Fox 2000 romances ‘Life’ laffer spec

Josephson to produce 'It' script

HOLLYWOOD — Fox 2000 has bought the spec script “Life as We Know It” by scribes Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson for mid-six against low-seven figures.

The romantic comedy concerns a pair of unattached adults forced to become instant parents when their mutual best friends perish in an accident after naming the two singles as caregivers for their orphaned daughter.

Deitchman and Robinson, repped by Original Artists, previously sold supernatural love story “Wildest Dreams” to MGM for $1 million and set up the pitch “Motor Mouth” at MGM.

Barry Josephson will produce under his Josephson Entertainment banner, making “Life as We Know It” the second project he has brought in under the first-look deal he signed with Fox last year following “Battle World” (Daily Variety, March 16). Josephson is also producing Fox’s “Like Mike,” set for a July release.

Jack Leslie will oversee “Life” for Fox 2000. Project was previously at Revolution Studios.
