Columbia, Winkler are ‘Perfect’ fit

'Kramer' scribe returns to themes of divorce

Columbia Pictures has acquired film rights to Avery Corman’s latest novel, “A Perfect Divorce,” for Irwin Winkler to produce.

Corman — whose “Kramer vs. Kramer” was turned into Col’s 1979 Oscar winner by helmer Robert Benton — again explores the hidden, corrosive effects of a seemingly amicable divorce on the son of well-meaning parents.

Winkler will produce with Winkler Films execs Rob Cowan and Charles Winkler, but he is not expected to helm “Divorce.”

Having helmed last year’s Cole Porter biopic “De-Lovely” for MGM, Winkler also was attached to helm the Mark Friedman-penned MGM comedy “Man on Third” — but its status remains unclear in light of the upcoming MGM merger with Sony.

Winkler is repped by CAA.
