Marlowe woos WB with Ford

'Hollow,' 'Days' scribe could see seven-figure sum

Warner Bros. Pictures will pay Andrew Marlowe (“Air Force One”) an upfront fee of $750,000 to pen an untitled project for John Woo to direct and Harrison Ford to topline.

Marlowe pitched the story to Ford, who loved it and will star, pending script approval.

In a unique deal, Marlowe, who also wrote “Hollow Man” and “End of Days,” is likely to see a payday well into seven figures if the pic gets made.

Warners exec veep of production Jeff Robinov will oversee the project for the company.

Woo, who last year helmed “Mission: Impossible 2,” is completing post on “Windtalkers,” which stars Nicolas Cage. Ford last appeared in the Robert Zemeckis-helmed “What Lies Beneath,” opposite Michelle Pfeiffer.

The William Morris Agency, which reps both Marlowe and Woo, packaged the deal; Ford is repped by UTA and McQueeney Management.
