Bad, Shadows,” “Safety” Script Deals

A bunch of script deals have been going down in the last few days ahead of the Sundance Film Festival launching shortly in Park City.

Thigns kicked off when Broad Green acquired “The Perfect Guy” writer Tyger Williams’ script pitch “Bad Influence”. The story follows a single mom who faces off against her son’s ex-girlfriend after a passionate romance turns to obsession. Jennifer Gibgot and Adam Shankman will produce.

Next up, Wildhorse Studios announced they are teaming with Macmillan Publishers to develop a TV series adaptation of the Isaac Bashevis Singer novel “Shadows on the Hudson” with filming to begin later this year. The story follows a group of prosperous Jewish exiles in New York City during the late 1940s and a romance between one man’s daughter and his best friend that threatens to turn their community upside down.

Finally, Escape Artists have optioned Wallace Stegner’s critically acclaimed 1987 novel “Crossing To Safety” and have hired David Bloomfield to pen the film adaptation of the semi-autobiographical work. The story follows two academic couples who meet in Wisconsin and follows their marriages and friendship over the course of several decades.
