Banner picks up a ‘Go!’ project

Banner Entertainment has purchased John August’s spec script “Go!” for a low six-figure sum.

Set in contemporary Los Angeles over a 24-hour period, the screenplay chronicles the interwoven misadventures of a supermarket check-out girl, a transplanted British drug dealer and two fledgling actors.

The project was brought to Banner VP of production Matt Freeman by Paul Rosenberg.

Rosenberg, who most recently served as senior VP of production at Miramax’s Dimension Films division, will produce the film with Banner co-toppers Mickey Liddell and Brian Swardstrom.

August has written adaptations of Madeline L’Engle’s “A Wrinkle in Time” for Miramax and Thomas Rockwell’s “How to Eat Fried Worms” for Imagine Entertainment and Universal.

He also penned the novelization of Oliver Stone’s “Natural Born Killers.”

August was repped by David Kramer, Marty Bowen and Jessica Swirnoff at United Talent Agency. Rosenberg’s deal was negotiated by attorney Michael Schenkman of Bloom, Hergott and Banner’s general counsel Eric Suddleson.

Banner’s first feature was the October Films release “Traveller,” starring Bill Paxton. The company also manages a number of actors, including Paxton, Edward Norton, Parker Posey; and directors including Guy Ferland and Stacy Title.
