LA-based production outfit Wind Dancer Films has purchased the romantic comedy pitch Forever And A Day by Robert Zappia through its development fund with Winchester Films. Zappia, who wrote the story and screenplay for Halloween H:20 will also write the screenplay. He first worked with Wind Dancer principals Matt Williams, David McFadzean and Carmen Finestra when they hired him on staff of their longrunning TV hit Home Improvement.
Wind Dancer will produce and Winchester will executive produce the film which is about a couple who learn to appreciate life together when they have a chance to live out their greatest fantasy.
The agreement was brokered for Zappia by Writers & Artists Agency and negotiated for Wind Dancer by the company's executive vice president Dete Meserve. The pitch was brought into Wind Dancer by senior vice president Melissa Goddard and director of development and production Roz Weisberg.
The production partnership between Wind Dancer and Winchester was signed in Nov 2000 and encompasses other projects including Daughter Of The Queen Of Sheba to which Gwyneth Paltrow and Meryl Streep are attached, The Yes Man written by Noah Hawley; Harv The Barbarian written by Finestra and Jack Handey and an untitled action project being written by Blake Masters.
