Sci-Fi Channel aired “Fireball” on May 2nd, 2009, written by InkTip scribe Kraig Wenman and produced by Harvey Kahn with Front Street Pictures. After Wenman was referred to Kahn by producer Michael Jacobs, Front Street produced the action/thriller starring Ian Somerhalder (“Lost” and “The Vampire Diaries”).
The company’s website describes the MOW as such: “A small town fire inspector teams with a big city federal investigator to track down a psychopath who is terrorizing a small community with his newfound power of pyrotelekineses…the ability to shoot fire by mere thought alone.”
This is the latest success by Wenman, who has built a career penning mainly thriller features, many of which were scripts of his discovered on InkTip. He is currently writing a blockbuster project with producer Tom DeSanto (“Transformers,” “X-Men”).
Kahn, who has produced features starring Naomi Watts, Mark Ruffalo, Laura Dern and Christian Slater, currently produces the hit series “R.L. Stine’s ‘The Haunting Hour’” and last completed the Lifetime remake of “Flowers in the Attic” (Heather Graham, Ellen Burstyn). Jacobs executive produced the Wenman-written feature “Nowhere to Hide.”
