Alan Yang Hits the JACKPOT at 20th Century Fox

     December 9, 2009


Alan Yang, who worked as a consultant on South Park before his latest stint as a writer for Parks and Recreations, has just sold his film pitch for Jackpot to 20th Century Fox. Variety describes the film as a teen version of the Kevin Spacey-headlined 21 and centers on a group of friends who win the lottery while they are still in high school. Jackpot will be produced by Michael Aguilar (Semi-Pro, What Happened in Vegas) through his newly formed, Fox-based Dos Tontos production company. The film will probably not garner the same critical recognition as Danny Boyle’s similarly themed Millions but it is always nice to see a writer break through and secure that first movie deal.
