Ignite has ‘Inside’ track on Turner’s thriller spec

Deal estimated in mid-six figures

Ignite Entertainment has purchased corporate thriller spec script “The Inside Man” from Sheldon Turner in a deal that could be worth mid-six figures.

The script carries the same title as a previously announced project about police union corruption that Michael Mann is planning to produce with Harry Ufland. Scott Bernstein, Ignite’s senior vice president of production and development, said his company will be willing to change the title.

“We’re not planning to get in a race over this,” he added.

Bernstein will produce along with Ignite partners Michael Burns and Marc Butan.

The story involves a young Wall Streeter being framed by his mentor for the death of his firm’s leader. “The characters and world Sheldon created jumped off the page,” Bernstein said.

Hudson, who has TV development deals at Fox and Davis Entertainment, was repped by Endeavor, attorney David Fox and Berg-Saccani Management, formed in January by former Universal development executives Jon Berg and Damien Saccani to focus on young stars and directors and modestly priced projects.

Ignite was launched in 1997 and is producing “Getting Over Allison” for Dimension Films. It has produced “The Suburbans,” “But I’m a Cheerleader,” “Desert Blue” and “Girl.”
