New Line hot on ‘Burning’

'Bedlam' to be helmed by Levinson

HOLLYWOOD — Baltimore/Spring Creek Pictures and Artists Production Group have teamed with scribe Jim Krieg to adapt Geoff Nicholson’s novel “Bedlam Burning” for New Line Cinema, with an eye toward Barry Levinson directing.

Story revolves around a charming wannabe writer and his less-than-suave school chum who has succeeded in writing a novel. Trouble starts when the bland pal asks his handsome friend to contribute his own photo for the book jacket, in hopes of stronger sales.

Levinson and Paula Weinstein, partners in Baltimore/Spring Creek, will produce the pic with APG’s Kathy Shulman. New Line exec VP Lynn Harris is overseeing the project’s development with Baltimore/Spring Creek exec VP Len Amato.
