Handprint Entertainment has signed a two-year, first-look deal with 20th Century Fox. The company was recently formed by producer/managers James Lassiter and Benny Medina and writer/director Jeff Pollack.
The company’s first project is one of two currently in development: “Creole,” an action thriller starring Jada Pinkett (Daily Variety, June 6) and “Brushback,” a script by Eric Daniels about a self-centered modern-day baseball player who gets hit in the head by a pitch and wakes up in the Negro Leagues.
Handprint’s management clients include Will Smith, Pinkett, Babyface and Vivica A. Fox.
