Regency takes ‘Leap’

Bass to adapt romantic comedy based on Voigt novel

HOLLYWOOD — Regency Enterprises has signed on to develop and produce romantic comedy “Lovers Leap” with Amy Lanier’s Flat Penny Films and Pierce Brosnan’s Irish Dreamtime shingle.

Based on a novel by Cynthia Voigt, “Lovers Leap” centers on a butler who becomes smitten with an enchanting woman, who also happens to be the object of his wealthy employer’s affections. The servant then sets his sights on sabotaging his boss’s relationship while trying to win the woman for himself.

Ron Bass (“Memoirs of a Geisha”) will adapt the script. Bass, who previously penned Regency’s “Entrapment,” will also produce with Lanier, Brosnan and Irish Dreamtime partner Beau St. Clair.

It is unclear if Brosnan will play a role. No director has been attached.

Regency senior production veep Kara Francis will oversee “Lovers Leap” for production prexy Sanford Panitch. Francis also is shepherding “Headhunters,” written by Bass and developed with Fox 2000.

Lanier, who is repped by WMA, is working with Bass on an updated version of “State of the Union,” based on the play by Howard Lindsay and Russell Crouse. Both Bass and Brosnan are repped by CAA.
