Becker tapped for ‘Lady Killer’

Wood to pen Togawa adaptation of New Legend pic

HOLLYWOOD — Harold Becker has been tapped to direct “The Lady Killer,” for New Legend Media to produce.

Bradley Wood will pen the adaptation of the 1963 novel by Japanese author Masako Togawa. “Lady Killer” is a mystery surrounding a string of gruesome murders, with all evidence pointing to a ladies’ man. There’s a seductive gentleman who fits the description, but he’s innocent — and he seems to have been assigned a novice attorney, in hopes that he’ll lose the case.

The picture will be produced by Alex Campbell and New Legend president Tom Berry, with Al Munteanu serving as executive producer.

Becker, who recently wrapped “Domestic Disturbance,” is repped by the William Morris Agency and manager Mike Marcus. Wood is repped by WMA.

Production and financing company New Legend was formed last year through a merger of Legend Entertainment and ACC Entertainment. New Legend will be selling the title at this year’s Mifed market.
