Warners Lands “Galveston” Disaster Script

Warner Bros. Pictures has picked up scribe Daniel Sussman’s natural disaster-themed original script “Galveston” reports Risky Biz Blog.

The story revolves around September 8th 1900, the day a Category 4 hurricane destroyed the Texan Gulf Coast city and killed 8,000 people – four times the death toll of Hurricane Katrina.

As the time the booming port town was the biggest in the state and never regained that level of prominence. Polly Johnsen, who is also developing the “Excalibur” remake and an adaptation of David Peace’s novel “Occupied City” for Warners, will produce.
