PENELOPE SPHEERIS TO DIRECT 'THE BEVERLY HILLBILLIES' FOR FOX
 BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Sept. 30 /PRNewswire/ -- Penelope Spheeris will direct the big-screen version of the beloved television series "The Beverly Hillbillies" for Twentieth Century Fox, it was announced today by Roger Birnbaum, president, Worldwide Production. Spheeris, whose last film was the blockbuster comedy "Wayne's World," will direct from a screenplay by Larry Konner and Mark Rosenthal.
 Birnbaum commented: "'The Beverly Hillbillies' is one of the best-loved series in television history. At the height of its popularity it was seen in 60 million households a week, and it's currently still in syndication in 55 cities. The characters are widely known and well suited for translation to a motion picture, and Penelope Spheeris, who did that so well for the characters of 'Wayne's World,' is the perfect director to bring them to the big screen."
 "The Beverly Hillbillies" is scheduled to start production in January of 1993.
 Twentieth Century Fox is primarily engaged in the financing, development, production, distribution and marketing of motion pictures throughout the world and is a unit of Fox Inc.
