US-based production house Wind Dancer Films has hired writers for the first two features unveiled in its recently announced development fund.

Bear Aderhold and Tom Sullivan will write Fear Less, a comedy about the most fearful man on earth, who loses all his inhibitions following a freak accident.

The writers most recently worked on the pilot Homeland Security for WBTV and NBC and are also the team behind the upcoming Lionsgate comedy Delta Farce, which is selling here in Berlin.

Erik Lindsay has been signed to write Little Bastards, a raucous buddy movie about a couple of mischievous twentysomething cousins who are transformed into little angels by their grandmother's dying wish. Director of development Susann Brinkley will oversee the projects.

'Erik Lindsay is a terrific writer who creates very funny characters caught in extreme situations,' Wind Dancer partner Matt Williams said. 'Bear Aderhold and Tom Sullivan's scripts are incredibly funny with great heart. I'm thrilled to be working with these writers.'

Wind Dancer launched the fund to develop comedies and character-driven thrillers with an eye on the international market. In addition to family films, the company is developing romantic, action and teen comedies. McFadzean is currently working on Hello, I Love You, The Fulton Street Gang, and The Motel Galileo.
