Universal Pictures has agreed to pay a whopping $1.9 million for the screen rights to author Richard Price's upcoming crime thriller, "Clockers," sources said Friday. The Price deal, which includes a $300,000 bonus for screenwriting credit, raised eyebrows in industry circles, because Universal is said to be implementing a rigid austerity program under Chairman Tom Pollock next week.

The Scene: Sony Pictures Entertainment's cocktail party in honor of Mark Canton, the newly named chairman of Columbia Pictures. The gathering, which shut down Morton's on Friday night, was a schmooze fest of the highest order.

It was a crowd one guest described as "Hollywood adjacent" that made the American Civil Liberties Union Foundation's Torch of Liberty Awards dinner the most successful in the organization's history. By this, the guest meant that Monday's affair at the Regent Beverly Wilshire was populated less with actors and filmmakers than with lawyers, agents and music industry powers.

The story of an American college coach's attempt to recruit a taller-than-tall African basketball player, "The Air Up There" (citywide) may be the first movie to be high concept both literally and metaphorically. But that doesn't mean it's going to make anybody happy. A feeble and simplistic attempt at an adventure comedy, "Air" is a movie that never should have been let out of development hell.

Its population is estimated at 1.2 billion, but China only sounds like a large and powerful country. In fact this would-be colossus is no match at all for Richard Gere when he gets his dander up. Or so "Red Corner" would have you believe. Directed by Jon Avnet, no friend of subtlety, "Red Corner" is a sluggish and uninteresting melodrama that is further hampered by the delusion that it is saying Something Significant.
