U gives ‘Simon’ the Dickens

Harold Becker (“Sea of Love,” “City Hall”) is directing from a script by Lawrence Konner and Mark Rosenthal. Pic is based on a novel by Ryne Douglas Pearsen.

Dickens’ credits include “Zero Effect,” last month’s “Truth or Consequences, N.M.” and the upcoming “Great Expectations.”

Her deal was brokered by Stephen Hirsh of the Gersh Agency.
