Interscope gets Berg’s next pic

Initial Entertainment retains worldwide rights

CANNES — Actor Peter Berg, whose directorial debut, “Very Bad Things,” briefly stirred the otherwise sedate L.A. acquisitions community into a lather of excitement, has signed to helm his next picture for Polygram-owned Interscope Communications.

Berg described the pic, currently untitled, as a “heist gone wrong involving a group of New York City firefighters.”

BallPark Prods.’ Michael Schiffer, who produced “Things,” will produce the pic with Interscope’s Ted Field, Scott Kroopf and Erica Huggins.

“Things” was co-financed with Graham King and Cindy Cowan’s Initial Entertainment Group, which retained international rights. However, Polygram will have worldwide rights to the next pic.
