Highrise, “Sleep” Score Script Deals

Fox 2000 has picked up “Flightplan” scribe Peter Dowling’s thriller spec script “Highrise”. Jon Shestack (“Air Force One”) is on board to produce.

The story is said to be in the vein of Stephen King’s “Misery,” albeit with the action set within a Manhattan skyscraper.

Meanwhile, Ken Marino & Erica Oyama Marino have been hired to adapt the book “Go The F To Sleep” for Fox 2000 and producer Karen Rosenfelt.

Adam Mansbach penned the children’s book for adults which became a sensation after various actors, notably Samuel L. Jackson, did readings of it that became viral sensations.
