Nabs pitch from scribe Scott
HOLLYWOOD — Disney has paid low- against mid-six figures for the pitch “Glam” from scribe Darin Scott.
Pic, which Scott is now penning, is an action comedy about a struggling Brooklyn hairdresser who is recruited by the U.S. government and sent to the French Riviera on a dangerous, secret mission.
Debra Martin Chase (“The Princess Diaries”), who recently signed an overall production deal at the Mouse House (Daily Variety, Oct. 8), will produce the pic for Disney.
Disney creative exec LouAnne Brickhouse brought project into the studio and will oversee it with Buena Vista Motion Picture Group exec veep Mark Vahradian.
Scott, who is repped by Writers & Artists Agency, recently wrote “Cleopatra Jones” for Warner Bros. He also produced “Menace II Society,” for Allen and Albert Hughes, and co-wrote and produced “Tales From the Hood,” the horror anthology directed and co-written by Rusty Cundieff.
