Lionsgate's Summit buys spec script for "grounded" sci-fi thriller in vein of LUCY: #film #movies
’s Summit Entertaintment label just acquired an untitled spec script from screenwriter John Gary, described as a “grounded” sci-fi thriller which is a character-driven property in the vein of Luc Besson’s box office smash Lucy . The original script was called Sarah . Another strong female leading a pic? No argument here. The project will be produced by The Gotham Group’s Eric Robinson and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein . Nate Matteson is executive producing. Gary wrote the script based on an original idea from Robinson apparently. Execs at Lionsgate — Gillian Bohrer and James Myers — loved it and picked it up.
