New Line tees up Foxx pic

Studio seeking scribe to pen comedy

New Line Cinema has acquired the comedy pitch “Ingle Woods” from Duane Martin and Lawrence Bender Prods., with Jamie Foxx attached to star. New Line will hire a writer to pen the script from Martin’s story.

Comedy is the story of Ingle Woods, a golfer raised in Inglewood who plays golf when he isn’t working at McDonald’s. Taught by his dad, and a phenomenal player despite the lack of correct equipment or pro training, Woods must face the challenge of turning pro when an agent woos him to take his hobby on the circuit.

Martin is an actor whose credits include “Scream 2” and “Any Given Sunday,” in which he portrayed the agent of Foxx’s football-player character. He also was a producer on the 1998 Fox series “Getting Personal,” in which he starred opposite Vivica A. Fox.

In addition to taking a role in “Ingle Woods,” Martin will produce with Bender, Ross Grayson Bell (“Fight Club”) and Foxx’s manager, Jaime Rucker King (“Held Up”).
