Bull’s Eye keyed to ‘Piano’

Co. proud to secure rights to 'intoxicating' novel

HOLLYWOOD — Bull’s Eye Entertainment has optioned Daniel Mason’s first novel, “The Piano Tuner.”

Bull’s Eye principals Bob Yari, Cathy Schulman and Tom Nunan will produce the pic, about a tuner of rare pianos in Victorian England. Commissioned to repair the instrument of an eccentric major, the piano tuner embarks on a journey of self-discovery deep into war-torn Burma.

“Tuner,” published by Knopf, was a hot property at the Frankfurt Book Fair in 2001. The author, then 25, sold “Tuner” and one other novel to Knopf for $1.2 million, earning several million more dollars in foreign deals.

“We are particularly proud to have secured the rights to such an intoxicating novel,” Schulman said. “The characters in the book are so intriguing and the landscapes so lyrical and rich that the groundwork is already laid for a wonderful feature film.”

Bull’s Eye was founded six months ago by producer-financier Bob Yari, Schulman, Nunan and Mark Curcio. Mason was repped by BWCS Carlisle. Production starts this summer on two Bull’s Eye films, “Employee of the Month” and “Thumbsucker.”
