Randolph inks trio of script pacts

'Gale' scribe pacts with Misher-Working Title and Col TriStar

Charles Randolph, who wrote “The Life of David Gale,” a Kevin Spacey-Laura Linney pic that Alan Parker begins lensing for Universal next month, has inked deals for three scripts.

Kevin Misher and Working Title have hired him to pen the political drama “The Interpreter,” a tale of international intrigue.

Columbia TriStar has inked a two-pilot script deal with Randolph. Jersey Television and Brad Grey Television will jointly produce for the studio.

The two deals are both in the seven figures.

The deal with Working Title and Misher is the first that Misher has announced since exiting U earlier this year and hanging his own shingle.

“Our first and only choice to write this movie was Charles Randolph,” Misher told Daily Variety.

The Columbia TriStar deal reunites Randoph and Jersey, who worked together on ABC pilot “Silicon Stories.”

Brad Grey and Jersey are “among the very few to successfully navigate the narrow passage between art and commerce,” said Randolph.

Randolph, who’s writing “The Paper Trail” for Chuck Weinstock and Castle Rock, is repped by CAA and Industry’s Margaret Riley.
