Fox finds ‘Forecast’

Twentieth Century Fox has purchased “Five Day Forecast,” a pitch from first-time writing team Jonathan Fernandez and Thomas Hines for Davis Entertainment. The pre-emptive bid for the high-concept action movie was low six-figures upfront against middle six figures on the back end.

Fernandez was previously a production exec for Dino De Laurentiis’ production company, and has a co-producer credit on this year’s Kurt Russell-starrer “Breakdown.” Hines is a former lawyer.

Deal was brokered by ICM agents Nick Reed and Doug MacLaren, who rep Fernandez and Hines.
