Van Nguyen’s hot new spec EXTRACTION has become one of the few able to carve out a name for itself in the famously slow industry month of August. The spec, which his the market from 6-17 Management’s Geoff Alexander on the 20th of August came on strong with a healthy dose of interest and fanfare. As of yesterday, the script had seen several territories come off the table including Lionsgate, Exclusive Media, Bold Films and Myriad Pictures.
Now this morning, we can add three more exclusives to the mix, as Nu Image/Millenium Films, Relativity Media and Sierra/Affinity have each requested the script for ASAP reads.
So, after just a few days on the open market some territories have been snatched up, but this spec is looking like its going to have some legs going into the weekend!
For Nguyen, this is the first spec to hit the Hollywood market. Alexander previously set up the spec “Vehicle 19”, which just wrapped production with Paul Walker, and the upcoming Rob Cohen project “Cargo”.
