Honeymoon With Harry: According to The Hollywood Reporter, New Line Cinema has paid mid-six against low-seven figures for Honeymoon With Harry, an unpublished first novel by screenwriter Bart Baker.
The novel concerns a recovering self-destructive womanizer who loses his iancee in a car accident two days before their wedding and ends up going on his honeymoon with the fiancee's father, who detests him, so they can scatter her ashes.
The novel is described as a drama with extreme comedic elements.
"It's rare that you read a book that grips you from page one," Karz said. "It's also rare that by page 100 you are equally laughing and crying. It became quickly clear to all of us who read Bart's book that there's a powerful story here that can attract an equally powerful director, writer and cast."
