Mazin inks to pen ‘Harvey’ update

Script is Pulitzer Prize-winning play adaptation

NEW YORK — Dimension Films has signed Craig Mazin to script its remake of “Harvey,” the company’s adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning Mary Chase play. The pic is a co-production with MGM.

The scribe recently adapted Philip K. Dick’s “Short Happy Life” for the studio. He also rewrote “Slackers” for Columbia, where he’s scripting a cooking comedy for producer Neal Moritz.

“Harvey” is the story of Elwood P. Dowd and his best pal, an invisible 6-foot rabbit. Tony-winning producer Don Gregory is producing the remake of the 1950 pic, which starred James Stewart.

“Everyone from Bob and Harvey Weinstein on down is committed to being as respectful as possible to the original Mary Chase play,” Mazin said in a statement. “We definitely see this as more of an update than a remake.”
