Hot new sci-fi actioner APEX DARK, which hit the market earlier this week is going into the weekend with a blockbuster level of buzz. The script, which is on the market from Silent R Management’s Jewerl Ross & Lee Stobby and WME’s newest addition – Stuart Manashil comes from newcomer scribes Alex Parslow & Andre Kovalov. The writing duo, who just a month ago landed with Silent R off of a blind query, are now seeing their work in everywhere, as most major territories are already off the table. The script, which centers on a bounty hunter journeying across multiple parallel worlds to take down a notorious inter-dimensional criminal, squarely fits into the sci-fi mold studios have been eager to pick up on the spec market this year. With hot specs “Garden at the End of the World”, “Terrestrial”, “Planet X” and “Slingshot” all having already landed at majors this year, studios are clamoring to fill the void with a mix of smart and fun sci-fi. With the list of those taking Apex Dark into the weekend, perhaps this could be the next on the list.
