〉This marks the third project that Ingelsby has set up at Scott Free.
The Tracking Board has learned that Run All Night and Out of the Furnace screenwriter Brad Ingelsby’s newest spec, CLAIRE, has been preemptively snapped up by Ridley Scott’s Scott Free and Erika Olde’s Black Bicycle Entertainment. Olde has come on board to finance both Ingelsby’s The Burning Woman–which was set up earlier this year at Scott Free–and Claire and will produce alongside Scott, Michael Pruss and Michael Schaefer.
Ingelsby’s latest drama is in the vein of Cape Fear, but centers around a female protagonist living on a rural farm who must defend her daughter when she falls in with the wrong crowd. The role is being described as a tour de force female lead which could serve as a ‘bookend’ to The Burning Woman.
Olde’s Black Bicycle recently wrapped production on November Criminals starring Chloe Grace Moretz, the teen dramedy based on the novel by Sam Munson.
Ingelsby, who also wrote the Liam Neeson action thriller Run All Night, is a two-time Hit List veteran (2012, 2014), a Young & Hungry List veteran (2011), and has appeared twice on The Black List. This latest deal marks the third project Ingelsby has set up at Scott Free, having also sold his crime thriller A Better Place to the shingle in 2014 and the aforementioned Burning Woman in February of this year.
