New Line, Bergman update ‘Love’ story

Scribe's credits include 'Fletch', 'Honeymoon in Vegas'

Andrew Bergman will write a modern-day adaptation of the 1940 comedy “I Love You Again” for New Line Cinema.

Story concerns a dull businessman who suffers a blow to the head, snapping him out of a heretofore-undiagnosed nine-year amnesiac haze and revealing his true persona as a charming swindler.

Original pic, an MGM production adapted from a novel by Octavus Roy Cohen, starred “The Thin Man” duo William Powell and Myrna Loy.

Jerry Leider, Sara Risher and Richard Waltzer will produce the film. New Line senior VP Mark Kaufman, VP Matt Moore and creative exec Luke Ryan oversee the project for the studio.

Bergman’s credits include “Fletch” and “Honeymoon in Vegas.” He penned the 2003 remake of “The In-Laws” that starred Michael Douglas and Albert Brooks.
