Articulus, Par pics for busy scribe


Writer David Logan has two new gigs on his schedule.

Paramount has hired the British scribe to rewrite "Sebastian Knight," and Articulus Entertainment has brought Logan aboard to adapt the Ken Bruen novel "Once Were Cops."

"Knight" centers on a Bond-like CIA agent who has a one-night stand with a woman while on vacation in Monaco and then has to deal with her neurotic behavior as the smitten lady begins to stalk him.

John Goldwyn and Lorne Michaels are producing through their Michaels-Goldwyn banner. Dan Levine is shepherding for the studio and Hilary Marks for Michaels-Goldwyn.

The "Cops" project follows two unbalanced New York police officers cutting their way through the city's criminal underworld. Articulus principal Steven Sawalich will produce along with Gil Adler ("Superman Returns").

Logan, repped by WMA and Jewerl Ross, recently did a rewrite on "Hammer Down" for DreamWorks and has an original screenplay, "The Rip," in development with Universal and Working Title. (partialdiff)
