Miramax inks scribe duo for ‘Ultimate’

Raimos to oversee production

In a preemptive purchase, Miramax Films has taken comedy “The Ultimate Low Self-Esteem Movie” off the market, penned by scribes Jennifer Heath and Michele J. Wolff.

Miramax director of creative affairs Michelle Raimos brought the project to the studio and will oversee its development.

Scribes will be paid $500,000 against high-six figures.

Story centers on a young woman who, after being dumped by everyone, finally finds what appears to be the perfect guy but for one minor problem: He’s trying to kill her.

Heath and Wolff recently sold their pitch “Tiny Boyfriend” to Paramount, to which Lynda Obst is attached to produce.

Heath also recently sold “The Day I Went Missing,” a suspense story, to Miramax. Wes Craven is attached to direct; St. Martin’s Press will publish.

Both scribes found their way to screenwriting via penning half-hour sitcoms. They have also engaged in considerable uncredited feature rewrite work, including Wolff’s efforts on Disney’s “Dinosaur.”

Heath and Wolff are repped by Linne Radmin and Robyn Meisinger of the Radmin Co., and attorney’s Warren Dern and Patti Felker at Nelson, Levine, Felker and Dern.

For Miramax, deal was brokered by Steve Hutensky, senior veep of business affairs.
