Graham gunning for ‘.45’

Lennon to helm dark comedy

Heather Graham has attached herself to “.45,” a script penned by Gary Lennon with which he will make his directorial debut.

Pic may attempt to lens prior to possible strikes next spring. Graham’s attachment is contingent upon a male co-star, still to be cast, over whom Graham has approval.

Barbara De Fina (“Goodfellas”) will produce. De Fina and Lennon will shop the project to the studios.

Story is a dark comedy about a Bonnie and Clyde-like couple who turn on each other in Manhattan’s Hell’s Kitchen.

Lennon has also sold his spec “Conchette” to producer Mickey Liddell (“Go”) at Banner Entertainment for low-six against a mid-six figures.

An autobiographical story, “Conchette” centers on a grandmother who is a bookie and runs a numbers racket with her grandson — against the rest of the family’s wishes. No director is attached.

In addition, Lennon sold an untitled pitch set in the world of DJs to Fox Searchlight, with Ice Cube’s CubeVision’s Matt Alvarez and The Firm’s Aaron Ray producing. Fox Searchlight creative exec Josh Deighton will oversee the project for the studio.

Lennon’s deals were brokered by the William Morris Agency and his attorney George Davis at Nelson, Guggenheim, Felkner and Levine.

Graham is repped by AMG and the law firm of Barnes, Morris, Klein and Yorn.
