Granada, mudd will reteam for ‘Found’

Kinney to cut directorial teeth on Highsmith novel

Granada Film and mr. mudd, which most recently paired to produce MGM’s “Ghost World,” have reteamed to produce the feature adaptation of the Patricia Highsmith novel “Found in the Street.” Legit director and Steppenwolf Theater co-founder Terry Kinney will make his bigscreen helming debut on the pic.

Adapted by Philip Levens and Phyllis Nagy, “Found” is slated to go into production this fall. Mr. mudd’s Lianne Halfon, John Malkovich and Russell Smith will produce, along with Susan Adler. Granada Film U.K. will serve as executive producer on the project.

Deception, murder

Set in Greenwich Village, “Found” follows chance encounters among a married man, a neighborhood busybody and a seemingly innocent young beauty that lead to suspicion, deception and murder.

Mr. mudd, which has a first-look arrangement with Granada Film, completed principal photography on “Ghost World,” starring Thora Birch and Steve Buscemi, in May and wrapped production on the Malkovich-helmed “The Dancer Upstairs” in July.

‘Cuckoo’ for Kinney

Kinney, a series regular on HBO’s “Oz,” is currently directing Steppenwolf’s London production of “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,” starring Gary Sinise.

Also with Granada Film, mr. mudd is gearing for production on “IPO,” written by Po Bronson and set in Silicon Valley.

Kinney was represented in the deal by Larry Taube of the Gersh Agency.
