Forman exits WB pic

After being handpicked by Warner Bros. to helm the film adaptation of Michael Crichton’s still unpublished thriller “Disclosure” (Daily Variety, Oct. 6), Milos Forman abruptly parted ways with Warner Bros. late Thursday, the studio announced.

Citing “creative differences,” a WB release quoting worldwide prexy Bruce Berman went on to explain that “Milos just had a completely different direction for the screenplay,” but that the parting was “a mutual decision.”

Crichton, whose reported $ 3.5 million deal granted him more hands-on control than any other writer, will produce and write the screenplay for “Disclosure.”

“Disclosure” deals with an accusation of sexual harassment among colleagues who are also ex-lovers. The book is timed to hit the stands in conjunction with the movie’s release.
