Charlie Matthau Gets “Freaky Deaky”

Charlie Matthau (“The Grass Harp,” “Her Minor Thing”) has adapted the screenplay and is set to direct a film version of Elmore Leonard’s “Freaky Deaky” for Future Films and Blackwood Entertainment Group reports Variety.

“Freaky Deaky” tells the story of two former 1960s radicals who decide to “go straight” using their bomb-making skills to become capitalists in the go-go world of 1974 Los Angeles.

Shooting kicks off in January with Michael Meltzer producing. Previous Leonard film adaptations include “Out of Sight,” “Get Shorty” and “Jackie Brown”.
