Green ‘Monster’ in play

Thesp to script 'Il Mostro' adaptation

Spyglass Entertainment is putting an American face on “The Monster”: the Disney-based shingle has cast Tom Green (MTV’s “The Tom Green Show”) as the lead in its English-language adaptation of Roberto Benigni’s 1994 Italian comedy “Il Mostro.”

Green is also writing the adaptation. No start date or director has been is set. Producers are Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and David Hoberman. Exec producers are Benigni, Jonathan Glickman and Howard Lapides.

The tender trap

In “Il Mostro,” a nice guy, through a series of misconstrued actions, is thought to be Public Enemy No. 1. When a beautiful female undercover cop is sent in to trap the “criminal” into committing another crime, she falls in love with him.

Green, who next appears in DreamWorks Pictures’ “Road Trip” due in theaters on May 19, will also star in MBST/Lloyd Prods.’ “Freddy Got Fingered,” which he co-wrote with Derek Harvey.

Plays himself

Best known for playing himself in the MTV series “The Tom Green Show,” Green also appeared in “Superstar” and “Tom Green: Tonsil Hockey.”

Spyglass’ next release is the Jackie Chan and Owen Wilson starrer “Shanghai Noon,” due in theaters on May 26.

Green is repped by the William Morris Agency and manager Howard Lapides.
