D’Works enlists scribes

Levin, Flackett 'Enlisted' for studio's tale

DreamWorks Pictures has enlisted screenwriting team Mark Levin and Jennifer Flackett to fashion the love story “Enlisted” in a deal valued at high six figures against low seven figures.

Team recently scripted “Wimbledon” for Working Title/Universal Pictures, a pic that’s just headed into production with Richard Loncraine helming and Kirsten Dunst and Paul Bettany toplining.

“Enlisted” is based on an original idea from DreamWorks production exec Adam Goodman and centers on a forbidden romance in the Navy between a female officer and a non-commissioned seaman. In the Navy, the worlds of officer and enlisted man aren’t just culturally distinct, fraternization and romance are strictly forbidden.

Pic is being produced by Team Todd — the DreamWorks-based shingle of sisters Suzanne and Jennifer Todd, who most recently produced “Austin Powers in Goldmember” for New Line Cinema. Their development VP Julie Ragland will oversee its progress for Team Todd.

In writing a romance that, in the vein of Sydney Pollack’s “The Way We Were,” covers two decades, Levin and Flackett said they wouldn’t necessarily be drawing on their own romance, though they are married.

“We’re an odd beast, though” said Levin of his relationship with Flackett, who in true wifely fashion finished his sentence, adding, “We’re half-man, half-woman… we get both sides of it.”

Duo are repped in the deal by ICM.
