Spec Script Sale: “Slingshot”

January 10th, 2014 by

Benaroya Pictures acquires science fiction thriller spec script “Slingshot” written by Scott Adams.

Premise: Trapped on a hobbled spacecraft, an astronaut struggles to survive not just the mission, but a crew that’s more dangerous than it seems.

Script was a Nicholl Fellowship finalist.

Adams is repped by Above The Line Agency and Energy Entertainment.

By my count, this is the 2nd spec script sale of 2014.

    It seems that there is a bit of a trend for the whole “trapped on a spaceship in peril” thing.

    This is not a criticism. I love these sorts of films. But I’ve definitely noticed the trend. I’ve even got a script in prep with the same premise.

    The zeitgeist is indeed a funny thing.
