Davis reins in ‘Horsemen’

Davis Entertainment has purchased the spec script “Horsemen,” an action-drama about fighter pilots for hire, from first-time screenwriter Todd Slawsby in a deal worth a reported low-six-figure frontend against mid-six figures.

Davis, which has a first-look deal with Fox, has retained Slawsby to develop further drafts of the script.

The ensemble piece focuses on the battles in the sky over two fictitious warring African nations. During the fighting, a squadron commander suffers a crisis of conscience and comes to discover a sense of his own humanity, before finally realizing he’s fighting for more than money.

John Davis of Davis Entertainment is producing; Davis exec Wyck Godfrey brought the project in.

Slawsby is repped by United Talent Agency. He is managed by Warren Zide and Craig Perry.
