Golchan sets up two pix

Nelson to adapt 'Strangers,' Siega to helm 'Chaos'

Frederic Golchan has set up a remake of a Patrice Leconte film, “Intimate Strangers,” at Paramount Pictures and romantic comedy “Chaos Theory” at Warner Independent Pictures.

“Intimate Strangers” is the story of a woman who goes into an office that she believes is that of her new shrink and bares her soul to an accountant.

Bob Nelson, who wrote Alexander Payne’s upcoming pic, “Nebraska,” will adapt.

Paramount Classics released Leconte’s film last year, which gave the studio first right of refusal on the remake rights.

Golchan will produce “Intimate Strangers” with Ted Field at Radar Pictures, where Golchan’s offices are based.

“Pretty Persuasion” helmer Marcos Siega will direct “Chaos Theory,” a romantic comedy written by Daniel Taplitz.

Pic is the tale of an obsessively organized man whose life devolves into chaos. Castle Rock Entertainment produces the pic with Golchan.
