Winick big on Revolution's '13'
Tadpole helmer Gary Winick is in negotiations to direct Golden Globe-winning Alias star Jennifer Garner in Revolution Studios' comedy 13 Going on 30. Production is being geared to start early next year while Garner is on hiatus from her ABC series, now in its sophomore season. Written by Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa, 13 is described as a female Big. It follows a 13-year-old girl who dreams of being popular. During her birthday party, she engages in the party game Seven Minutes in the Closet. The game turns out to be a humiliating experience for her, and she refuses to come out of the closet. When she eventually does emerge, she finds herself five days shy of her 30th birthday. Susan Arnold and Donna Arkoff Roth are producing the project with the writers' manager, Gina Matthews. Winick is repped by Endeavor. For his recently released Tadpole, starring Sigourney Weaver, Bebe Neuwirth and Aaron Stanford, Winick won best director honors at the 2002 Sundance Film Festival. His other credits include Sam the Man and Sweet Nothing.
