TOUCHSTONE INKS ‘PRENUP’ DEAL

While many screenwriters sell six-figure pitches, few scripts are as eagerly awaited as Gigi Levangie’s “Prenup.”

Earlier this month, Touchstone Pictures president Donald DeLine purchased Levangie’s idea for a romantic comedy about the complications that ensue when an engaged couple start negotiating a prenuptial agreement.

And while producer-director Lawrence Kasdan has expressed interest in the project, industry wags already are hot to read the script for another reason: to see whether the male lead will be a spiky-haired producer who is partnered with a former child star in a top production company. In the real world, Levangie is engaged to Imagine Entertainment’s Brian Grazer.

Levangie has several other projects in development around town, including her script “Stepmom,” which Wendy Finerman is producing at TriStar Pictures with Susan Sarandon and Julia Roberts as potential leads.

The scribe also recently finished a rewrite on “Wish” for Robert Simonds at Universal. On the “Prenup” deal, Levangie was repped by Paradigm’s Lucy Stille. No one would comment on whether Levangie’s script is simply a “romance a clef.”
