‘Straight Outta Compton’s Matt Alvarez to Produce

Broad Green Pictures is developing The Fight Before Christmas, a comedic holiday pitch from Daddy’s Home writer Brian Burns. Burns, who is also known for writing hit shows including the CBS dramatic TV series “Blue Bloods” and HBO’s “Entourage” will pen the script. The film will be produced by Matt Alvarez (Straight Outta Compton, the Ride Along franchise).

“Brian has a talent for creating dynamic and hilarious stories that audiences gravitate towards,” said Alvarez. “It will be a pleasure to work with him and I know that together we will make a memorable holiday film."

Broad Green Pictures’ Gabriel and Daniel Hammond add “as we continue to grow, original productions like The Fight Before Christmas will become a bigger focus for the studio. We are confident that this film, under the leadership of Matt will help build a strong base for our library of audience favorites.”

Josh Reinhold will oversee the project on behalf of Matt Alvarez’ production company, while Lauren McCarthy will oversee the project on behalf of Broad Green Pictures.

The deal was brokered on behalf of Burns by Karl Austen. Christopher Tricarico, EVP, Business & Legal Affairs and General Counsel handled for Broad Green.
