Exclusive: Permut Presentations and Grey Eagle Films will produce The War Of The Roses, The Children, an adaptation of the sequel novel by Warren Adler, whose original was the basis for the 1989 film in which director Danny DeVito tapped his Romancing The Stone cohorts Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner and pitted them in a divorce battle to the death. Here, the chandelier-shattering legacy of Barbara and Oliver Rose is passed down to their children, Josh and Evie, in a black comedy that focuses on ugly divorce from the vantage point of kids who fall victim to warring parents. Josh marries Victoria, only to see the marriage fall apart over an incident involving missing Milky Way bars; and Evie is a promiscuous over-eater carrying her own shrapnel. The result is deceit, violence and destruction. Permut will produce with Grey Eagle Films, Jonathan Adler and Stephen Greenwald. Chris Mangano will be exec producers. »
