"Battery Park" scribe and producer Jane O'Brien is poised to write for New Line Cinema's adaptation of Eileen Cook's comic novel "In the Stars."
Answering the calling for the big screen, TV writer/producer Jane O'Brien has given her agreement to pen the script of New Line Cinema's "In the Stars", The Hollywood Reporter has revealed.
An adaptation of Eileen Cook's novel of the same name, the comedy focuses on a woman dumped by her boyfriend who poses as a psychic to give his new girlfriend a fake reading designed to break them up. As her readings unexpectedly do a lot more than she could have predicted, the woman finds herself caught up in rising stardom and in need to figure out where the answers to her own life questions lie.
Still no word yet on who to direct and star, but it is informed that J.C. Spink, Mason Novick, and Chris Bender are all onboard to produce for New Line. Last joining forces in Wes Craven's 2005 thriller "Red Eye", the three are also attached to work together in two other upcoming titles of "Razorwire" and "Burt Dickenson, Most Powerful Magician on the Planet Earth."
