Par on Sullivan, Rudin ‘Shopping’ spree

Brit scribe also to helm romantic dramedy

Paramount Pictures has paid high-six against low-seven figures to purchase “Personal Shopping” for Scott Rudin Prods.

“Shopping,” written by Brit scribe Tim Sullivan, who will also direct, is an offbeat trans-Atlantic romantic dramedy in a vein similar to “Notting Hill”: An American man arrives in London, loses his bags and reluctantly must enlist a female personal shopper at an upscale department store to provide him with a new wardrobe.

Sullivan will also direct “Shopping.” He was introduced to Rudin by agent Nick Reed at ICM and Brit helmer Roger Michell, who is directing “Changing Lanes” for Rudin and Paramount.

Sullivan, currently penning a rewrite on “Shopping,” is expected to start production on the film after the potential strike period.

He most recently wrote “Walking Papers” for New Line Cinema. Other screen credits include an adaptation of “Pretenders,” which he wrote for director Ron Howard and Imagine Entertainment.
