Producer John Fogel’s JAF Entertainment has sold spec script “Protection” to Fox-based Davis Entertainment for low- against mid-six figures.
Penned by Allen Loeb, script centers on a college professor who investigates the disappearance of his ex-wife and daughter. In doing so, he must confront the authorities of the Federal Witness Protection Program.
Davis prexy Wyck Godfrey brought the script to the attention of chairman John Davis and will shepherd the project. Buy was made from the shingle’s discretionary fund.
Fogel and the Metropolitan-repped Loeb have also recently inked pitch and spec sales with MGM/UA, DreamWorks Pictures and Revolution Studios.
“John Davis is one of the most insightful and prolific producers in the business,” enthused Fogel. “I’m looking forward to getting this movie produced with his company and Fox.”
