Fox & director hit ‘Road’

Pic centers on stuntman trying to save pal from the mob

Twentieth Century Fox has pacted with TV helmer Nelson McCormick to make his feature helming debut on the action-thriller “End of the Road,” a pic being developed by Fox-based producer Mark Gordon.

While lots of people in television are familiar with pilots, McCormick is especially so: He’s a former Air Force combat cameraman.

Until recently, though, McCormick was best known for helming episodes of John Wells’ shows “ER” and “Third Watch” as well as the Alphabet web’s spy skein “Alias.” He is also at work with Wells on developing an untitled pilot for the small screen.

In “Road,” a former stuntman must make a frenetic cross country trek in his vintage muscle car to save a friend from meeting his end at the hands of the Mob. The plot was no stretch for scribe Ric Roman Waugh, who for years has been an actual stuntman in Hollywood, putting himself in harm’s way on pics from “Gone in Sixty Seconds” to “True Romance.” He co-wrote it with Tag Mendillo, a producer on U’s 1998 David Schwimmer starrer “Kissing a Fool.”

Gordon’s producing credits include “Saving Private Ryan” and “The Patriot,” and he is currently producing “The Day After Tomorrow” for Fox, the eco-disaster pic helmed by Roland Emmerich.

McCormick’s repped by CAA.

Calls to a Fox spokeswoman for comment were not returned.
