Siega to test ‘Chaos’ theory for pic pair

Reynolds to star in Castle Rock laffer

Marcos Siega has been hired to direct comedy “Chaos Theory” for Castle Rock Entertainment and Warner Independent Pictures, with Ryan Reynolds set to star.

Inferno Distribution is financing the pic, which producer Frederic Golchan has been trying to bring to the bigscreen for 12 years. Project was originally set up at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Screenplay by Daniel Taplitz is a story within a story about a man who finds out he is sterile and that his daughter was actually fathered by his best friend.

Golchan and Inferno Distribution’s Bill Johnson are producing. Jim Seibel, Johnson’s partner at Inferno, exec produces.

WIP will release the film in North America, while Inferno will handle international rights. Production is slated to begin in early 2006.

Siega, who directed indie drama “Pretty Persuasion,” said he was looking for a romantic comedy project. “It’s more of a farce than anything,” he told Daily Variety.

Siega’s feature directing credits also include “Underclassman,” which Miramax released earlier this month.

Reynolds appears in the upcoming Inferno production “Just Friends,” which New Line is releasing domestically and Inferno internationally. Thesp is also attached to star in “Ride Along” with Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson.
