Fortis Chases captive pic

St. Germain to pen Latin American political drama

Sandra Bullock’s Warner Bros.-based Fortis Films will produce the untitled Tammi Chase story for Revolution Studios, with Mark St. Germain attached to pen the screenplay.

Pic, to be produced by Bullock and Chase, centers around two families whose loved ones have been trapped in the Latin American political system.

In both cases, the people were held without being charged with anything while the U.S. government displayed little interest in bringing the imprisoned U.S. citizens to freedom.

Seeking family rights

At Fortis, prexy and CEO Gesine Bullock-Prado will shepherd the project. Fortis has sealed a deal for the rights to Chase’s story. Chase’s mother was imprisoned in Ecuador for two years while fatally sick. Company is pursuing the rights for at least one other family.

St. Germain, repped by ICM, has written for such TV series as “Buddies,” “The Wright Verdicts,” “Crime and Punishment” and “Lifestories.” Among his screenplays are “Lambs of God,” set up at Fox and “Brave Every Danger” at MGM.

Repped by CAA, Bullock is filming “Full Proof” (aka “Murder by Numbers”) with Barbet Schroeder directing for Castle Rock.

Up next for Bullock is “Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood,” to be produced by Bonnie Bruckheimer via Bette Midler’s All Girl Prods., with Callie Khouri helming.
