Miramax Gets A Man Under

Miramax Films is set to produce the darkly comic drama “Man Under” reports the trades.

The “American Beauty”-esque story, from scribe Ann Cherkis (“The Secret”), revolves around the drab, depressed and dysfunctional members of a suburban family.

A young photographer who takes their family portrait is murdered and the photo makes its way to her high-profile museum retrospective, thrusting them into the spotlight of a trendy art scene and changing their lives dramatically.

Scott Rudin, Alexandra Milchan and Aimee Peyronnet will produce.
