Universal to distribute Spyglass drama

Dermot Mulroney will pal around with Greg Kinnear in “Flash of Genius,” a Spyglass drama to be distributed by Universal.

Mulroney will play Gil Privick, best friend of Robert Kearns (Kinnear) and owner of a chain of auto-parts stores. Kearns invented the intermittent windshield wiper and sued Detroit automakers over patent infringement.

Pic is currently lensing in Toronto. Marc Abraham is directing from a screenplay by Philip Railsback, Scott Frank and Abraham based on a New Yorker story.

Mulroney most recently appeared in “Gracie,” “Zodiac” and “Georgia Rule.”
