Goldwyn helms ‘Nathan’ for U

Pic would mark soph director outing for thesp

Actor-director Tony Goldwyn is negotiating to take the helm of “Imagining Nathan” for Universal Pictures, the studio confirmed.

Pic would mark Goldwyn’s sophomore outing as a director, following “The Blouse Man,” the first title to emerge from the partnership between Dustin Hoffman’s Punch Prods. and Village Roadshow.

Goldwyn is best known in front of the camera for roles in “Ghost,” “The Pelican Brief” and “Kiss the Girls.” In March, Miramax Films picked up the U.S. and multiple international rights to “The Blouse Man,” which stars Diane Lane and Viggo Mortensen.

“Imagining Nathan” originally was acquired by U as a directing vehicle for Jerry Zucker, who subsequently opted for another project. Zucker will produce with Michael Manheim and Gil Netter.

Scripted by then first-time writer Gustin Parker, the story is about a girl and a boy who, after their parents are murdered, are separated to be raised by different families. The boy, extremely precocious and creative, is traumatized by the incident and becomes introverted, developing a uniquely imaginative world view.

Goldwyn is repped by CAA.
