2012 Nicholl Fellowship Finalist ENDANGERED is continuing its hot streak! Last night the spec was taken into Warner Bros., DreamWorks and Screen Gems by producers. This brings its territory total to ten with a sale looking imminent.
The spec is pitched as being in the vein of “Crichton” meets “Amblin”. When a drug company discovers a primate over 200 years old, a team descends on the perilous jungle of southeast Asia in search of the Fountain of Youth; only to find there are ancient reasons it has stayed forever hidden.
Written by Ryan Belenzon and Jeffrey Gelber, the script is said to be a follow up of their previous spec “X”. The writing pair are repped by Ida Ziniti at Paradigm and Jeff Belkin at Zero Gravity Management.
