Sidney Kimmel Entertainment acquires action crime spec script “Comancheria” from actor-turned-writer Taylor Sheridan. From Deadline:
Two brothers, one an ex-con and the other a divorced father of two kids, face the foreclosure of their family’s West Texas farm. They team for a skillfully-calculated bank robbing spree that puts them on a collision course with two Texas Rangers determined to take them down.
Sheridan was a regular on “Sons of Anarchy” before his character was killed off.
Sheridan is repped by Gersh and Elevate Entertainment.
By my count, this is the 37th spec script sale in 2012.
Last year at this time, there had been 31 spec sales.
Sales are up 19% year-to-date compared to 2011.
