"The Nail" sold to Fox?

A sale is imminent for the Tony Luke Jr.-Leo Rossi drama "The Nail: The Story of Joey Nardone," Luke tells me.

Fox has been identified as the potential buyer.

The film, which will have its world premiere in March as part of the Philadelphia CineFest, was shot here over 18 days last June.

"The Nail," written by Luke and Jason Noto and directed by James Quattrochi, has the cheesesteak whiz/actor starring as a boxer coming home after eight years in prison a beaten man. While hanging out at his old gym, he befriends a bullied teen (Paul Orrantia).

Leo Rossi (a producer), Tony Danza and Ray "Boom Boom" Mancini have small roles.
