SKE rolls with 'Old' script
EmptySidney Kimmel Entertainment has picked up "Old Timers," a spec script by playwright Noah Haidle.
The script follows two sixtysomething cons who have one final night to do everything they've wanted and reunite their gang before one of them meets his demise.
Haidle's latest play, "Saturn Returns," debuted last year at the Lincoln Center in New York, with Nicholas Martin directing. His other staged plays include "Mr. Marmalade," "Kitty Kitty Kitty" and "Persephone."
He is repped by UTA and Benderspink.
SKE is prepping the release of "Adventureland," Greg Mottola's coming-of-age movie starring Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart. Co-financed and co-produced with Miramax, the pic opens March 27.
The company's "Management," a romantic comedy directed by Stephen Belber and starring Jennifer Aniston, Steve Zahn and Woody Harrelson, opens May 15.
