Hutton nears ‘General’s’ delivery

Thesp to join Travolta, Stefanson in military murder mystery

Timothy Hutton and Leslie Stefanson are marching toward roles in Paramount’s John Travolta starrer “The General’s Daughter.”

Hutton is in talks to play Col. William Kent, a close friend of the base commander’s daughter who is found raped and murdered. Stefanson has enlisted for the title role, Lt. Ann Campbell, whose troubled life, presented in flashbacks, eventually reveals the circumstances of her death.

Travolta is a military investigator charged with looking into the case.

The film, directed by Simon West, is based on Nelson DeMille’s novel of the same name. Mace Neufeld and Jonathan Krane are producing.

Hutton’s recent roles include “City of Industry” and “Playing God.” He also directed the indie pic “Digging to China” starring Kevin Bacon.

Stefanson’s credits include supporting roles in “Flubber,” “Burn, Hollywood, Burn” and “As Good as It Gets.”

Hutton was repped in the deal by CAA and manager Judy Hofflund. Stefanson was repped by Paradigm’s Sandi Dudek and manager Julie Yorn.
