DreamWorks inks Levitt pitch

'Lump' well received, gets mid to low six fig deal

DreamWorks has picked up a pitch from scripter Steve Levitt, who came up with a remake of the Mexican pic “El Bulto.”

Hearing that Levitt was about to talk with Universal and at least one other studio about “The Lump,” DreamWorks senior production exec Glenn Williamson arranged for the preemptive buy, in the mid-six to low-six figures, with feature head Bob Cooper.

Film would focus on a student radical at Berkeley in the 1960s who has a wife and a 6-month-old daughter. He is hit on the head during a protest and wakes up 25 years later.

The pitch for “Lump” was brought to DreamWorks by Ned Gusick, of Jacobs/Mutrux Prods. ICM’s Jim Rosen negotiated the deal.
