Ex-exec Tabak sells script to Fox

Matt Tabak, former veepee at Silver Pictures, has successfully traded in his executive stripes to become a screenwriter, having just sold a feature script to 20th Century Fox.

The project, “Love and Marriage,” is a romantic comedy about a husband who is forced to go to work for his wife.

Tabak has also been set to produce.

Fox officials could not be reached for comment.

This marks one of several projects that Tabak has written, including an assignment for former boss Joel Silver, an erotic thriller titled “Trick.”

He also did a rewrite on “Beyond a Reasonable Doubt” for Island World.

Tabak also just wrapped a directing stint for the Chanticleer Discovery Program, a short that he wrote titled “The Investigator” starring Vincent D’Onofrio.

Before his two years at Silver Pictures, Tabak had been director of development at Simpson/Bruckheimer and was previously a creative exec at Touchstone. His deal at Fox was handled by Carlos Goodman, an attorney with the firm of Lichter, Grossman & Nichols.
