Producer David Foster has optioned two unproduced screenplays Fancy Hardware and Ghost of a Chance and a treatment After Paris by A.J. Carothers, the late writer responsible for TV's My Three Sons, and films Never a Dull Moment and The Secret of My Success.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Foster worked with Carothers on the projects decades ago and recently came across the scripts while cleaning out his office. Carothers died in 2007.
Fancy Hardware concerns a womanizing salesman in the 1930s. In 1972, Foster pulled together Steve McQueen, Ali MacGraw and director Alan J. Pakula to do the film for First Artists, but it fell apart.
The mystery romance Ghost of a Chance involves a young girl with a memorabilia shop who attends an old movie queen's auction, only to encounter the ghost of the woman's dead boyfriend. After Paris follows an American private eye in the City of Lights who is hired by a billionaire to tail his cheating wife.
No production date have been set.
