‘Mice,’ ‘Mutts’ at Winchester

Co. to also handle int'l rights for 'A-hole'

Winchester Films is developing a slate of projects with its inhouse production companies Wind Dancer Films and the Donners Co.

With Wind Dancer, Winchester is developing “Fifty Mice,” a thriller about a man with amnesia who is placed in a witness protection program against his will. Daniel Pyne (“Sum of All Fears”) penned the script.

With the Donners, Winchester is developing two projects, both comedies.

“A-hole,” written by Heidi Van Lier, is the story of a man who must live up to his unfortunate nickname.

“Match Mutts,” penned by Shaina Carol, is a tale of two dogs who fall in love and conspire to get their owners to do the same.

Winchester will handle international rights on both “Fifty Mice” and “A-hole,” but is currently attached only as an executive producer on “Match Mutts.”

Wind Dancer, headed by partners Matt Williams, David McFadzean and Carmen Finestra, signed an exclusive three-year deal with Winchester in January 2001. They are also working on “Harv the Barbarian,” which is set up at DreamWorks with Rob Schneider to star.

Richard Donner and Lauren Schuler Donner signed their three-year pact with Winchester just before last year’s Cannes Film Festival.

Winchester Entertainment is headed by Gary Smith, while L.A.-based Winchester Films is led by prexy Hadeel Reda.

Shingle premiered the feature “Scorched” starring Rachael Leigh Cook in the Cannes market on Friday.
