In a quick turnaround, Paramount Pictures has acquired the spec INFINITE from writer Ian Shorr, the Tracking Board has confirmed. The script only hit the market recently. Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian will co-produce the project.
Based on the unpublished novel by D. Eric Maikranz titled The Reincarnationist Papers, the story follows a schizophrenic who discovers all of his hallucinations and identities are, in reality, memories of various past lives.
Paramount has seen its share of turmoil recently, with the exit of Brad Grey and no official announcement about who will replace him after Michael De Luca turned down the offer yesterday, as well as the financial roadblocks the studio is currently facing with the Chinese companies Huahua Media and Shanghai Film Group.
