Up and coming writer Zak Olkewicz has a hot new spec hitting the market today! DON’T MOVE is currently into buyers and is just the latest in a long line of successes for Olkewica. The spec is based on a short film directed by Anthony Melton and Ben Franklin, who will both be back to helm this project. After appearing on the 2012 Young and Hungry List, Olkewicz sold his first spec just one month later. His follow-up, Ink and Bone, was picked up by Dimension with Evan Daugherty directing. Olkewicz then hit the market with the pitch Elimination in 2013, which sold to 21 Laps and Fox Searchlight later that year, making for a very impressive track record.
Don’t Move, out from Daniel Cohan at WME and Will Rowbotham at Caliber Media Company, centers on six friends who gather or their monthly game night but accidentally unleash a demonic force that threatens to tear them apart.
