A handful of sci-fi epics mix with a good deal of dramas and remakes. For those of you who went to elementary school in the eighties, Dreamworks will produce an adaptation of Roald Dahl’s fantasy classic The BFG (which could mean so many things in the 21st century, but stands for “The Big Friendly Giant”). Also, in a move that makes Script Pipeline’s GM cringe and yet simultaneously grow giddy: Point Break will get a reboot. Although the only thing they could improve upon is dialogue. And maybe tone down the tomboyish antics of Lori Petty.
Other script sales include:
– Paramount takes on the biblical epic of Noah. Darren Aronofsky to direct and produce.
– Definitely the coolest concept in a while: the sci-fi/fantasy script Time Zones, where a man travels through various parts of the world, each area different points in time, in order to save his wife.
– A new remake of Mortal Kombat, similar to the script Time Zones where studio execs believe movie audiences are living in 1995. . . . No, it’ll probably be awesome. Well, 30/70 shot.
– Ah, if we could only write in slow-motion. . . Baywatch the movie is coming.
