C23 plants pic deal with hyphenate Field

'Bedroom' debut to be released in November

Catch 23 Entertainment has inked an exclusive deal with writer-director Todd Field and his production outfit, Standard Film Co., to write, direct and produce his next picture for C23.

An actor turned helmer, Field received wide critical praise on the festival circuit for his feature film debut, “In the Bedroom,” which bowed at the 2001 Sundance Film Festival and will be released by Miramax Films in November.

C23 prexy Jeremy Barber began courting Field in January after his company was frustrated in attempts to acquire “Bedroom” through its relationship with Universal Focus.

“Bedroom,” which won a special jury prize at Sundance for stars Sissy Spacek and Tom Wilkinson, was adapted by Robert Festinger and Field from a short story by Andre Dubus about a New England family in the throes of tragedy.

Field, who is best known as an actor in such films as “Eyes Wide Shut,” “Ruby in Paradise,” “Walking and Talking” and “Twister,” is a graduate of the American Film Institute, where he received the Franklin J. Schaffner Fellow Award for his 1995 short film “Nonnie and Alex.”

Barber and Marc Danon, C23’s VP production and acquisitions, will oversee development and production on the Field project, with C23 controlling worldwide distribution rights.

Field was repped in the deal by Endeavor.
