LOS ANGELES, Aug. 20 (UPI) -- Twentieth Century Fox is close to a deal with F. Scott Fitzgerald's estate to remake "Tender Is the Night," Daily Variety reported Friday.

The studio first adapted the novel for the screen in 1962, with Jason Robards starring as a psychiatrist whose life is ruined when he marries one of his clients, played by Jennifer Jones. Fitzgerald's jazz-age story was adapted for a 1985 TV miniseries starring Peter Strauss and Mary Steenburgen.

Variety said Fox has hired screenwriter Jesse Wigutow to write the adaptation. Wigutow wrote "It Runs in the Family," the 2003 comedy starring Michael Douglas and Kirk Douglas in the story of a dysfunctional family trying to reconcile.
