CBS Films acquires action thriller spec script “Inside the Machine” from writer Marc Maurino. Per Deadline:
The story centers on an undercover ATF agent who infiltrates a vicious cartel and is seduced by the power and violence he finds there. “Inside The Machine is about a man struggling to keep his undercover persona from destroying his personal life,” [producer Tripp] Vinson said. “Marc Maurino has written a script that is committed to being authentic. It’s that realism and attention to detail that has us very excited to be involved with Inside The Machine.”
Maurino is repped by UTA and Circle of Confusion.
By my count, this is the 33rd spec script to sell in 2011.
The 33rd spec script didn’t sell in 2010 until August 10, so sales are up significantly year-to-date.
