Myriad and Matthau get ‘Freaky’

Duo to produce Elmore Leonard adaptation

Charles Matthau, son of the late Walter Matthau, will direct. Production begins in early 2011.

Myriad reps all foreign rights. Tom Ortenberg is repping U.S. distrib rights and exec producing through his One Way Out Media shingle.

Matthau and Myriad topper Kirk D’Amico are producing with Michael Meltzer and Judd Rubin.

“Freaky Deaky” chronicles the exploits of two former lovers who are extreme radicals with a talent for bomb making. After several years and prison terms apart, they reunite to steal millions from an accomplice. But they draw the attention of police and a bomb squad, especially one cop with bomb training of his own.

More than a dozen of Leonard’s books have adapted for the screen, including “Jackie Brown,” “Get Shorty” and “3:10 to Yuma.”
