Sony hot for duo’s ‘White Out’ pitch

Hoeber brothers to pen script, Radiant will produce

HOLLWOOD — Sony Pictures Entertainment has purchased the rights to develop the comic book series “White Out” as a feature film. Acquired for low- to mid-six figures, the pic will be developed by Wolfgang Petersen’s Columbia-based Radiant Prods.

The brotherly screenwriting duo of Jon and Erich Hoeber (“Montana”) will pen the thriller, based on Greg Rucka’s Oni Press comicbook series.

“White Out” centers on a female U.S. marshal who is living in self-imposed exile in Antarctica. Her quiet life of relative solitude is dramatically changed when she is called upon to investigate the first murder on that continent.

Project was brought into Radiant Prods. by senior veepee Sam Dickerman. It will be produced by Radiant’s Gail Katz and Petersen as a possible directing vehicle for Petersen (“Air Force One”), whose latest pic, “The Perfect Storm,” will be released by Warner Bros.

Col exec VP Amy Baer will shepherd the project for the studio.

The Hoeber brothers were repped in the deal by Angela Cheng, who recently departed the Gersh Agency for Writers & Artists Agency.

Rucka was repped by lit agent David Hale Smith in Dallas.
