Atlantic sets ‘Famine’ feast

Bickford to produce, Komarnicki to adapt, helm

Production and financing outfit Atlantic Streamline has acquired feature rights to the novel “Famine,” with Laura Bickford (“Traffic”) attached to produce and author Todd Komarnicki set to adapt and direct the dramatic thriller.

Published by Arcade Publishing in January 1997, “Famine” is the story of a homicide detective who discovers the corpse of a young man who appears to have starved himself to death. As the cop investigates, his own past begins to intertwine with the victim’s. Atlantic Streamline CEO Marco Weber and exec VP Vanessa Coifman will produce with Bickford.

Currently preparing to make his directorial debut with “Resistance,” based on his own screenplay, Komarnicki is also a joint partner with Jon Berg in the production/management company Guy Walks Into a Bar. Komarnicki most recently wrote “Professor and the Madman” for Icon, as well “Judas” with HIS/Tomorrow Films producing. He’s repped by UTA.

Atlantic Streamline is currently in post on “Igby Goes Down,” which stars Susan Sarandon, Claire Danes and Ryan Phillippe and will be distributed domestically by MGM.

Company has also completed “All the Queen’s Men,” which stars Matt LeBlanc and Eddie Izzard.
