According to Variety, Twentieth Century Fox has acquired the Dario Scardapane spec script Fed X as a star vehicle for Hugh Jackman, who'll produce with his Seed Production partner John Palermo.

The deal reps Fox's second significant material buy for Seed in the past month, after the studio set up the Jennifer Robinson-Dyanne Stempel romantic comedy pitch "Rebound Guy."

In Fed X, Jackman will play a green FBI agent sent to Miami to retrieve a criminal for prosecution. During the return trip, the fed and the thug each learn there's more to the other than expected.
