CRIMINAL (SPEC) **BREAKS INTO SOME MAJOR TERRITORIES**

0

Hot new spec is making it’s way around town. We’re hearing it’s already into the following:

  • Hutch Parker Entertainment into CBS Films/Legendary Pictures/Millennium Entertainment
  • Original into Columbia Pictures, Universal Pictures
  • Mark Sourian into DreamWorks Studios
  • Davis Entertainment into 20th Century Fox
  • Escape Artists into Lionsgate/Summit Entertinment
  • Bryan Brucks/Paul Walker into Relativity Media

The action-thriller is written by & and revolves around the simple conceit of the right man in the wrong body. A dead CIA operative’s memories, secrets and skills are implanted into an unpredictable and dangerous prison inmate in hopes that he will complete the operative’s mission.

It’s a slippery slope with high concept ideas. They can be awesome in a “Face/Off” kind of way or not so awesome in a “Face/Off” kind of way. It’s all about tone and intent and I do hope the spec lives up to that elevator pitch.

Cook & Weisberg also wrote “Money Plane” and the previously titled “Bitches 11” for Summit. So they have a little experience with action hybrids. So they’ve probably pulled this one off, and no doubt are on their way to a sale.

They’re repped by , , of .

We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds.
