Project, to be helmed by Jodie Foster, is slated to begin lensing in mid-September in New York.
Anonymous Content’s Steve Golin and Keith Redmon produce.
“We bought the project because it’s told in one of the most unique voices ever,” said Erik Feig, Summit’s president of worldwide production and acquisitions.
Foster came on to the project first and brought it to Gibson, with whom she co-starred in 1994’s “Maverick.”
Summit plans for a fourth quarter 2010 or early 2011 release. It will also have rights in most foreign markets.
