A screenplays on The Black List can mean some green. Days after the new list was revealed by Deadline, two scripts have found homes;
Vendome Pictures has just committed to finance What Happened To Monday?, a futuristic thriller by Max Botkin that was developed by Raffaella Productions. The script follows the story of identical septuplet brothers who struggle to stay alive in an overpopulated world where a “one child” policy outlaws siblings. Raffaella De Laurentiis and Vendome’s Philippe Rousselet are producing. Vendome financed the Summit release Source Code and the Tom Hanks-directed Larry Crowne, which gets released by Universal July 1, 2011 with Hanks, Julia Roberts and Bryan Cranston starring. CAA and EML Entertainment rep Botkin.
Paramount Pictures has acquired Boy Scouts Vs. Zombies, a Black List script by Carrie Evans & Emi Mochizuki, two graduates of the Disney Writing Program who also scripted College Road Trip. The film is being produced by Todd Garner’s Broken Road, Oops Doughnuts partners Andy Fickman and Betsy Sullenger, and Bryan Brucks’ Brucks Entertainment. The script is in the vein of Goonies, and is about a local boy scout troop that must save the local girl scout troop from a zombie outbreak on an overnight camping trip. Devra Lieb reps the scribes and Brucks manages them. Sean Robins will be exec producer.
