DreamWorks and Montecito Pictures acquire comedy spec script “Besties” written by Cassie Daniels and Mark Bartosic. From Deadline:
It’s described as Wild Hogs meets My Best Friend’s Wedding and follows a woman who finds a long-lost love note then sets off on a road trip with her three best friends to break up the wedding of her childhood crush.
DreamWorks beat out two other potential buyers with a deal reported to be low-to-mid-six figures.
Daniels and Bartosic are repped by Paradigm.
By my count, this is the 38th spec script deal in 2016.
There were 38 spec script deals year-to-date in 2015.
