'Around the World' scribe to pen pic

TNT will team up with Dean Devlin’s Electric Entertainment to develop action-adventure telepic “The Librarian.”

Devlin will exec produce the project, to be penned by David Titcher (“Around the World in 80 Days”). Titcher will also take the title of co-producer. Electric head of development Marc Roskin will have producing duties on the film as well.

Story concerns a student who is thrown into a world he didn’t expect when he answers a classified ad to be the librarian at the New York Public Library, which turns out to be the repository of mankind’s most secret and valuable artifacts.

“The pitch was sharp and fun,” Michael Wright, senior veep of movies and minis for TNT, told Daily Variety. “This is an ambitious project for us, but Dean is a smart producer who delivers; his team is as good as any to take this leap into the world of special f/x with.”

Devlin hung the Electric shingle in May 2001. Company produced “Eight Legged Freaks.”
