Writer/producer Arash Amel is in talks to write the script for MGM’s WARGAMES reboot. The popular 1983 original starred Matthew Broderick and Ally Sheedy as two teenagers who hack into a Defense Department computer and unwittingly start a game with the computer that threatens to launch WWIII.
Amel recently wrote and produced biopic “Grace of Monaco,” which stars Nicole Kidman and Milo Ventimiglia. He also penned the script for action/thriller “Erased.” Amel is next set to pen scripts for biopic “Seducing Ingrid Bergman,” sci-fi thriller sequel “I Am Legend 2,” and action flick “Soldiers of the Sun,” which stars Vin Diesel as soldier searching for a fabled city of gold that’s protected by an alien race.
Amel is repped by CAA.
