Runaway teams for ‘Drummond’

'Potter' producer Barron pairs with Fork Films on pic

“Harry Potter” producer David Barron’s Runaway Fridge Films is joining forces with Pria Viswalingam’s Australia-based Fork Films to develop and co-produce a big-budget version of “Bulldog Drummond.”

Pic will be based on the British action hero created by Sapper, the pseudonym of author Herman Cyril McNeile, in 1920.

Phil Rymer, of Rymer Media Law, will exec produce the film, which will be based on a story by John Collee and Dennis Kleinman.

Production partners are in the throes of attaching a screenwriter while Stevie Lee is handling development for U.K.-based Runaway Fridge Films.

Bulldog Drummond, a WWI veteran bored with civilian life, was one of the most popular literary characters of the 1920s and influenced the creation of James Bond due to his “Brit gent” demeanor and his adventures as a private detective. More than 20 films centering around Drummond were made between 1922 and 1969.
