Scripter Fasano signs at Morris

John Fasano, who’s scripting Cinergi’s “Die Hard 3,” has signed with the William Morris Agency, leaving his agency of the last three years, Intl. Creative Management.

Fasano, who has directed several low-budget films and co-wrote “Another 48 HRS,” will be repped by a number of the agency’s kingpins — Jim Crabbe, Fred Westheimer, David Phillips and Jeff Field — spearheaded by the agency’s worldwide motion picture head, Arnold Rifkin.

According to agency sources, Rifkin, who represents “Die Hard 3” star Bruce Willis, was instrumental in bringing Fasano on board.

In addition to finishing his screenwriting duties on “Die Hard 3,” Fasano and wife Cindy Cirile are attached as producers on “My Pet Viking,” a spec script written by another Morris client, James Cirile (Cindy’s brother), that is on the open market. The script is a fantasy-comedy about a young boy who finds a time-traveling Viking washed up on a Florida beach.

“Esmeralda,” another project written by Fasano, is the story of Quasimodo and Esmeralda — the two main characters from the classic “The Hunchback of Notre Dame.” To be produced by Fasano and Craig Baumgarten, the project is being packaged by the Morris office.

In addition, Fasano has been set to write and direct “Battletech”– based on the popular board game — for New Line. The film, budgeted at about $ 20 million , likely will go before the cameras early next year.
