Gone Fishin’ reels in scribe Turner with two-pic pact

Deal is worth mid-six figures

Casey Silver’s Gone Fishin’ Prods. has signed scribe Sheldon Turner to a two-picture deal worth as much as mid-six figures.

The U-based shingle, with a first-look deal at the studio, will pay Turner out of its discretionary fund.

“We believe that Sheldon is one of the most promising young writers in town,” said Chris Salvaterra, vice president of production at Gone Fishin’. “We’re very eager to be working on movies with him.”

Turner and Gone Fishin’ have not yet committed to specific projects. The scribe has TV development deals at Fox and Davis Entertainment and recently sold “The Inside Man,” a corporate thriller spec script, to Ignite Entertainment.

The deal is the third announced by Gone Fishin’ since it was formed in the fall by the former Universal Pictures chairman and CEO. The shingle also will produce “Hopeless to Hardcore,” based on the memoirs of retired Col. David Hackworth, and has purchased the script “The Party Professional.”

Turner was repped by Endeavor, attorney David Fox and Berg-Saccani Management, formed earlier this year by former Universal development executives Jon Berg and Damien Saccani.
