Disney’s ‘Deja’ viewing Scott

Bruckheimer prod'n will start shooting in summer or fall

Disney Studios is in negotiations with Tony Scott to helm romantic thriller “Deja Vu” for Jerry Bruckheimer Films.

Story concerns an FBI agent who travels back in time and falls in love with a woman doomed to be murdered.

Mike Stenson and Chad Oman brought the project in to Bruckheimer Films. Mouse House bought the spec script by Terry Rossio and Bill Marsilii last year for several million dollars (Daily Variety, June 7).

Jerry Bruckheimer is producing. Rossio and his “Shrek” and “Pirates of the Caribbean” writing partner Ted Elliott will exec produce the pic with Jerry Bruckheimer Films’ Mike Stenson and Chad Oman.

Scott and Bruckheimer have a long history, going back to such Simpson-Bruckheimer pics as “Top Gun” and “Days of Thunder.” Helmer also made “Crimson Tide” and “Enemy of the State” for the Bruckheimer shingle.

Nina Jacobson and Jason Reed are overseeing the project for Disney.

Bruckheimer hopes to start shooting in summer or fall.
