DreamWorks Conjures Ghost Story Pitch Deal From ‘Independence Day 2′ Scribe Carter Blanchard
The pitch is best described as a full on ghost story rooted in classic Amblin story telling. Blanchard previously sold his time travel story Glimmer to the studio in a heated bidding war.
Madhouse Entertainment’s Adam Kolbrenner will produce with partner Robyn Meisinger and Madhouse’s Ryan Cunningham serving as Executive Producers. Blanchard is separately adapting the Mark Millar comic book Kindergarten Heroesfor Fox and producer Simon Kinberg. He previously wrote Spy Hunter for Warner Bros and his script Near Death was just picked up by Voltage with Gabriele Muccino set to direct. Blanchard is repped by Paradigm, Madhouse and attorney Peter Grossman.
