Wind Dancer calls on scribes


Indie production company Wind Dancer Films has hired writers for two feature comedies -- the first projects launched with Wind Dancer's recently announced private-equity development fund.

Bear Aderhold & Tom Sullivan have been hired to pen "Fear Less." The comedy writers behind the sequel to Eddie Griffin's "Undercover Brother" and the upcoming Lionsgate film "Delta Farce" will pen a script centered on a fearful man who after a freak accident can no longer experience fear. Aderhold & Sullivan most recently worked on the pilot "Homeland Security" for WBTV and NBC. Aderhold & Sullivan are repped by Ryan Saul at Metropolitan, as well as Chris Ridenhour & Brad Kaplan at Evolution.

Erik Lindsay has signed to write "Little Bastards," a buddy comedy about a couple of devious twentysomething cousins whose outlaw lifestyle comes to a grinding halt when their dying grandmother curses them with "goodness." Lindsay is repped by Benderspink, UTA and Eclipse Law.

Wind Dancer films was created by Matt Williams, David McFadzean and Carmen Finestra.
