Disney, Beacon jump for 'Joy'


By Chris Gardner

The Walt Disney Co. and Beacon Pictures have wrapped up Allison Burnett's spec script "Bundle of Joy" for mid- against high-six figures.

The logline of the project is being closely guarded; it's described only as a romantic comedy. At the Armyan Bernstein-helmed company, the project will be overseen by executives Jodi Zuckerman and Zanne Devine. At the studio, it's being shepherded by Karen Glass and Jill Morris.

 Burnett penned United Artists' "Autumn in New York," "Allegation" for Paramount Pictures and "Resurrecting the Champ" for Paramount and Phoenix Pictures. Last year, Broadway Books published his first tome, a novel titled "Christopher," which is being developed into a feature film by producer Sam Kitt. He is repped by Endeavor, manager Michael Sugar at Relativity/Machine and attorney Bill Skrzyniarz.

Hammering out the deal for Beacon were Michael Helfant and Greg Schenz.   Beacon's recent film projects include "Raising Helen" and the upcoming "Ladder 49," to be released in the fall from Disney. The company has a five-year overall co-financing and distribution arrangement with Disney/Buena Vista.
