David Kirkpatrick’s indie shingle Original Voices has ponied up a mid-six- against low-seven-figure sum for “Every Seven Minutes,” a sex comedy pitch from scribes Laurice Elehwany and Rick Copp (“The Brady Bunch Movie”).
Pic, to be produced by Paul E. Harvey, concerns a 17-year-old male virgin’s pursuit of a supermodel during his summer vacation. The project’s title refers to the frequency with which an average teenage male thinks about sex.
Copp and Elehwany worked on the first draft of “The Rules” for Paramount, based on the bestselling book. They also worked on “Private Parts” and “The Flintstones in Viva Rock Vegas.”
Formed in 1997 by ex-Paramount production prexy David Kirkpatrick, Original Voices’ first production was the indie Sundance comedy “The Opposite Sex.” The company was the producer of “Bruno,” Shirley Maclaine’s directorial debut, and is in post-production on “The Whole Shebang,” starring Stanley Tucci and Bridget Fonda.
The scribes’ deal was negotiated by Endeavor along with Robert Golenberg and Lanny Noveck at the William Morris Agency.
