The ‘Hole’ package

Krevoy buys script, plans bundle for studio

Brad Krevoy and the Motion Picture Corp. of America have acquired Charlie Peters’ comedy spec script “Bass Hole” for a six-figure advance against a potential $1 million payday if the film gets made.

Krevoy, who describes “Bass Hole” as being “in the vein of ‘Caddyshack’ for the ’90s. It’s a very broad-based comedy centered around twin brothers, one good and one bad.”

Krevoy, who recently reacquired the MPCA assets and name from MGM, said he now intends to package the script with a director and actor before trying to set it up at a studio. He said he hopes to start production in late summer.

The MPCA topper points to past deals involving “Dumb and Dumber,” “Threesome,” “Biodome,” “Beverly Hills Ninja,” “Kingpin,” and “Honky!” as similar packaging deals he has sold.

Eliminated middleman

Peters didn’t go through his Endeavor representation on the deal, but brought the script directly to Krevoy, with whom he made Orion’s “Music From Another Room.”

“Brad was sick that day and home reading scripts, so I went to his house and dropped it off,” Peters said. “I was both writer and the messenger on this.”

Peters’ credits include the screenplays for “Three Men and a Little Lady,” “Blame It on Rio,” “Krippendorf’s Tribe,” “My Father, the Hero,” “Passed Away,” (which he also directed), and “Paternity.”

Peters joked that it’s too early in the process to know what the film’s final version will be.

“You never know what the director will be thinking,” he said. “Sometimes you’re thinking ‘Waterboy’ and they’re thinking ‘English Patient.’ “
