Miramax nabs ‘All That’

Miramax has bought and greenlit the teen comedy spec “She’s All That” for producers Peter Abrams and Robert Levy’s Tapestry Films, according to sources.

The script, described as ” ‘Pygmalion’ in high school,” is the first sale for scripter Lee Fleming. The deal is said to be worth mid-six figures.

While no director has been named, the filmmakers plan to shoot early next year.

Based on an idea by Tapestry veep Jennifer Gibgot, “She’s All That” is about a teen stud who bets a pal he can turn the high school’s geekiest female student into the next prom queen — and then falls in love with her.

Abrams and Levy are producing; Gibgot will co-produce along with Rich Hull.

Miramax veeps Jill Messick and Meryl Poster brought the project to the company.

L.A.-based production company Tapestry is now producing the Jim Abrahams-helmed Touchstone pic “Jane Austen’s Mafia.” Previous credits include “A Kid in King Arthur’s Court” and “Point Break.”

Miramax reps could not be reached for comment.
