Par catches Kattan

Thesp, 'SNL' scribe ink for De Line feature

NEW YORK — Thesp Chris Kattan and “Saturday Night Live” scribe Scott Wainio have entered into a development deal with Paramount-based producer Donald De Line and Paramount Pictures to write an untitled comedy as a starring vehicle for Kattan.

Pic, to be produced by De Line, centers on a man (Kattan) who is being driven crazy by his wife. When he learns she is doing this on purpose, he pretends to be really crazy as a way of catching her at her own game.

Kattan will next be seen in the title role of “Corky Romano,” to be released by Disney on Oct. 12. He also appears in Universal’s “Undercover Brother,” due out from U next summer.

De Line currently is in post-production on “Domestic Disturbance,” starring John Travolta, Vince Vaughn and Steve Buscemi, helmed by Harold Becker.

In the coming months he expects to put into production “Girl in the Curl” by “Legally Blonde” scribes Karen Lutz and Kirsten Smith, rewritten by “Toy Story” scribes Joel Cohen and Alec Sokolow.

Also set up at his shingle is Larry Levin’s script “Let’s Make Friends”; “The Italian Job,” being penned by Donna and Wayne Powers; and the untitled Scotsboro Trial project, which Lem Dobbs (“The Score”) is writing.
