Based on a novel by Peter Lecourt, The Deal was directed by Steven Schachter, who also wrote the screenplay with Macy. The film has the following synopsis: A down-and-out film producer agrees to make his nephew’s film about 19th century English statesman Benjamin Disraeli, but can only get financing if he casts a well-known action star. Production is halted however, when the lead actor is kidnapped, so the producer hatches a scheme with a struggling creative executive to save the star and the movie.
