Permut, Jones set ‘Discipline’

Duo to bring sci-fi novel to the bigscreen

David Permut and Steve Lee Jones will achieve a measure of “Discipline,” producing a feature version of Paco Ahlgren’s sci-fi adventure novel.

Story, published last year as Ahlgren’s first novel, centers on a man’s psychological battle with an enemy he cannot see. The outcome determines the past, present and future of human existence.

Permut Presentations will produce with Jones’ Bee Holder Prods. Permut Presentations VP Steve Longi will co-produce.

It’s the second teaming for Permut and Jones, who are also working on a feature about the life of the late automaker John DeLorean.

Permut’s in post-production on “Youth in Revolt,” starring Michael Cera, Justin Long, Zach Galifianakis, Ray Liotta and Steve Buscemi for Dimension and is developing “Naked” at Gold Circle and “Brother Sam” at HBO. He produced Lifetime’s “Prayers for Bobby,” which received an Emmy nom in the made-for-TV-movie category last week.

Jones is in post-production with Foundation Films on the documentary “Kevorkian,” about Dr. Jack Kevorkian’s bid for a congressional seat. He’s also developing HBO’s feature “You Don’t Know Jack,” centering on Kevorkian’s quest to legalize euthanasia, with Al Pacino starring and Barry Levinson directing.
