Huge month for script sales. Danny DeVito producing (and with a little luck, starring) in the comedy Honeymoon with Dad. Title self-explanatory. Based on the graphic novel, Benderspink producing the action/thriller Langley High, as well as the rather cool-sounding Foretold about a man sent through time to overthrow a future, evil version of himself. Nia Vardalos is back on the rom-com–scratch that: anti-rom-com–trail with Leftovers. The spirit of The Magnificent Seven + Adam Sandler = Ridiculous 6. Perhaps a Three Amigos for the 21st century, and if so, bravo, Mr. Sandler.
Other script sales include:
– Elijah Wood starring in and producing Cooties, a horror about elementary school students turning into “mass savages”. . . . A very realistic horror, indeed.
– Because the world needs a Scarface without a dated, albeit classic, 80s montage, Universal will reboot the crime/drama.
– The doctor is in: development is underway for a feature-length Peanuts movie.
– Sequels for The Hunger Games are (obviously) in the pipeline as well.
