Mirage building Wright feature

Sydney Pollack’s Paramount-based Mirage Enterprises has enlisted playwright/scribe Rick Cleveland to pen a screenplay based on the life of legendary architect Frank Lloyd Wright.

A project about the influential designer of such notable landmarks as the Guggenheim Museum and the Pennsylvania residence Falling Water has been bandied about for years by several producers, most notably Joel Silver, a fan of the architect’s work.

Cleveland, also an avowed Wright fanatic, earned the attention of Pollack while the playwright was researching Wright’s life for a play.

Aside from the location-friendly aspects of a Wright story, his life was marked by three stormy marriages, the creation of the Prairie and Usonian styles of architecture, and rebuilding his famed Taliesin home after a crazed servant murdered seven people and burned down most of the structure.

Cleveland’s adaptation of his legit show “Tom and Jerry” currently is in development at Live Entertainment.

Cleveland was repped on the deal by the Gersh Agency’s Lee Keele and attorney Eric J. Feig. Cleveland now is repped by Innovative Artists’ Jim Garavente.
