WB buys ‘Prosecution’ pitch

Warner Bros. has picked up writer Mick Davis’ pitch “Beyond Prosecution,” about an everyman cop trying to find the truth about his wife’s murder.

The project was sold to the studio in the $350,000 to $450,000 range, with the scale sliding up to the $700,000 range as options are exercised and the project gets produced.

The project is about a cop who does not accept the story of his wife’s murder and sets out to avenge her death. Warner Bros. is eyeing the pitch as a project for Icon Prods.

Davis, a Scottish novelist, last year landed a deal at MGM for the pitch “Lucifer,” a thriller with comedic elements with Wesley Snipes attached to star. Davis also scripted a sequel to “9-1/2 Weeks.”

ICM’s Todd Feldman, Nick Reed and Doug MacLaren repped Davis along with attorney Don Steele.
