Film House Germany and Vandal Entertainment acquire thriller spec script “Command & Control” written by Byron Willinger and Phil De Blasi. From Deadline:
The producers are out to select directors on the project, which follows a NSA employee as he takes over the most secure room in the nation — U.S. Cyber Command — using its advanced spyware technology to unravel a deadly conspiracy. In an effort to redeem himself and save millions of innocent lives, he gains the trust of a young female hacker to stop a false-flag operation being run by members of the government.
Writers are repped by Verve.
By my count this is the 30th spec script deal in 2015.
There were 25 spec script deals year-to-date in 2014.
