Kaufman, Jonze give Col Creeps

ike Jonze and Charlie Kaufman are adapting their "Adaptation" talents to the horror genre for Columbia Pictures. Deals are being worked out for the duo to collaborate on an untitled horror film for the studio that Kaufman is writing, with Jonze set to direct. Details of the project are being closely guarded. The deal is a coup for Columbia, which produced the duo's last effort, "Adaptation." That film became a critical darling on the 2003 awards season circuit, nabbing four Oscar nominations and a supporting actor win for Chris Cooper. "Adaptation," which dramatized a screenwriter's struggle adapting a nonfiction book, also won a slew of other awards, including two Golden Globes and honors from the British Academy of Film and Television Arts, Broadcast Film Critics, Los Angeles Film Critics, New York Film Critics and National Board of Review. Jonze and Kaufman will produce the horror project, with Columbia executive vp production Amy Baer overseeing on behalf of the studio. Jonze is repped by CAA. Kaufman is repped by UTA. (Chris Gardne
