Fox, Hutch Parker Acquire Heist Pitch From Scribe Matt Cook

EXCLUSIVE: 20th Century Fox and Hutch Parker Entertainment have acquired an untitled heist film from screenwriter Matt Cook, whose percolating scripts include Triple Nine and By Way Of Helena. It’s the second project between the script and Parker, who is developing at FX an original prison-set drama called Keepers. Parker, who came back to the Fox lot as producer after leaving New Regency, just produced Wolverine and recently joined the producing roster for X-Men: Days Of Future Past, which Bryan Singer is directing for the studio shortly. Parker exec Dan Wilson is spearheading the heist project along with Fox exec Jason Young. Cook is repped by WME and Anonymous Content.
