Anderson Prods. gets Foote’s ‘Man’ rights

Joins Anderson's slate of Eye web telepix

NEW YORK — Craig Anderson Prods. has acquired the rights to Horton Foote’s Pulitzer Prize-winning play “The Young Man From Atlanta” and will produce a two-hour telepic for the Eye web.

Foote, who grabbed Oscars for his screenplays “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Tender Mercies” and an Emmy for his adaptation of William Faulkner’s “Old Man,” is writing the teleplay, about a couple haunted by the death of their son.

Anita Waxman and David Richenthal, producers of the Broadway production, are co-producers on the telefilm, with Anderson exec producing in association with We3 Productions.

“Young Man” joins Anderson’s development slate for the CBS Sunday Night Movies, which includes “Songs in Ordinary Time” (Daily Variety April 13), “The Ballad of Lucy Whipple” (Daily Variety, March 31) and “Memory Slips” (Daily Variety, Jan. 29).

Anderson’s most recent CBS movies include the Barbara Hershey-starrer “The Staircase” and last season’s four-hour miniseries “True Women.”
