New Line has bought spec script “Heirhead Apparent” from tyro scribe David Clawson.
Script is a “Legally Blonde”-like story about the spoiled daughter of a department store tycoon who campaigns to save the store after spending time with workers on the sales floor.
Mike Karz is producing. Katherine Brown, an exec at his New Line-based Karz Entertainment shingle, brought the project in and will oversee.
Kathy Busby and Luke Ryan are overseeing for the mini-major.
