Pleshette taps Roy

Lit boutique expands on raft of high-profile pix

The Lynn Pleshette Agency, a lit boutique agency, has promoted Heather Roy to agent. Roy will cover all the major studios and will concentrate on developing a new list of half-hour comedy writers.

Promotion comes as the shingle has grown in profile: Pleshette and her team were the film agents for “The Shipping News,” the Annie Proulx novel on which the forthcoming Miramax/Kevin Spacey pic is based; “The Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood,” by Rebecca Wells, an upcoming Warner Bros. pic starring Sandra Bullock and directed by Callie Khouri; and “Cold Mountain,” the Charles Frazier novel that Anthony Minghella has adapted and will direct for Miramax, with Tom Cruise to star and Mirage and Bonafide to produce.

Of good ‘Cheer’

Most recently, the Pleshette Agency sold the John McLaughlin spec “Cheer Up” to Bel Air Films, from a story by Scott Lobdell. And the boutique recently repped scribe Scott Smith (“A Simple Plan”) to adapt Mark Helprin’s novel “Winter’s Tale” for Ben Stiller and David Picker; Sam Montgomery to rewrite his “In the Lake” for helmer Jon Amiel and producer Jorge Saralegui, set up at Warners; Laura Cahill’s “Hysterical Blindness,” which stars Uma Thurman and is directed by Mira Nair, with Thurman and Blum Israel as producers for HBO; and Sara Goodman’s screenplay “Neurotica,” which has Gurinder Chadha attached to direct for producers Bonnie Bruckheimer, Julia Eisenman and Sara Risher.
