A film about the life of Sean Flynn, the photographer son of the late film idol ERROLL FLYNN, is being developed and will go into production early next year in Thailand and Cambodia.

It is being produced by SAM WATERSTON who will also star as Flynn, a combat photographer during the Vietnam war who disappeared one day after setting off for the front line on a motorcycle and was never seen again.


fresh from his success as host of the Oscars show, is now concentrating on directing his first film, a baseball story called 61. He was originally only going to produce but as the script developed he decided he wanted to direct the very personal story which he co...wrote about his friendship with the late baseball star MICKEY MANTLE. He is currently looking for a baseball-playing actor to star as Mantle.

A script for a film based on the lives of JOHN LENNON and YOKO ONO is currently being read by Ono, who has been offered a producer's role on the project by Columbia Pictures. Ono's spokesman Elliot Mintz says she will spend the weekend reading it.

"There's no film without her approval and if and when she does approve it, all things are possible,'' said Mintz. The film will delve deeply into John and Yoko's relationship and their tumultuous times in the spotlight, but does not deal with John's life as a Beatle, according to sources who have read it.


and JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT have been spending much of their spare time together to prepare for their roles as mother and daughter confidence tricksters in Breakers. "The chemistry between them is vitally important,'' says writer...director David Mirkin, who begins filming next month. He describes Breakers as "a subversive, dark comedy'' about two women who seduce men to obtain their money. "The mother teaches the daughter how to do this and they're very, very clever about it,'' he says.


successful track record with family films helped him beat out ALAN PARKER and TERRY GILLIAM for the job of directing the first Harry Potter film. Some of the world's top directors had been vying for the job ever since STEVEN SPIELBERG turned the project down after toying with it for months.

Sources at Warner Bros studio say that although Columbus's most recent film, Bicentennial Man, was a flop despite its star ROBIN WILLIAMS, hits like Home Alone, Mrs Doubtfire and Stepmom persuaded executives that Columbus was the man to bring Harry Potter to the screen.

After an absence of 15 years, Oscar-winner GEENA DAVIS is returning to television as the star of a new comedy series, Lost and Found. She will play a single New York party planner who falls for a suburban widower with two children and is forced to change her lifestyle. Davis's last stint on television was in 1985 when she starred as a lawyer in the short-lived comedy series Sara.
