Temple, written by Script Pipeline “Recommend” writer Matt Savelloni, will be produced by WWE Studios and Kiss legend Gene Simmons under their new Erebus Pictures banner, which plans to finance and produce horror films. Simmons will also star in the horror/thriller. Temple centers on a team of operatives trapped inside a military compound after its AI is disabled, leading to “strange phenomena” as they unlock the mystery of the previous team’s disappearance. Matt, who signed with a Script Pipeline partner (manager Andrew Kersey), has another action feature in development, Exile to Babylon.
20th Century Fox purchased the rights to the comic miniseries The Foundation, and Script Pipeline competition winner Evan Daugherty will write the screenplay adaptation as well as serve as Executive Producer. In addition to this feature project, Evan is writing Midnight Mass for NBC, the event series Esmeralda for ABC, and GI Joe 3 for Paramount. He’ll make his directorial debut with Ink and Bone (Dimension Films) in 2015. Previous writing credits include Snow White and the Huntsman (2012), Divergent (2014), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (2014). He also wrote and directed short live-action films based on the Super Mario Bros. characters in 2013. Evan found representation after an introduction by Script Pipeline execs Chad Clough and Matt Misetich to manager Jake Wagner (Benderspink). His contest-winning script Shrapnel was produced in 2012 and starred Robert De Niro and John Travolta. Submit to a Script Pipeline competition Submit for notes and potential industry exposure
