Lopez, Apted eye ‘Enough’

Thriller follows woman's descent into domestic violence

HOLLYWOOD — Jennifer Lopez and Michael Apted are in negotiations to star in and helm, respectively, Nicholas Kazan’s spec, “Enough” at Columbia Pictures.

Apted most recently helmed the hit James Bond pic “The World Is Not Enough” for MGM, while Lopez toplined the New Line frightener “The Cell,” as well as the upcoming “Wedding Planner” for Intermedia, which Col will distrib domestically.

In “Enough,” Col is going once more to the suspenser well, grabbing elements from 1991’s “Sleeping With the Enemy” and the recent Par woman-in-distress pic “Double Jeopardy.”

Pic follows a newly married young woman’s descent into domestic violence. When her dream man becomes a mortal danger to her, she flees. Realizing he’ll never stop pursuing her, she begins martial-arts training in preparation for a final, deadly showdown.

Spec was acquired back in February by Col for nearly $1 million. Kazan (“Bicentennial Man”) is one of the writers encompassed by Sony Pictures’ unique writers pact, under which the studio grants certain screenwriters 2% participation in a picture’s gross receipts.

“Enough” is being produced by Sony-based Winkler Films’ Irwin Winkler and producing partner Rob Cowan, who are also both producing the Kevin Spacey starrer “The Shipping News” at Miramax Films.

Kazan is repped by Sanford/Gross Agency; Lopez is repped by ICM and managed by Handprint Entertainment; Apted is repped by CAA.
