Geoff Nicholson, “The Food Chain” is about a froufrou L.A. restaurateur who joins a prestigious, secretive London eating club, only to discover that humans are the main course.

Excerpts of the nutritional farce hit the newsstands in November’s Buzz Magazine.

Force Ten and Heatwave are 50/50 partners on “The Food Chain.” The movie rights to the book were optioned while the novel was stillin galley form. Sources indicated that preliminary inquiries for younger leading men have started, but the identities of potential candidates are being kept confidential until a commitment is made.

Headed by president John Roach and veepee David Tischman, Force Ten previously delivered such pix as Sylvester Stallone’s “Paradise Alley,” director Andrew Lane’s “Jake Speed” and the telepic “In Broad Daylight.”

Beyond “The Food Chain,” Force Ten is currently partnered with Wendy Finerman at Columbia Pictures on director Carlo Carlei’s “Max Lakeman and the Beautiful Stranger.” Heatwave is headed by Tracy Carns and Hermann Lademann.
