Relativity Media announced today it has closed a deal with Ric Roman Waugh (Felon, Snitch) to direct and rewrite the sci-fi thriller currently-titled Tipping Point, based on the original screenplay from Todd Stein.
Tipping Point is a tense, riveting sci-fi thriller that paints an ominous picture of the world 100 years into the future. With the world's population approaching 10 billion, the penalty for having children without a license is death - no questions, no excuses, and no mercy. Ruthless Population Control Officer Solomon Cage lives only for his job, until the day he discovers two fugitives he's been pursuing are the love of his life who mysteriously disappeared years ago and the 12-year-old son he never knew he had.
Producing are Temple Hill Entertainment's Marty Bowen (The Twilight Saga) and Wyck Godfrey (The Twilight Saga) alongside Relativity's CEO Ryan Kavanaugh (The Fighter) and Industry Entertainment's Andrew Deane (The Double). Relativity's president Tucker Tooley (Immortals) and Industry Entertainment's Jess Rosenthal (Fire with Fire) will serve as executive producers.
Waugh's next film, Snitch, the fast-paced, action- thriller starring Dwayne Johnson, Jon Bernthal, Barry Pepper, Michael K. Williams, Melina Kanakaredes, Benjamin Bratt, and Susan Sarandon opens February 22, 2013. Waugh was repped by WME and Management 360 in his deal.
Up next, Relativity will release the outrageous ensemble comedy Movie 43 (in theaters January 25, 2013), the film adaptation of Nicholas Sparks' best-selling Safe Havenn (in theaters February 14, 2013), the comedy 21 & Over (in theaters March 1, 2013) and the corporate espionage thriller Paranoia (in theaters October 4, 2013). Relativity is currently in post-production on Scott Cooper's gritty dramatic thriller currently-titled Out of the Furnace and Luc Besson's darkly comedic action film Malavita (October 18, 2013) with EuropaCorp.
