Image queues up scribe Kuhn

Pic to be 'Jerry Maguire'-like dramedy, sources say

Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke’s DreamWorks-based Image Movers has inked a deal with scribe Robert Kuhn (“Mickey Blue Eyes”) to pen a script for mid-six against seven figures, with Luke Greenfield (“The Animal”) attached to direct.

Kuhn recently penned “Rule Number 3” at Fox 2000, with Harold Ramis attached to helm. He also wrote “The Cure.”

Sources are extremely tight-lipped about the project, saying only that it is a dramedy in the vein of “Jerry Maguire.”

“I have been looking for a long time for a writer like Robert Kuhn, and now I finally got him,” said Greenfield, whose directorial debut pic, “The Animal,” hits screens June 1 via Revolution Studios. “I am very excited to be collaborating with him.”

Greenfield added: “To be developing and directing this project and making it with one of my favorite filmmakers is a dream for me.”

Greenfield recently inked a deal to develop two projects with Revolution Studios.

Kuhn is repped by manager AMG and agent Marcie Wright of the Wright Concept. Greenfield is repped by AMG and Endeavor.
