Script Sales - April


Everything got a little more serious in April, with a slate of sci-fi, action, thriller, and adventure dominating the mix, rather than an influx of comedies. With the minor exceptions of Dodgeball 2 and a new, modernized take on the classic 80s film Weird Science. A prequel to Stephen King's The Shining is also in the works, The Overlook Hotel. And get battle-ready: Gears of War, based on the bestselling video game franchise, and Battle Los Angeles 2, a burgeoning franchise itself, are in development.

Other script sales include:

- Good grief, it's about time: Blue Sky will helm a CG animated Charlie Brown film.

- 20th Century Fox taking the lead on an adaptation of Guys and Dolls

- The real question is: why wouldn't John McClane go to Tokyo in Die Hardest?

- Vertigo Entertainment and Warner Bros. to produce Dungeons and Dragons, sure to shed the "geek" stigma over the franchise.
