Jerry Bruckheimer -- Ready to Drop Million on Famous Hollywood Estate
EXCLUSIVEJerry Bruckheimeris thiiiiiiiiiis close to following in the footsteps of infamous studio tyrantHarry Cohn ... he's poised to drop million on Cohn's former Beverly Hills Estate.
TMZ has learned ... Bruckheimer recently made an offer to buy the 19,590-square-foot mansion -- but it's not quite a done deal yet.
As for the hold up ... the estate is currently being sold off by the trustee of Guess founderGeorges Marciano-- who lost the house as part of his Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.
We're told the bankruptcy judge already signed off on Bruckheimer's offer, but the deal won't be official until after a hearing -- set for Jan. 17th. During the hearing other prospective buyers can try and outbid Jerry.
As for the 7-bedroom, 9-bath crib ... it's a Hollywood legend. Built by Cohn waaay back in 1927, it sits on 2 acres, has a screening room, card room, billiards room, sunken tennis court, pool ... and of course ... the ghost of Old "King Cohn" wandering it's halls.
