Dworet Inks Free Range Deal

Laurence Dworet, who penned the upcoming Dustin Hoffman-starrer “Outbreak,” signed a two-pic deal with Free Range Pictures, the Warner Bros, banner of Andy Meyer and Gil Friesen.

The first project is “Ultrasonic,” a high-tech thriller that will be produced and packaged by Free Range. The company will also handle the sale of the project.

The second is “Dead Giveaway,” a murder mystery set in the South and inspired by John Feegel’s book “Death Sails the Bay.” James Egan will co-produce and will also share a story credit. Free Range, which was formed last year, paid $500,000 from its own development fund for the project.

The Dworet deal is the first multi-pic deal with a writer for Free Range.

Dworet is already working on a screen adaptation of Norman Maclean’s “Young Men & Fire,” a project WB bought for Free Range.
