Untitled and unwritten, Klein’s pitch is dancing with the stars at Paramount

Paramount has preemptively bought a pich from “Serendipty” writer Marc Klein as a starring vehicle for Tom Cruise. 04-tom.jpg

“We believe Marc Klein has come up with an original and very moving love story,” Cruise/Wagner exec Don Granger told Daily Variety.

Throughout the pitch meeting, both Paramount and C/W Prods. executives were careful to observe Cruise’s body language: Early on, Cruise leapt over a couch and performed an Arabesque on one of Granger’s ottomans, signifying strong initial interest.

However, an insider familiar with the talks noted that it wasn’t until Cruise actually performed a fouette rond de jambe en tournant on producing partner Paula Wagner‘s credenza that all concerned knew the star was hooked. Only then could breathless ICM agents exhale and procede apace with a deal memo.

Shockingly enough, the logline is being kept under wraps.
