Voltage Pictures has optioned science fiction spec script “Alter” from writers John and Thomas Sonntag. From Variety:
Script centers on a team of scientists aboard a space station monitoring activity around a black hole when they receive a transmission showing their deaths at the hands of mysterious aliens.
Writers are reportedly first-timers.
They are repped by UTA and Mosaic.
By my count, there have been 36 spec script sales in 2012.
There were 31 spec sales at this point last year.
Spec script deals are up 16% year-to-date compared to 2011.
