Fox 2000 finds ‘Solace’

HorsePower trots away with six-fig deal for thriller

Fox 2000 has paid a six-figure sum to HorsePower Entertainment and writers Ted Griffin and Sean Bailey for the thriller “Solace.” The pic, described as a gritty tale revolving around a doctor who becomes involved with a bizarre series of deaths in Manhattan, will be produced by HorsePower’s Bailey and partner Cooper Layne. Chris Moore, producer of “Good Will Hunting,” will exec produce.

The “Solace” sale marks a hat trick for the pairing of Griffin and HorsePower, as the nascent production firm has two other projects in the Fox 2000 hopper: The Griffin-penned “Mobile” and “Best Laid Plans.” The latter is shooting under Mike Baker’s helm and stars Alessandro Nivola, Reese Witherspoon and Josh Brolin.

Moore, Alan Greenspan (not the Federal Reserve chief) and Betsy Beers serve as producers on “Plans.”

The “Solace” sale, inked by Fox execs Kevin McCormick and Jack Leslie while other suitors circled, was led by Endeavor’s Tom Strickler and legal eagle Ken Richman at Hansen, Jacobson.

In addition to “Best Laid Plans,” Griffin is behind “Ravenous,” which is in production at Fox.

HorsePower is prepping “Dreadnaught” for TriStar; “The Core,” an actioner for Paramount; and “Foolproof” for Universal.
