‘Serendipity’ hits Chelsom

'Mighty' helmer pacts with Miramax

Peter Chelsom has closed a deal to helm the new Miramax comedy “Serendipity.”

The Blackpool, England, native most recently directed New Line’s Warren Beatty starrer “Town and Country.” He also helmed Miramax’s “The Mighty” (1998) and the Hollywood Pictures laffer “Funny Bones” (1995).

Marc Klein — who scripted “Love, Jenny,” a pic in development at Will Smith’s U-based Overbrook Entertainment — penned the romantic comedy about a couple who reunite 10 years after the night they first met, fell in love and agreed to go their separate ways, always believing they were destined to meet again.

Tapestry Films’ Peter Abrams and Robert Levy, the team behind Miramax’s last Dimension hit, “She’s All That,” are producing “Serendipity.” Chelsom’s producing partner Simon Field will assist in production duties.

Miramax’s Bob Osher brought the project to the mini-major. Osher and Meryl Poster will oversee the project.

Klein was repped by Brian Sher at Broder, Kurland, Webb & Uffner and by attorney Bryan Wolf; Chelsom is repped by the William Morris Agency.
