FIGHTING JACOB (2013) Fade to Black Films
Jamie Bell and Kate Mara. Directed by Charlie McDowell, Fighting Jacob tells the story of Jacob, an up and coming boxer whose extreme OCD and neuroses are actually the reasons he thrives in the ring. But after he meets Serena and begins to fall in love, his OCD starts to go away and his boxing abilities soon follow. In the cinematic vein of Charlie Kaufman and Woody Allen, Jacob battles with the possibility that he can't be happy and a great fighter at the same time. It all comes to a head when Jacob believes he must choose between his promising boxing career and happiness with Serena.
Production is slated for Summer 2012
