Taking a ‘Knight’ flight

Scott laffer being produced by Par-based SNL Studios

Seann William Scott is in negotiations to star in Paramount’s “Sebastian Knight.”

Pic, penned by Steve Koren, is being produced by Lorne Michaels’ Par-based SNL Studios.

Romantic comedy centers around a neurotic woman addicted to self-help who has a one-night stand with a guy only to find out he is a CIA agent who hooked up with her to get himself out of a jam.

As yet no director has been hired for pic and no female lead hired.

Scott most recently starred in “American Wedding” and Universal’s “The Rundown,” starring Dwayne “the Rock” Johnson, now on release.
