12 Jun 2012
Universal Pictures, Broadway producer Scott Rudin and Walter Mirisch are planning a film remake of "Same Time, Next Year," the 1978 romantic comedy based on Bernard Slade's play of the same name, according to Deadline.com.
Mark and Jay Duplass ("The Puffy Chair," "Cyrus") are in negotiations to write the script, which focuses on a man and woman—both married to others—who meet each other annually through several decades and personal changes.
Rudin is a producer of the 2012 Tony Award-winning revival of Death of a Salesman. His other Broadway projects include One Man, Two Guvnors; The House of Blue Leaves; Jerusalem; The Motherf**ker With the Hat; The Book of Mormon; Fences; and A Behanding in Spokane, among others.

Set in the magical world of La Belle Epoque Paris, where fashion, glamour, and passion prevail, Lerner and Loewe's celebrated musical is a romantic comedy about one young woman's journey to find her true self... and her true love.
