An old news story:

Friday February 16 2:48 AM ET

NEW YORK (Variety) - Fox has given the green light to the black comedy ``The First 20 Million Is Always the Hardest,'' with Adam Garcia starring and Mick Jackson directing.

Garcia, the male lead in ``Coyote Ugly,'' just finished a lead role alongside Drew Barrymore in the Penny Marshall-directed ``Riding in Cars With Boys.''

The Fox film was adapted from the Po Bronson book by Jon Favreau. Set in Silicon Valley, it traces the roots of money and power in the computer industry.

Four misfit inventors think they've designed the computer of the future, only to find their design stolen by another inventor, who has the advantage of being well known. Garcia will play a marketing wiz. Shooting starts March 10.

Australian native Garcia has been ascending rapidly in Hollywood since playing the lead role in the West End run of ''Saturday Night Fever.'' Jackson recently directed ABC's acclaimed adaptation ``Tuesdays With Morrie.''
