Parisot set to join Willis in ‘Me Again’

Good vs. evil pic getting Americanized rewrite

Director Dean Parisot is near a deal to join Bruce Willis on “Me Again,” a thriller with comic overtones that is developing momentum at Intermedia Films and Cheyenne Enterprises.

Parisot, who last directed “Galaxy Quest” and has been very selective in choosing a followup, sparked to the “Me Again” story of a man who wakes up one day next to a dead body, unable to remember who he is. He learns that he is pitted against another man, and only one of them is good, the other evil. He hopes he’s the good one, but is hardly sure.

Willis and his Cheyenne partner Arnold Rifkin got involved in the project last January, when it was set up by London-based producer Beryl Vertue with Intermedia and BBC Films. “Me Again” will be produced by Rifkin, Nigel Sinclair, Guy East, David Willis and Vertue. Sources said Parisot will come aboard and that a writer will be hired quickly.

Under Parisot’s supervision, the scribe will give an American feel to a film whose original scribe is British. The hope is to get the rewrite done quickly so that the movie can go into production in early 2003. Parisot, who’s repped by UTA and 3 Arts, recently directed “Monk,” the pilot for the Tony Shalhoub mystery series on USA.
