Pic marks Bomback’s first sale to a studio. He had generated major interest in a spec version of “The Mayor of Casterbridge” that he penned.

He also recently inked a writing deal with 20th Century Fox for a piece about a mutiny in outer space for producer Arnold Kopelson.

“Fix” is a film noir project about a homeless man who is implanted with a drug that gives him an incredible drive to succeed. After taking the drug, he wins back his wife and kids and his job as an architect, but then the drug goes into overdrive.

Chris Buchanan and John Tomko of Jerry Weintraub Prods. brought the project to the company.

Bomback’s deal was brokered by Adam Shulman of Agency for the Performing Arts.
