Col ‘Up’ on Ephron pic

Nora Ephron and her sister Delia are “Hanging Up” on Columbia Pictures with their newest, partially autobiographical project, the studio confirmed Thursday.

The pic will mark the first fruits of Nora Ephron’s new deal with Col, which moved over from the now defunct Turner Pictures.

The two will write, and Nora Ephron will direct, the story about three sisters and their relationship with a difficult father. As he is dying, one of the sisters reflects on her past and realizes the role her father played in their lives.

Pic will be based on the book by Delia Ephron that is said to be loosely about her own family. The project had been languishing on the TriStar development shelf, but Col president of production Amy Pascal spoke to the Ephrons about shifting it to Columbia. In the new glasnostian era at Sony, TriStar agreed.

Laurence Mark (“Black Widow,” “Working Girl”) is producing the pic. Columbia senior VP of production Michael Costigan is the exec overseeing the project.

ICM agent Jim Wiatt brokered the deal for the Ephron sisters.

The project reunites Ephron with Pascal, who oversaw the hit John Travolta starrer “Michael” when she was president of production of Turner Pictures.
