Revolution sweeps up comedy itch ‘Girls’

'Women' scribes gets mid-six figures

HOLLYWOOD — Wasting no time in collecting content, Revolution Studios has beaten out several suitors, some offering more coin, for the comic pitch “Girls” by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa.

Gina Matthews at Roundtable Ink will produce. Project will be overseen by Revolution’s Todd Garner and Greg Silverman. Revolution ponied up a mid-six figure amount for the project.

In “Girls,” an awkward 13-year-old girl gets transported through time into the body of her 28-year-old self, and gets a look at what her life will be like if she grows up too fast.

Goldsmith and Yuspa most recently wrote the Mel Gibson and Helen Hunt pic “What Women Want” now at Paramount, which Matthews is also producing.

The feature scribes also serve as writers and supervising producers on the CBS comedy skein “King of Queens.”

Matthews just finished producing the Phoenix Pictures sequel to thriller “Urban Legend.” She will also begin production on skeins “Popular” for the WB and the new one-hour sci-fi comedy series “News From the Edge” for NBC as a mid-season series.

Scribes’ deal was negotiated by Bruce Kaufman and Justin Silvera at the Broder, Kurland, Webb, Uffner tenpercentery.
