“Savage Planet” Spec Script Sells to Sony

Sony bought its 5th spec script of the year, “Savage Planet.”  The logline for the project is under wraps, but writer Cole Haddon is developing a number of action-adventure and thriller pieces, so it’s probably a safe bet that this latest script falls into that genre.  Last summer, he sold an action-adventure pitch to Timur Bekmambetov’s Bazaelevs Production.  He’s also worked on new twists on the Arabian Nights story and Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde for Warner Bros. and Skydance, respectively. And he’s got “Dracula” in the works at NBC. Pretty good for a guy with no released credits.


Matt Tolmach and Avi Arad are producing “Planet” with Haddon’s reps Alex Goldstone and Bard Dorros at Anonymous Content.  Haddon is also repped by Lars Theriot at ICM.Deadline first reported the sale.
