Allen pretty in ‘Pink’ for Revolution Studios

Script to undergo a rewrite; prod'n to start later this year

Tim Allen’s getting ready to go door to door as a cosmetics salesman, signing on to star in Revolution Studios’ comedy “In the Pink.”

Pic, which is being prepped to start production later this year, revolves around a Texas playboy who, after being laid off from his cushy corporate gig, teams with a group of women to sell cosmetics. On the job, he ends up uncovering the secret to understanding women and becomes the top cosmetics seller in the nation.

Based on a pitch by former “Saturday Night Live” producer Ryan Shiraki, “In the Pink” was originally scripted by Steven Brill. Script is now expected to undergo a rewrite, with Revolution seeking a new writer.

Project was brought to Revolution partner Todd Garner by Dan Halsted, who will produce along with Garner. Revolution exec Scott Bernstein will oversee pic’s development.

Matt Carroll, prexy of production of Allen’s Disney-based production shingle Boxing Cat Prods. will co-produce the pic.

Allen, who is repped by the William Morris Agency and Messina/Baker Entertainment, most recently starred in the “Santa Clause 2,” which he also produced through Boxing Cat. Pic grossed $135 million.

He’s also set to star in Paramount Pictures and Nickelodeon Films’ bigscreen version of the classic TV show “Father Knows Best” and is attached to Disney’s remake of “The Shaggy Dog” and a third installment of “The Santa Clause.”

Halsted is producing Columbia Pictures’ upcoming actioner “S.W.A.T.,” with Colin Farrell and Samuel L. Jackson, and “Beyond Borders” for Mandalay Pictures and Paramount, which stars Angelina Jolie and Clive Owen.
