Ian Shorr ("Splinter") has been hired to pen the script for a film based on Matthew Power's GQ article "Excuse Us While We Kiss The Sky" at Ineffable Pictures.
The article followed a group of academics and white collar types in Europe who have an interesting night job - they are urban explorers who infiltrate abandoned or under construction off-limit city structures (skyscrapers, metro stations, bomb shelters, etc.)
In particular the piece followed a London-based team which includes the likes of a computer programmer, an ICU doctor, a photographer and a geography academic.
The plan is to use their real-life exploits for a globe-trotting, action-fueled thriller. Raphael Kryszek and Jesse Israel will produce.
