Stevens nabs ‘Hight Tide’ rights

TV vet Fauci attached as a producer

GreeneStreet Films co-topper Fisher Stevens has acquired rights to Jim Lynch’s coming-of-age-novel “The Highest Tide” and will direct the project himself.

Screenplay will be financed by Sriram Das; financier recently signed for a three-picture development fund with GreeneStreet.

GreeneStreet is a possible, but not definite, shingle to produce, Stevens said.

Veteran television producer Dan Fauci is attached as a producer on the project.

Lynch tome was acclaimed by crix when it was released in 2005. It tells the story of a 13-year-old boy in Washington state who makes an environmental discovery, bringing him a measure of unwanted fame. Project has been compared to “The Squid and the Whale” and “Thumbsucker.”

Indiewood fixture Stevens has long list of credits as producer and exec producer, including “Tadpole,” “Prairie Home Companion” and upcoming “Tenderness,” a Russell Crowe starrer about a police investigation, which Lionsgate will distribute. Stevens also co-directed Dan Klores’ docu “Crazy Love,” a Sundance hit that sold to Magnolia at the fest.

Kim Witherspoon handled the deal for Lynch and Vicki Cherkas repped Stevens.
