Coulter to direct ‘Heartbeat’

Birnbaum, Cooper to produce laffer

Allen Coulter, Emmy-nominated helmer of “The Sopranos,” is set to make his feature directing debut with Landscape’s romantic comedy “In a Heartbeat.” A fall start is planned for the pic, written by Dina Chapman and Hopwood DePree (“Rhinoskin”).

“In a Heartbeat” tells the story of a beautiful rich girl and a petty criminal who seem to have nothing in common until they suffer simultaneous near- death experiences and fall madly in love in the tunnel between life and death.

When the man is revived, he embarks on a cross-country journey to find the woman, whom he now believes to be his soulmate. Michael Birnbaum, who brought the project into the company, will produce the film with Landscape topper Bob Cooper.

A Golden Globe winner for his producing work on “The Sopranos,” and an Emmy and double DGA nominee for his work on “Sopranos” and “Sex and the City,” Coulter also has been recognized for his work in short films with the ACE-nommed “The Secret Life of Mary Margaret” and his commercial directing, which includes the acclaimed “How You Doin’?” Budweiser spot.

Coulter, whose deal was negotiated by Broder Kurland Webb Ufner, is working on the new Alan Ball HBO series “Six Feet Under.”

Landscape is part of a strategic partnership with Canadian broadcasting giant CTV and has agreements to create miniseries for NBC and television movies for cabler F/X.
