Regency grows ‘Flowergirl’

Laffer described as 'Annie Hall' with 11-year-olds

Regency Enterprises has sealed a deal with “Madeline” scribes Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin to write and direct their new script, tentatively titled “Flowergirl.”

Romantic comedy is described by the duo as “Annie Hall,” but with 11-year-olds. Like that Woody Allen pic, “Flowergirl” will be set in Gotham’s Upper West Side.

“She’s 11,” said Levin, “but he’s only 10¾, so he’s dating a mysterious, older woman.”

Both writers said they were inspired by George Roy Hill’s 1979 romancer “A Little Romance,” which starred Diane Lane. They wanted, as Levin put it, “to create a comedy about ‘first love’ for a new generation.”

Duo are life partners as well as writing partners. Together, they recently penned “Wimbledon,” starring Paul Bettany and Kirsten Dunst, for Universal and Working Title. That pic is due out next September.

“Flowergirl” is being produced by “Gilmore Girls” exec producer Gavin Polone via his Pariah label. It will be supervised by New Regency’s Kara Francis and production prexy Sanford Panitch. Flackett and Levin said the pic should be lensing by early summer next year.

They also are writing Navy drama “Enlisted” for DreamWorks Pictures, about a forbidden romance between a female officer and a noncommissioned seaman. DreamWorks picked up “Enlisted” in July for high six against low seven figures. It is being produced by Team Todd, which this month moved to Sony’s Revolution Studios.

Pair was repped by ICM.
