We’re hearing the hot new action/thriller spec HIGH VALUE TARGET out on the market from Brooklyn Weaver’s Energy Entertainment is getting a LOT of heat as it slips into expectant buyers looking to get their hands on the much buzzed about new spec from writer Spenser Cohen. The script, which is based on true events, centers on an international squad of private military contractors who are tasked with the job of infiltrating a cargo ship overrun by pirates in order to capture and extract a seemingly impossible High-Value Target, the pirate warlord. The project had originally hit the market as a pitch this Spring, landing at Vinson Films where it was developed into the spec that is now hitting the market.
The project is currently into a handful of buyers, but is being fast-tracked up the ladder at Lionsgate / Summit Entertainment and Sony Pictures as of this morning! Vinson & Weaver partnered with Original Film to make that move.
