Marvel’s back on the development horse with a few perhaps lesser-known projects, but potentially big franchises: The Human Fly and Guardians of the Galaxy, based on the popular (more or less) comic series. Also headed for screen adaptation: Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, which doesn’t need explanation for those of you who had a computer in the 80s. Jennifer Lopez may star as the renowned thief. In the world of sports, Casey Affleck has optioned the rights to Josh Hamilton’s inspirational life story as a top prospect, turned drug addict, turn MLB star. Draft Day, with Ivan Reitman directing, about the Buffalo Bills GM trying to secure the number one draft pick. How about a Bills Super Bowl movie, Reitman? Let the world live the dream once.
Other script sales include:
– The sequel to Script Pipeline contest-winner Evan Daugherty’s Snow White and the Huntsman.
– It only took several decades, but. . . Sesame Street: the movie.
– Universal is producing a Moby Dick project. Casting for the whale should be a nightmare.
– And this just sounds awesome. Skyscraper: a group of Chicago steelworkers must save the city from a collapsing mile-high structure.
