Reiner, Greisman to partner on production

HOLLYWOOD — Rob Reiner and producer Alan Greisman have formed a producing partnership that will be based at Reiner’s Castle Rock Entertainment.

First project under the deal is an untitled romantic comedy by Jeremy Leven (“The Legend of Bagger Vance”) to be directed by Reiner. Script concerns a writer who hires a beautiful stenographer to transcribe his work. As she takes down his story, the two fall in love and he is forced to come to terms with his own life as an artist.

The film will be produced by Reiner, Greisman and Todd Black of Escape Artists and exec produced by Peter Guber, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch.

Greisman told Daily Variety that the new partnership will represent more of a straightforward filmmaking partnership for Reiner, a co-founder of Castle Rock.

“We share mutual interests and the same sensibilities,” Greisman said. “It seemed like a natural outgrowth of our friendship and in wanting to make the same kinds of movies.”

Under the partnership, Greisman will produce Reiner-directed films and the two will jointly produce pictures that Reiner will not direct.

“It’s nice at this stage in my career to find someone who so closely shares my sensibilities,” said Reiner in a statement.

Greisman, a former president of Spelling Entertainment, Rastar Prods. and Savoy Pictures, produced films such as “Fletch,” “Fletch Lives,” “Soapdish” and Miramax Films’ upcoming “Texas Rangers.”
