'Legion' producer picks up action thriller
Bold Films acquires spec from Doug Cook, David Weisberg
March 21, 2010, 11:00 PM ET
"Slate," described as a female-oriented take on "The Bourne Identity," involves the CIA which, in order to investigate a murdered female agent, implants the agent's memories into the damaged brain of a female convict. The agent's lethal abilities also are implanted, and soon the convict goes rogue to discover the truth about the murder.
Cook and Weisberg, repped by CAA and Benderspink, have "Greenbacks" in development at Fox and wrote the Stan Lee project "Nick Ratchett" at Disney.
International sales on the film will be handled by Affinity, the foreign sales company jointly owned by Bold and OddLot Entertainment.
Bold recently financed and produced "Legion," the apocalyptic thriller directed by Scott Stewart and released by Screen Gems. It's reteaming with Stewart for "Psy-Ops," an action thriller now in development.
