Weinsteins 'Got' all rights to book


The Weinstein Co. has acquired worldwide publishing, film and television rights to Bridie Clark's new novel "I Think She's Got It."

Billed as a modern-day retelling of "Pygmalion," the Manhattan-set novel centers on a shy Midwesterner who is transformed into a sophisticated socialite by a man-about-town who insists he can turn anyone into the latest "it" girl.

Weinstein Books will publish the novel in 2009, with the Weinstein Co. planning to develop and produce it for film and TV.

Clark — a former book and magazine editor — this year published the novel "Because She Can," the story of a beleaguered young book editor working for a notoriously tyrannical female publisher, said to have been loosely based on former Regan Books editor Judith Regan.

Weinstein Books president and CEO Rob Weisbach negotiated the deal with the Levine Greenberg Agency's Daniel Greenberg on behalf of the author.
