Forman Helms ‘Flynt’

Milos Forman will likely direct “Larry Flynt” for Columbia Pictures, sources said.

The Oscar-winning helmer of “Amadeus” and “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest” has shown “serious interest” in taking over the project under executive producer Oliver Stone, according to insiders.

Officials at Columbia and at Ixtlan Prods., Stone’s company, had no comment on the report.

But sources said the first draft of the script, by “Ed Wood” scribes Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski, was good enough to put the project on a faster track at Col.

Flynt is the longtime publisher of Hustler magazine who was shot and paralyzed during an assassination attempt.

Bill Murray has been mentioned as a possibility to play the publisher.
