A relatively unremarkable month for script sales after a big 2012, but some great projects in development nonetheless. A few teen/sci-fi scripts in the mix, including Monument 14, based on the recent novel, and Reboot, which will be published in 2013. Benderspink and Summit Entertainment co-producing the comedy Bitches 11, and Script Pipeline partner Thruline Entertainment managing the writer of recently sold Revoc, a sci-fi/thriller. Summit producing as well, with Mandeville Films. Steve Carrell may also star in the based-on-a-true-story comedy about everyone in a small village winning the lottery–except one man.
Other script sales include:
– 20th Century Fox adapting the sci-fi/thriller Theory of Everything, from the uber-cool comic series.
– Disney + sea creatures = inevitably heartwarming in Dolphin Boy, about dolphins nurturing the recovery of a young Arab boy.
– Can’t wait to see the plot: Alice in Wonderland 2 has the green light. Joe Roth producing.
– Jumanji officially getting a new rendition. Who else wants Robin Williams to reprise his role?
