Scribe is currently adapting Neal Bascomb’s novel “The New Cool” for producer Scott Rudin, having recently adapted Richard Aleas’ pitch-black detective tale “Little Girl Lost” for Marc Platt Prods. at Universal. Bacall is also working with Red Hour Prods. to develop a comedy about Tom Cruise’s “Tropic Thunder” character Les Grossman for Paramount.

Bacall continues to be repped by attorney Jeff Shumway of Timaeus Group.
