Pair protect ‘Bodyguard’

Cooper, Weinstock to produce WWII drama

Bob Cooper’s Landscape Entertainment is teaming with Chuck Weinstock to produce WWII drama “Bodyguard of Lies,” based on the true story of double agent Juan Pujol.

Bill Wheeler (“The Hoax”) penned the script; Cooper and Landscape senior VP Orin Woinsky, who recently joined the shingle, have developed the project.

Pujol, who fabricated a network of nonexistent spies to deceive the Nazis, is credited with supplying false information that led German commanders to hold back troops from the area around the D-Day landings.

Cooper and Woinsky met in 2000 while the latter worked with producer Weinstock, who had a first-look deal with Landscape. Woinsky’s also been an exec at Artisan and National Lampoon.

Landscape is in post-production on “Mr. Woodcock” for New Line and “John Tucker Must Die” for Fox.
