Col TriStar backs ‘Sez’

Rodman to star in action-comedy, Elder debuts at helm

Columbia TriStar Motion Picture Group will finance the Dennis Rodman vehicle “Simon Sez.”

Dane Cook, John Pinette and Ricky Harris will co-star in the pic, which is the directorial debut of writer/producer Kevin Elders (“Iron Eagle”).

The action-comedy, which began shooting in France last week, is being produced by Signature Entertainment Group’s Moshe Diamant and action director Ringo Lam (“Maximum Risk”).

In the pic, Rodman plays an Interpol agent who, together with his friend Nick (Cook), must rescue the kidnapped daughter of an old associate. He teams up with two monks, played by standup comedians Pinette and Harris, who happen to be computer geniuses.

Signature has a first-look production deal with Columbia Pictures, and CTMPG will have a first look at distributing “Sez.” CTMPG has domestic rights to Signature’s upcoming Jean Claude Van Damme actioner, “Knock Off.”

CTMPG financed Don Roos’ “The Opposite of Sex,” which another Sony division, Sony Pictures Classics, released theatrically in the U.S.

Basketball player Rodman had his first major starring role opposite Van Damme in “Double Team,” for Sony and Mandalay Entertainment.

Diamant has produced a string of Van Damme pics, including “Hard Target,” “Timecop,” “The Quest” and “Double Team.”

Pinette has had roles in features “Junior” and “Dear God.”

ICM reps Rodman, Cook and Pinette.
