Scott writes up triple play

Scribe sells original pitch, two rewrite pacts

Scribe Don Scott has closed a trio of deals: One, with Tapestry Films, is for original pitch “Team Fabulous,” for which he will be paid a six-figure sum.

Other two deals are rewrite pacts. Scott will do a production rewrite on “Barber Shop,” a Mark Brown script set up at MGM with Brown, Bob Teitel and George Tillman (“Soul Food”) producing. That project will be exec produced by Larry Kennar with vid helmer Tim Story on board to direct.

He also will rewrite Gary Hardwick script “Sons of the Hammer,” set up at Beacon Pictures. That project is slated for a post-strike start.

Tapestry dipped into its discretionary fund to snag “Team Fabulous,” a project developed by Scott’s management firm, Principato-Young. Warner Bros.-based Alcon Entertainment will co-finance the pic with Tapestry.

“Team” centers on a baseball player who makes a series of seemingly homophobic remarks that get broadcast out of context by a sports journalist. He then beats up the reporter for misrepresenting him and is sentenced to do community service by playing in a philanthropic gay softball league.

Project was brought into Tapestry by Andrew Panay, who will serve in a producing capacity. Jonathan Komack Martin also will receive a producing credit. Tapestry partners Peter Abrams and Robert Levy will produce.
