D’Works snags ‘Diamond’ spec

DreamWorks has mined David Fuller’s action comedy spec script “Diamond Head” in a mid-six-figure deal for Karen Spiegel to produce, sources said Friday.

Pic is a wedding farce set in Hawaii about a police detective whose biggest case of his career comes to a head on his wedding day.

No talent or helmer is attached.

DreamWorks production exec Jason Hoffs will oversee the project.

DreamWorks is looking at Thanksgiving 1998 for a release. One source described it as “the perfect date movie.”

Spiegel last produced “Absolute Power” for Castle Rock Entertainment. She is currently a co-exec producer on the four-hour CBS miniseries “Total Control.” She is also working with “Absolute Power” novelist David Baldacci on setting up his novel “The Winner” at a studio.

Agent Dan Ostroff brokered the deal for Fuller and Spiegel. Attorneys Linda Lichter and Pieter Nichols of Lichter, Grossman, Nichols & Adler also repped the pair.
