Singer’s ‘Secret Life’ near delivery to Fox

Randi Mayem Singer, screenwriter of the Fox comedy “Mrs. Doubtfire,” is getting ready to hand in a new, more reality-based script to producer Leonard Goldberg: “The Secret Life of Girls” is a story about marriage, men and commitment from the female perspective.

“You always hear about guys who are really scared to commit, and I guess for most men the terror is felt before the question is popped,” said Singer.

“But for our part, we’re sitting there, tapping our fingers, wondering when the damn question is gonna be asked. And once it is, that’s when we start getting scared.”

Singer described the project as “a female ‘Diner’ with elements of ‘The Big Chill,’ ” in which five femme friends get together for a weekend, sharing their fears and dreams before one of them is set to get married.

“Girls” is the first title in Singer’s recently inked two-pic deal at Fox; the second is still undetermined. She is also working on the remake of the 1947 Rex Harrison/Gene Tierney pic “The Ghost and Mrs. Muir.”

“Ghost” is the story of a widow who travels to a Maine beach house where she falls in love with the spirit of a sea captain.

Singer also just turned in the rewrite for “Pet People” at Amblin, which is the story about a household full of pets that turn into people overnight, attempting to help their masters out of a jam. Sources said “Seinfeld’s” Michael Richards, who plays Kramer on the sitcom, is currently considering the centerpiece role of the dog.

Singer is repped by Bruce Kaufman from Broder, Kurland, Webb, Uffner Agency.
