Williams, H’wood slide into ‘First’

Prod'n company lays out seven figures for West book

In a seven-figure deal, Hollywood Pictures has bought Cameron West’s nonfiction book “First Person Plural” for Robin Williams and his wife Marsha Garces Williams to produce under their Blue Wolf banner, with the actor to possibly topline.

Book is an account of a male multiple personality with a love story at its center. West will receive publishing bonuses as part of the deal. The book is due out next spring from Hyperion.

Jordi Ros, senior VP of production at Touchstone Pictures, brought the project into the studio. David Vogel, prexy of Hollywood/Disney Pictures, oversaw the final deal.

Blue Wolf exec Barry Sabath brought the project into the company and will oversee it with the Williams.

Steve Fisher of Renaissance Agency brokered the deal for West on behalf of the Linda Chester Literary Agency, which handled the book sale to Hyperion.

The book’s sale marks the second major deal in the last week for the Chester firm, which repped Wally Lamb’s upcoming novel “I Know This Much Is True” in its sale to Fox.
