Pfeiffer ‘Gone’ for Beacon’s good

Pic searching for male lead, director

Michelle Pfeiffer is attached to star in “She’s Gone” for Disney-based production shingle Beacon.

Script, penned by Beacon’s chairman and CEO Armyan Bernstein, is a sophisticated romantic comedy about a couple who have been married since they were high school sweethearts. When the husband decides after 20 years that he wants to end the relationship without hurting his wife, he decides the only way to do so is to hire someone she can fall in love with.

However, when his plan is successful and his hire ends up stealing his wife’s heart the husband has second thoughts and the wife has to chose whom, if either, she wants to end up with.

Pic is being produced by Bernstein and Marc Johnson and financed through Beacon’s five-year co-financing, production and distribution deal with Disney.

Producers are out to directors with an anticipated fall start date.

Pic, which has also yet to secure a male lead is expected to be one of the first projects produced under the Beacon deal inked at the end of last year (Daily Variety, Dec. 12).

Bernstein previously penned “One From the Heart” and “The Hurricane,” among other screenplays. He most recently exec produced the Kevin Costner Western “Open Range,” and the Kevin Kline starrer “The Emperor’s Club” for Universal.

Pfeiffer, who is repped by ICM, most recently starred in “White Oleander” and “I Am Sam,” as well as voicing the character of Eris in DreamWorks upcoming animated release “Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas.”
