THE MAYOR OF SHARK CITY began its attack run early this morning, making the following moves:
- Producers — into — Warner Bros. Pictures
- Producers — into — Sony Pictures
- Producers — into — Universal Pictures
- Producers — into — Walt Disney Pictures
- Producers — into — HBO
- Producers — into — Syfy
The spec tells the untold story of the making of the very first summer blockbuster, JAWS. Which is interesting because the difficulties during the shoot of the classic are pretty well known, but perhaps that’s not the full story as they say.
The proud writers are Michael Sweeney and Nick Creature, which honestly sound like cartoon villains but kudos to them for overcoming that. They are repped by Markus Goerg and Mikhail Nayfeld of Heroes & Villains Entertainment, whom I’m told are spearheading the push forward, and Jim Ehrich of The Rothman Brecher Kim Agency.
We’ll keep you updated as the story unfolds!
