Davis sells ‘Romance’

Tale of girl paid to pose as billionaire's girlfriend

Fox-based Davis Entertainment, which in recent days has set up a string of projects at its home studio, sold B.E. Brauner and James Iver Mattson’s spec script “My Romance” to Fox 2000.

Described as a romantic comedy in the vein of “Pretty Woman,” “My Romance” concerns a young woman who is paid to pose as the girlfriend of a famous billionaire.

Davis prexy Teddy Zee and VP of creative affairs Stacy Kolker brought the script to Fox 2000 production VP Ashley Kramer. On Friday, the studio optioned the project against a mid-six figure production bonus.

“My Romance” is Brauner and Mattson’s sophomore effort. In 1996, the pair sold the spec “Fluffy” to Hollywood Pictures. Before turning to screenwriting, Mattson was an animated series writer, and Brauner was a librarian.

The scribes were repped in the deal by agents Melissa Brockish and Fretta Rose at Montero Rose.

Davis’ recent sales to Fox have included “Something Wicked” by the company’s own Anya Kochoff; “Homecoming: The Revenge,” by Ken Rance and Dallas Jackson; and comic book adaptation “Nightshade” by Rikki Rocket and Mark Williams.
