Code Entertainment has picked up Chris Borrelli’s action spec “Sad Jack,” following more than a week of negotiations amid multiple bidders.
Producers are Code’s Al Corley, Bart Rosenblatt, Eugene Musso and H2F’s Chris Cowles. Exec producers are Jonathan Dana, Borrelli and Chris Fenton at H2F. Code is financing and aiming to go into production next summer.
“Sad Jack” tells the story of a hired assassin who is challenged by his paranoid schizophrenia to distinguish real threats from those conceived in his imagination.
Other bidders in the mix included White Knuckle, Mandalay Vision and Bold Films.
Borrelli’s credits include “Whisper” for Universal, “The Marine” for Fox, “Wake” for Exclusive Media and “Vatican Tapes” for Lionsgate/Lakeshore.
Borrelli is repped by WME, H2F and attorney Jeff Frankel. WME also reps Code.
