‘Family’ a Bel-Air affair

Busy duo sells Brooklyn to Oval Office tale for seven figures

NEW YORK — Warner Bros. Pictures-based Bel-Air Entertainment has seized Brian Koppelman and David Levien’s spec script “First Family” for mid- against high-seven figures. Bel-Air topper Steve Reuther will produce.

“First Family” centers on a young Brooklyn mobster who discovers that he was adopted on the eve of becoming “made.” He now needs to prove that he’s 100% Sicilian, but instead learns that his real father is the president of the United States.

Koppelman and Levien are currently rewriting “Heart of a Soldier,” a Paul Walker vehicle set up at U. The duo just completed rewrite work on the adaptation of John Grisham’s “The Runaway Jury” for New Regency. That pic will likely star Will Smith for director Mike Newell.

Repped by Endeavor, Koppelman and Levien directed, wrote and produced “Knockaround Guys,” which New Line Cinema will release next year.
