Pay mid-six figs for scribes Birnbaum's and Seitzman's pitch
LAS VEGAS — Hollywood Pictures has paid mid-six-figures for “One Last Fling,” a pitch to be written by Stuart Birnbaum and Michael Seitzman.
The romantic comedy centers on a man with a phobia about making commitments who runs into an ex-girlfriend about to marry another man. The guy convinces his ex to join him in one last fling before her wedding. He falls in love with her and faces a dilemma: If he breaks up her wedding plans, a commitment will be in the cards.
David Vogel made the buy, and the film will be produced by Caravan’s Roger Birnbaum, Stuart’s brother.
Stuart Birnbaum most recently adapted the W.P. Kinsella novel “If Wishes Were Horses” for Fox 2000. He’s also a producer on “A Course in Miracles,” the Michael Petroni-scripted Touchstone film to be directed by Jerry Zucker.
Seitzman, who wrote and directed the indie film “Farmer and Chase,” also scripted “Fairy Godbrothers,” a comedy at Miramax. Birnbaum is repped by Geoffrey Brandt of the Brandt Co. and Seitzman is repped by Ramses IsHak and Sophy Holodnik at William Morris.
