Revolution takes U turn to ‘Stanford’

Howard, Imagine to produce; McCulloch to helm

Joe Roth’s Revolution Studios has shelled out a seven-figure sum to Universal for “Stealing Stanford,” an original script Martin Hynes penned, rewritten by Peter Tolan (“We Fellow Americans”) in turnaround from U.

The project had been set up at U via Imagine Entertainment for three years. At Revolution, Ron Howard and Imagine will produce with Bruce McCulloch (“Superstar”) attached to direct.

Chris Brancato and Bert Salke are exec producing.

Story revolves around a middle-class man who turns to a life of crime in order to finance his niece’s first year at Stanford U.

Hynes has penned for Imagine a remake of “The Incredible Shrinking Man” and just completed “Expiration Date” for Imagine and U, to which Martin Lawrence is attached to star. As an actor, he starred in the short film “George Lucas in Love.”

McCulloch, Brancato and Salke are repped by UTA. Tolan is repped by the William Morris Agency, Hynes by Original Artists.
