Miles set to pen ‘Porn’ pic

Film based on true controversial story

Comedy Central and Tribeca Prods. have enlisted Gotham-based screenwriter-thesp A.D. Miles to pen a feature film, tentatively titled “Porn N’ Chicken,” based on the true story of a controversy that arose when Yale students made a porn film with fellow students as actors.

Pic will be produced under Comedy Central’s nascent feature division, headed by Patty Newburger. At Robert De Niro and Jane Rosenthal’s Tribeca shingle, exec veep of production Naomi Despres and veep Hardy Justice will oversee the project.

Feathers flew

The story created a stir in the national media last fall after an article in the New York Times reported that a campus club called Porn ‘n’ Chicken had produced a short sexually explicit film called “The StaXXX.” CAA and attorney Jeff Frankel repped the rights to the four students involved — Jamie Ponsoldt, Colin Spoelman, Josh Newman and Bill Marino — each of whom will get an associate producer credit on the pic.

Miles, whose pact was brokered by ICM, Principato-Young and attorney Rick Genow, recently produced and directed several short films for Robert Smigel’s “TV Funhouse” on Comedy Central. His first short, “Ray Has Sex,” preemed at the U.S. Comedy Arts Festival in Aspen; it was later expanded into a half-hour pilot for MTV.

Miles also wrote and starred in the short “Girl Go Boom,” which had its premiere at Sundance. He is currently co-starring in the USA Films’ release “Wet Hot American Summer,” along with Janeane Garofalo and David Hyde Pierce. He’ll next be seen in Sundance and Toronto film fest pic “The Believer,” by Henry Bean.
