USA, Intermedia tap ‘Code’ with tyro scribes

Marx, Loory get deal for Nazi, Resistance fighters story

HOLLYWOOD — Rookie screenwriting team Jason Marx and Ben Loory have signed two deals — one with USA Films and Jodie Foster’s Egg Pictures, another with Guy East and Nigel Sinclair’s Intermedia Films and producer Mark Johnson — thanks to one hot script, “The Code.”

The duo sold USA and Egg a WWII pitch in which Nazi secrets are communicated to Resistance fighters via music. That became “The Code” (aka “Crescendo”), which is currently out to directors.

Johnson received a copy of “The Code” as a work sample and was so impressed by the work that he signed Marx and Loory to a blind, low- against mid-six figure writing deal in association with Intermedia. Julie Golden, Intermedia’s senior veep production, will oversee projects developed under the deal.

While “The Code” is the first project for the Marx-Loory pair, Marx previously partnered with Moses Robinson on “Six Feet Under,” a dark comedy that is currently set up at Artisan Entertainment with Offline Entertainment Group producing.

Marx and Loory are repped by Endeavor, manager Andrew Deane at Gold Miller Co. and attorney David Evans. Robinson is repped by Endeavor.
