WB/VR team snags pitch

Petrone's thriller pitch goes for high six-figures

The partnership between Village Roadshow and Warner Bros. has picked up an untitled thriller pitch from Michael Petrone for a high six-figure pricetag with Mark Canton attached to produce.

Plot details were sketchy on the pitch, but sources said Village Roadshow was high on earlier Petrone projects “A Course in Miracles,” which starts shooting in June for Touchstone Pictures, and “Til Human Voices Wake Us,” which won the best new script award from the Writers Guild of America. The latter project has Sandra Bullock attached to produce with Petrone directing, possibly at Warner Bros. as well.

John Goldstone, senior VP of the Canton Co., brought the project in.

Bruce Berman, who runs the Village Roadshow/Warners partnership, will oversee it.

Marty Bowen and Hayden Meyer of United Talent Agency brokered the deal for Petrone, along with manager Andrew Deane of Gold/Miller.
