Fox 2000 Stacks "Garlic and Sapphires"



Fox 2000 is set to develop a film feature based on the memoir of food writer Ruth Reichl entitled "Garlic and Sapphires."

A seemingly promising book-based film project is being set up at Fox 2000. The company has been confirmed to develop "Garlic and Sapphires" based on food writer Ruth Reichl's memoir of the same title with Cary Brokaw's Avenue Pictures producing and Jeremy Leven penning the script.

Intended to be a romantic comedy which follows Reichl's evolution from chef to what she has become now, Brokaw described that the film's premise "has a great hook -- it's a columnist who has to don disguises so she won't be known, and is in one of those disguises when she meets the man she falls in love with."

"Garlic" initially was set up at HBO as a half-hour comedy series, but as it was put into turnaround it then got redeveloped as a feature and sold to Fox. It is said that the picture will also draw from Reichl's earlier memoir, "Comfort Me with Apples", while relying chiefly on tales from "Garlic and Sapphires."
