Perabo looks to lock, load on ‘Molly Gunn’

Winick will direct for GreeneStreet Films

NEW YORK — Fresh from the dive bar of “Coyote Ugly,” Piper Perabo is in negotiations to topline “Molly Gunn.”

Gary Winick will direct the pic for GreeneStreet Films. Story concerns a Gotham socialite who works as the nanny of a precocious child to regain the respect of her boyfriend.

GreeneStreet partners John Pennoti and Fisher Stevens, who’ve been developing the project for two years, will produce with Allison Jacobs, who came up with the original idea for the script.

Niels Mueller and Kevin Kennedy penned the script, rewriting Julia Dahl and Lisa Davidowitz’s draft.

Pic is being overseen by GreeneStreet production head Tim Williams. Company partner Bradley Younover will coordinate financing through the shingle’s production fund. Production is slated to start in early 2001.

Winick, the head of digital produc-tion company InDigEnt, has helmed “The Tic Code”; “Sweet Nothing,” starring Mira Sorvino; and “Sam the Man,” with Stevens and Annabella Sciorra.

Perabo has appeared in “The Ad-ventures of Rocky & Bullwinkle” and “Whiteboys.”

Mueller and Kennedy also wrote “The Assassination of Richard Nixon.” Mueller will direct Sean Penn in the project.

Younover repped GreeneStreet in Winick’s deal; Allen Winick repped Winick. Perabo is repped by UTA, attorney Carlos Goodman and manager Tina Thor.
