Miramax, Rudin move on ‘Man’

Cherkis' spec script is writer's first major sale

Miramax Films is moving forward with “Man Under,” a spec script by Ann Cherkis.

Pic will be produced by Scott Rudin, Alexandra Milchan and Aimee Peyronnet.

Miramax optioned the project right before the writers strike ensued in November and has just begun the development process.

“Man Under” revolves around a dysfunctional family that comes together again when photographs taken of them become the centerpiece of a MOMA exhibition, giving them newfound celebrity.

It’s the first major script sale for Cherkis, who once worked for the photo agency Magnum.
