Martin pitch propels Paramount

Actor will re-team with Diane Keaton

Paramount Pictures has acquired “From Zero to Sixty,” a Steve Martin pitch for a comedy that will reteam him with “Father of the Bride” co-star Diane Keaton.

Robert Simonds will produce.

Simonds pitched Martin’s idea last week to each studio, and Par was the most aggressive in taking it off the table. Martin and Keaton would play a couple in the comedy.

WMA repped Martin and Simonds, Endeavor reps Keaton.

Paramount could put the pic into production this fall if a writer is drafted quickly.

Simonds is the producer of the “Pink Panther” series, and he and Martin just wrapped the Harald Zwart-directed “Pink Panther 2,” which will be released in February. They have already begun talking with writers about “Pink Panther 3.”

Keaton last starred in the Callie Khouri-directed “Mad Money.”
