Kaufman’s deal in ‘Legalese’

Director Philip Kaufman has inked a development pact with New Line Cinema that likely will be used to attach him to the comedy “Legalese,” the studio confirmed.

Kaufman’s deal will be open-ended, but New Line reportedly is looking to get “Legalese” into production as soon as possible.

Production exec veepee Richard Saperstein said New Line would soon go out to A-list talent for both roles.
