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.
