Zeta-Jones in Warners' 'Ivy' league

Catherine Zeta-Jones and her "Ocean's Twelve" producer Jerry Weintraub are reteaming on a new dramedy, "The Ivy Chronicles," for Warner Bros. Pictures.

Based on a novel by author Karen Quinn, "Ivy" centers on a former highflying Wall Street woman who, after losing her job and finding her husband in bed with the wife of her replacement, establishes a kindergarten referral service for well-heeled Manhattanites vying to get their tots into the country's choice schools.

Quinn's novel will be published in February by Viking Books.

Zeta-Jones will star in the film adaptation, which Weintraub is producing. Jessica Goodman is overseeing for the studio.

Zeta-Jones has recently been at work on "The Mask of Zorro" sequel, "Legend of Zorro," as well as "Ocean's Twelve." Other projects she has in the pipeline include "Smoke & Mirrors," from director Mimi Leder, and "Coming Out," a rugby feature set in Zeta-Jones' native Wales.

Weintraub's other projects include the remake of "Oh, God!" to star Ellen DeGeneres; a new installment of "Police Academy"; and "Ancient History," written by Darren Lemke.

Zeta-Jones is repped by CAA.
