‘Deli’ on plate with pic pair

Poster, Blum team for 'Korean'

NEW YORK — Superb Entertainment’s Meryl Poster and Blumhouse’s Jason Blum are teaming with New Line to produce a bigscreen adaptation of Ben Ryder Howe’s upcoming tome “My Korean Deli.”

Book from publisher Bloomsbury USA follows a couple who open up a deli.

Blumhouse exec VP Tracy Underwood is co-producing the pic. New Line VP, production and acquisitions Meredith Finn brought the project into the mini-major.

No writer has been tapped yet to adapt.

Project marks the teaming of two former Miramax vets in Poster and Blum.

Late last year, Poster — who was Miramax production co-prexy for 16 years under Bob and Harvey Weinstein — inked a multipronged deal with NBC Universal to produce TV shows and features. U had first crack at “Deli,” and Poster subsequently took the project to New Line.

“It has heart and humor. In our hectic lives, everyone dreams of opening a deli,” said Poster.

Blumhouse is based at Paramount.

His shingle’s credits include the upcoming “The Darwin Awards,” which Bauer Martinez scooped up at Sundance and will roll out through MGM.
