Scribes pitch ‘Pimp’ to Par

Producer Latham, actor Chan attached to writers' projects

Paramount is finalizing the buy of a comedy feature pitch from screenwriter Bradley Allenstein (“Juwanna Mann,” “The Bellboy”) and tyro scribe Robert Henny about the rise and fall of a white rapper who thinks he’s black.

Pic has a working title of “Pimp Pasty” and will be produced Walter Latham (“Kings of Comedy”) of Latham Entertainment.

Allenstein and Henny, to be paid mid-six against high-six figures, will work on a “Pimp Pasty” script immediately upon Allenstein’s completing writing chores for MGM’s updating of “The Bellboy,” which has Jackie Chan attached to star.

Morgan Creek’s “Juwanna Mann,” which Allenstein co-wrote with Mark Brown, is currently shooting in Charlotte, N.C., and stars Miguel Nunez, Vivica A. Fox, Kevin Pollak and Tommy Davidson.

Allenstein, Henny and Latham all are repped by the William Morris Agency. Attorney John LaViolette was also involved in representing Allenstein and Henny, and Allenstein is managed by Field Entertainment.
