Gary Fleder (Runaway Jury, The Express) has signed on to helm Protection. Produced by John Davis (the upcoming Gulliver’s Travels and Marmaduke), the thriller, “centers on a college professor who investigates the disappearance of his wife and daughter and who must confront authorities at the Witness Protection Program to find them.” Oh, those rascally folks at the Witness Protection Program. Always up to no good, protecting witnesses, and what not.
Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard) will rewrite the spec script from Allan Loeb (21). [Variety]
