Bythewood guns ‘Biker’ at Fox

Pic marks scribe's feature helming debut

Reggie Rock Bythewood is negotiating to mount “Biker Boyz” for Fox 2000.

Bythewood is best known for penning “Get on the Bus,” Spike Lee’s 1996 drama about the Million Man March on Washington, D.C. He last wrote and directed the telepic “Dancing in September” for HBO.

Deal would mark his studio feature helming debut.

Bythewood, repped by CAA, would also supervise the rewriting of the script, with the original screenplay by Craig Fernandez. Story is based on an article of the same name by New Times scribe Michael Gougis.

A mythic motorcycle tale of father and son set in the California biker culture, “Biker Boyz” centers on a drag-racing contest held each year in Fresno. Event draws not only from the multicultural biker clubs in the Golden State, but also the older Harley Davidson riders and the younger generation on their Japanese-built “bullet bikes.”

Stephanie Allain and Erwin Stoff of 3 Arts Entertainment will produce the project for the company’s 3 Arts Prods., which has an overall deal with 20th Century Fox.

Fox 2000 exec VP of production Carla Hacken is shepherding the project for the studio.
