Jones will adapt and direct the film with Washngton producing. Also producing are Ross Richie and Stephen Christy for Boom! Studios. Boom!’s Adam Yoelin will co-produce. Daria Cercek and Jon Wu will oversee for Fox.
BOOM! has a first look deal with 20th Century Fox Television and 20th Century Fox Film. It’s currently in post on the supernatural thriller The Empty Man for Fox, and developing Mouse Guard, with Wes Ball attached to direct, Matt Reeves producing, and Gary Whitta writing; Irredeemable with Adam McKay attached to direct and Tommy Wirkola writing; and Malignant with Becca Thomas attached to direct.
