'Titsiana' tops writer-director's slate

NEW YORK — Australian writer-director Robert Luketic will make a full-length version of his musical comedy short “Titsiana Booberini” and two other features for Miramax Films.

Pic supervision

The project will be supervised by Miramax director of development Robbie Brenner and director of acquisitions Matt Brodlie, who brought Luketic to Weinstein’s attention after screening “Titsiana.”

On behalf of Miramax, the deal was negotiated by execs Charles Layton and Steven Hutensky. Alan Hergott of Bloom, Hergott, Cook, Diemer & Klein, and Howard Cohen of UTA negotiated on behalf of Luketic, who is managed by the Gold/Miller Co.

“I was really blown away by ‘Titsiana Booberini,’ ” said Miramax co-chairman Harvey Weinstein. “It promises to be a very entertaining feature length film.”

“I am thrilled and delighted to have signed with Miramax,” said Luketic.
