WB grabs Goldberg pitch

'Deuce' scribe sells for mid-six

On the heels of the successful opening weekend of “Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo,” the pic’s scribe Harris Goldberg has sold an untitled pitch to Warner Bros. for a mid-six-figure pricetag.

It’s a case of mistaken identity in the “Ferris Bueller” style comedy that finds a high school student confused for a college biology tutor, subsequently enabling him to land the coed of his dreams.

WB exec VP of theatrical production Kevin McCormick and creative exec Dan Lin shepherded the pitch on behalf of the studio, and Goldberg’s manager Warren Zide will produce with partner Craig Perry through their Zide/Perry Entertainment.

Goldberg co-wrote “Deuce Bigalow” with former “SNL”-er Rob Schneider. Pic, which involved many of the “Big Daddy” creative principals, including Adam Sandler, Jack Giarraputo and Sid Ganis, raked in $13 million last weekend.

Goldberg’s credits include 1998’s “I’ll Be Home for Christmas,” and Disney’s “D3: The Mighty Ducks.”

Producers Zide/Perry, which scored big with this summer’s “American Pie,” will next bow New Line’s “Final Destination.”

Attorney Eric Weissmann of Weissmann, Wolff, Bergman, Coleman & Silverman, and UTA’s Marty Bowen repped Goldberg on the deal.
