Paramount Pictures has bought an original pitch from screenwriters Willie Block and Jake Emanuel. According to Risky Bussiness, “The high-concept action-adventure story mixes original ideas with the framework of the traditional Hunchback of Notre Dame story. Though said to be in the vein of the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, its plotline is being kept secret by producers Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian.” This purchase should help my pitch for The Heart Is a Lonely Hunter done in the style of 300.
Block and Emanuel first gained attention because of their action-comedy spec script, Fuck You I Win which I’m sure is much more intelligent than the title makes it sound. This bodes well for my spec script, Are You Fucking Kidding Me.
