Fox announces ‘Man and Wife’

Studio nabs Alan McElroy's action-thriller spec

Twentieth Century Fox has scooped up Alan McElroy’s action-thriller spec “Man and Wife” for mid-six figures.

Story of international espionage centers on a professional killer, who has to pretend to be an ordinary husband, and the wife who learns to love him in a totally unexpected way.

Ralph Winter, who produced the “X-Men” and “Fantastic Four” franchises for Fox, is producing through his studio-based shingle. Noah Rosen is exec producing.

McElroy previously teamed with Winter on last year’s religion-themed thriller “Three” for Fox Faith. The scribe also penned “Left Behind: The Movie,” which Winter also produced.

McElroy’s credits include “Resident Evil” and “Spawn.”
