NEW YORK — Revolution Studios has paid mid-six figures in rights and scripting fees to make a film based on “Single-Gal Heaven,” a recent Elle magazine article about a reporter who dates five dot-com millionaires in five days.
The film will be produced by Team Todd, the partnership between “Austin Powers” producers Suzanne and Jennifer Todd. Pic will be scripted by Jessica Bendinger, who wrote the upcoming Beacon/Universal film “Bring It On,” which was formerly called “Cheer Fever.”
In the article which appeared in the May issue of Elle, journo Deanna Kizis found that, with one exception, these seemingly great catches were actually self-absorbed, lonely guys who spent all their time working and had a taste for superficial and glitzy things.
The film was set up by Revolution’s Todd Garner. The Todds, who most recently produced “Boiler Room,” were repped by Kevin Yorn and Deborah Klein of Barnes, Morris, Klein and Yorn. Bendinger and Kizis are repped by William Morris.
