David inks Castle Rock feature deal

Larry David, creator and exec producer of “Seinfeld” the past six years, has inked a deal with Castle Rock Entertainment to write and direct his own untitled feature comedy, the company confirmed Monday.

David already has completed a script, but refuses to give out details of the project or its plot. However, Castle Rock already has circulated it to some stars, including Michael Keaton and Alec Baldwin.

Laurie Lennard is set to produce. Castle Rock insiders said the pic likely would go before cameras in the spring.

The project would mark David’s first feature as a director. As a scribe, he has been developing a script called “Prognosis Negative” for Castle Rock the past two years.

Gavin Polone of Hofflund//Polone reps David. Attorney Melanie Cook of Bloom, Hergott, brokered the deal.

Castle Rock Television, which produced “Seinfeld,” has enjoyed an eight-year relationship with David because of the profitable series. David and comic Jerry Seinfeld created the skein in 1989 with David as a scribe and co-producer. By 1991, he was exec producing.

During the run, David and Seinfeld were courted by studios for feature projects. But both eschewed the theatrical lure to concentrate on building “Seinfeld” into a syndication powerhouse. The series ultimately sold in syndication for about $3 million an episode.

Before “Seinfeld,” David was a scribe for TV’s “Max Headroom” and “Fridays.”
