In this latest version of Mark Twain’s legendary characters, however, the trio are now hot and in their late 20s. Peter Chernin and Dylan Clark are producing, with Matt Lopez and Liz Raposo is the executive in charge at Paramount. The studio bought Burg’s supernatural action script Hellified a few years back. Recently Paramount purchased Enzo Mileti and Scott Wilson spec, Swindle, starring Megan Fox and Zoe Saldana. The actresses will also produce that project with Moneyball producer Michael De Luca. Andy Burg is managed by Brucks Entertainment. Burg and Lopez are represented by ICM.
