“Hunger Games” producer Nina Jacobson and partner Brad Simpson’s Color Force has signed a three-year, first-look deal with Fox 2000 pictures.
The deal was announced on Tuesday by Fox 2000 Pictures president, Elizabeth Gabler.
“We are extremely honored and proud to officially welcome Nina and Brad and the Color Force team to the Fox family,” said Gabler. “Their passion and commitment to filmmakers and material is inspirational and exciting, and we know this will be a wonderful continuation to what has been an extremely collaborative and productive partnership.”
Fox and Color Force have already teamed up on the “Diary of a Wimpy Kid” series. Color Force already has first-look cable television deal with FX Productions.
Senior VP Bryan Unkeless will oversee development for Color Force, which is developing an adaptation of Robert Crais’ best-selling novel “Suspect” as its first Fox film under the new deal.
Color Force is in the midst of producing an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel, “The Goldfinch,” while continuing to produce “Hunger Games” movies with Lionsgate.
