Jeremy Slater to Write Untitled Airport-Thriller with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci Producing

     April 12, 2010

jeremy_slater_party_cat.jpgScreenwriter Jeremy Slater (seen right as an artist rendering of him informing people of the time) is set to write an untitled thriller set in an airport for DreamWorks with Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci producing and Mathew Cullen attached to direct.  THR has given me nothing else to write about the film itself, and while Jeremy Slater is a friend of the site, he won’t return answer my questions or return my calls no matter how many filthy, sexually explicit messages I leave on his answering machine.  In all seriousness, the dude is a great writer and one of the funniest people I know.  He also recently worked on the screenplay for the Paramount/MTV Films thriller Handsome Devil and has his spec script My Spy set up with producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura and CBS Films.  No disrespect to Slater but while I’m sure My Spy is good, it–like all other spy films–will never be as good as Spymate.

Orci and Kurtzman will continue their streak of producing everything (Fringe, The Defenders, Hawaii Five-0, Racing Dreams, Locke & Key, Deep Sea Cowboys, Atlantis Rising) to add to their writing credits for Star Trek, Transformers, and the upcoming Star Trek 2 and Cowboys & Aliens.
