Talk about writing to fit a small budget; Variety reports that newbie scribes Sean Wathen and Josh Dobkin just sold their first script to Stone Village. The film is called The Field and is set in an endless field where a group of strangers wake up with seemingly random items scattered about. They’re then tasked with finding a way out of the field.
Benderspink is executive producing the script with Stone Village producing and financing. Location’s going to be pretty easy; just find a big goddamn field and hope it doesn’t rain. Often.
Dobkin’s day job is art department coordinator for “Scrubs” while Wathen is production secretary for “House”, so the two are already fully ensconced in the ways of Hollywood. Now we just have to hope that the execution of their script is a bit more exciting than its outline!
