'Ali' screenwriters sign with Gersh

Rivele, Wilkinson currently penning 'Jonestown' script

"Ali" screenwriters Stephen J. Rivele and Christopher Wilkinson have signed with Gersh. They previously were with CAA.

The writing pair is working on the screenplay for "Jonestown" for Overbrook Entertainment at Sony as well as "The Green Wave" (formerly "Mulkey") for director-producer Michael Tollin, ESPN and New Line.

Rivele and Wilkinson co-wrote the script for "Nixon," which earned them Oscar noms for original screenplay with director Oliver Stone. They also wrote "Copying Beethoven" and worked on the script for the forthcoming Columbia release "Moneyball."

The writers also are repped by attorney David Weber of Sloane Offer Weber & Dern.
