Inks first-look deal with Sony-based prod'n company

Producer-scribe Scott Wynne, who recently sold a treatment to Columbia Pictures with baseball writer W.P. Kinsella attached to pen, has inked a first-look deal with Rob Fried’s Sony-based production company.

“I’m pleased to be in business with Scott,” said Fried. “He is a dynamic and creative individual with many innovative ideas and the ability to think outside the box. He has close relationships in town and is someone who, I believe, will have a quick rise to the top.”

Wynne, a graduate of the American Film Institute, produced such shorts as “Taste for Blood,” “Living Legend” and “Rinse the Blood off My Toga.”

Before AFI, Wynne produced “The Orange Grove,” directed by Chris Hall.

Wynne also worked for Savoy Pictures in the creative advertising department. Fried was the former prexy of Savoy’s film division.

Fried Films is currently planning productions on “World War III” and “The Brooklyn Saints” for Columbia. The company is also making “Winchell,” a look at the life of gossip columnist Walter Winchell directed by Paul Mazursky for HBO.
