Stiller’s Red Hour tills ‘Green Acres’

“Green Acres” is going through some developmental tilling, as Ben Stiller’s Red Hour Prods. has gone rural and is now attached to produce the Fox Family Films’ feature version of the vintage TV sitcom.

Stiller and Red Hour’s George Linardos join David Permut as producers of the pic, which Stiller might direct, pending a new script.

According to sources close to the project, with Stiller on board, Bette Midler and Bonnie Bruckheimer’s All Girl Prods. are no longer attached to produce. And Fox confirmed that Midler, who was attached to star, has dropped out of the project.

Hoping to take the film in a more irreverent direction, sources said the producers are now looking for a new writer for the project, that has an original draft by E. Jack Kaplan and Richard Chapman (“My Fellow Americans”).
