Director Curtis Hanson is in final negotiations to develop and direct Columbia Pictures Entertainment Inc.'s screen adaptation of Michael Faber's novel "The Crimson Petal and the White" for producer Laura Ziskin. The project is being developed as a starring debut for Kirsten Dunst, but no deal is in place with the actress. No writer has yet been reached to adapt the novel, but a scribe is expected shortly and will work closely with Hanson to develop the script.
