A good mix of genres, from comic adaptations to family comedies, fill what was a busy February for script sales. The Jetsons are coming to theaters from WB–live action to boot. Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson may be teaming up again in the comedy Interns. Catherine Hardwick returns with a script set against LA’s music scene, Evan Rachel Wood starring. And the potential cast of the musical comedy One Hit Wonders includes Gwyneth Paltrow, Andy Samberg, Reese Witherspoon, and Beyonce. Sounds about right, albeit Samberg seems to be the curve ball in that one.
Other script sales include:
– Hilarity returns in The Muppets 2. No word yet on returning human cast.
– Maybe the most promising concept from February: The Curiosity, based on the to-be-published novel about a man frozen for 100 years returning to modern society. Fox to produce.
– A sports bio on the legendary Jim Brown. Hal Lieberman producing.
– It didn’t even take two decades: a sequel to the 80s hit Top Gun.
