Silver, who has an overall deal at Warners, will get his usual producer’s fee of $750,000 to $1 million. Werb has scripted several action films for Cannon as well as the gangster script “Machine Gun Kelly,” slated to go into production at Columbia. While Colleary has no produced feature credits, he has a couple of projects in development at MGM/Pathe.
