USA running ‘Marathon’

Miner pens, helms mystery thriller

USA Films is moving forward with “Marathon,” a mystery thriller written and to be directed by Michael Miner.

Pic will produced by the Pate Brothers (“Deceiver”) along with David Kanter at Anonymous; both shingles have first-look deals with USA.

USA’s Donna Gigliotti, president of production, and Ruth Pomeranz, executive veep of production and development, will oversee the project.

“Marathon” centers on a rag-tag group of petty criminals who team up to rob a bank during the Los Angeles marathon.

USA recently tapped Edward Neumeier to pen a polish of “Marathon.” The scribe collaborated with Miner on “Robocop.” Neumeier’s solo credits include “Starship Troopers.”

Miner recently directed the Tasca Shadix-penned “The Book of Stars,” starring Mary Stuart Masterson and Jena Malone.

Miner is managed by Anonymous. Neumeier is repped by UTA and managed by Anonymous.

Miner and Neumeier’s deals were negotiated by Linda Lichter at Lichter, Grossman, Nichols & Adler.
