The Brandon Sanderson-penned sci-fi novella SNAPSHOT has been acquired by MGM. Broken Road Productions (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse) and Entertainment 360 (Office Christmas Party) are set to produce.
The story is set in a society that can create a snapshot of a specific day in time that can be real again for one day. The court uses these snapshots for investigations. Authorities use it as a way to find where a criminal dumped a weapon or what really happened in a domestic dispute. But when a detective on Snapshot Duty investigates the memory of a call that was never logged, he makes a horrifying discovery.
Sanderson’s work includes writing for the Infinity Blade video game franchise. An adaptation of his fantasy series The Reckoners is currently in development at 20th Century Fox with Shawn Levy’s 21 Laps attached to produce.
He is repped by APA.
