Heckerling training for Fox 2000 pic

Athletic pic in genre of helmer's 'Clueless,' 'Fast Times'

Amy Heckerling has come aboard to direct “Sweat” at Fox 2000 Pictures, from a script by Eric Wald, who just penned Miramax Films’ recent Gwyneth Paltrow starrer “A View From the Top.”

Heckerling is best known for having helmed the socially satirical comedies “Clueless” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High,” and “Sweat” is in the same league. Pic is described as “Shampoo,” set in the world of athletic personal training, wherein an inveterate Lothario gives up bedding his training clients to start his own gym.

Heckerling has not directed a pic since Columbia Pictures’ 2000 laffer “Loser,” starring Jason Biggs and Mena Suvari. Heckerling also is being eyed for Fox 2000’s planned remake of Japanese-lingo pic “Afterlife” — a 1998 pic originally helmed and scripted by Hirokazu Koreeda.

Heckerling and Laura Hopper will produce “Sweat.” Hopper co-produced Wald’s spec “A View” at Miramax after discovering him at a UCLA screenwriting competish where she was a judge.

Both Heckerling and Wald are repped by CAA.
