Variety reports that queer filmmaker Kimberly Peirce is in negotiations for a two-year, first-look deal at DreamWorks. The deal was offered by the studio's copresident of production, Michael De Luca, who made a similar deal at New Line with Peirce after Boys Don't Cry and hoped to bring her into the fold at his new studio once that original deal expired. In addition to the usual first-look terms, the deal would also include DreamWorks' covering costs for the director's New York-based production company, Peirce Pictures.
Peirce currently has a full plate, including two projects at DreamWorks as well as a John Dillinger project scripted by David Mamet and a screen adaptation of Arthur C. Clarke's Childhood's End. She is also developing her own script, Silent Star, which she plans to direct and coproduce with out American Beauty producers Bruce Cohen and Dan Jinks.
