Nina Jacobson’s Color Force has just signed a three-year first-look deal with Fox 2000.
Recent Fox 2000 successes include The Fault in Our Stars. Jacobson previously worked with the division in producing the Diary of a Wimpy Kid franchise. It’s an interesting choice as you get the benefit of the small Fox 2000 which is run by Elizabeth Gabler, and the distribution and marketing arms of Fox which releases all the films.
The first Fox 2000-Color Force project under the agreement will be an adaptation of Robert Crais’ novel Suspect.
Jacobson has just wrapped up production on the third and fourth films of The Hunger Games quadrilogy. Her company is also adapting the novels Where’d You Go, Bernadette by Maria Semple, Crazy Rich Asians by Kevin Kwan, and The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt.
