Steve Martin Goes From Zero to Sixty

ON

Paramount Pictures has acquired From Zero to Sixty, a Steve Martin pitch for a comedy that will reteam him with Father of the Bride co-star Diane Keaton. Robert Simonds will produce, says Variety.

Martin and Keaton would play a couple in the comedy.

Paramount could put the film into production this fall if a writer is drafted quickly.

Simonds is the producer of the “Pink Panther” series, and he and Martin just wrapped the Harald Zwart-directed Pink Panther 2, which will be released in February. They have already begun talking with writers about Pink Panther 3.
