Spec Sci-fi/Thriller Script Aether Acquired by FilmNation
Word on a new spec script that was just acquired by FilmNation landed online today, and we have the very sketchy early details on the sci-fi/thriller known as Aether.
Per Deadline, FilmNation Entertainment will produce, finance, and handle worldwide sales on the sci-fi thriller Aether, written by Krysty Wilson-Cairns. FilmNation is moving quickly, already looking for a director for the British writer’s script.
Plot details are currently being kept under wraps, but FilmNation is obviously quite high on it. "I’m astounded by the level of talent and inventiveness we’ve come across from such a young voice," said FilmNation production president Aaron Ryder. "We’re terribly excited to produce this film. We’re also anxious to learn how to pronounce its title!"
Wilson-Cairns initially developed the script with her UK agent and then finished it on spec. It was brought in by FilmNation Director of Development Patrick Chu. Ryder, along with EVP Karen Lunder, will shepherd the project. The deal was done by FilmNation’s Alison Cohen and United Agents’ Marnie Podos and attorney Tara S. Kole.
"I am absolutely thrilled to be working alongside such a talented group of like-minded people," said Wilson-Cairns. "FilmNation makes the kind of movies I love to watch, and I am so pleased we’ve put Aether into their safe hands."
Look for more on this one should it be deemed Dread-worthy.
