Fox falls for Jones’ ‘Hall’

Farrelly brothers to produce 'Pass'

In a high six-figure deal, 20th Century Fox has purchased “Hall Pass,” a spec script by Pete Jones. Conundrum’s Peter and Bobby Farrelly and Bradley Thomas will produce the film, which could shape up as a directing vehicle for the sibs behind “There’s Something About Mary.”

Jones, best known as the subject of the first “Project Greenlight” with his movie “Stolen Summer,” has scripted a relationship comedy in which a married couple find themselves going through the motions. The wife gives her husband a “hall pass,” which means permission to engage in extracurriculars. Complications ensue.

Conundrum’s Mark Charpentier brought in the project, which was packaged by CAA, with Jones’ attorney Jeffrey Abrams assisting. Fox exec Debbie Liebling will oversee the pic.

Conundrum’s next film is “The Ringer,” bowing in December.
