Warners takes ‘Road Home’

Warner Bros. picked up the spec “The Road Home” from Houston playwright Tom Vaughan for an undisclosed sum. Matthew McConaughey and his partner Gus Gustawes are expected to produce the property through their Warner Bros.-based j.k. livin’ production company.

“Road Home” is a drama set in L.A. and Texas that concerns a young lothario’s redemption after a near-death experience. Production exec Basil Iwanyk at WB brought the project into the studio.

Jim Wedda, who developed the property with Vaughan, will also produce the project. Wedda and Vaughan also collaborated on the latter’s first script, “Nine Lives,” an actioner that was purchased by Spelling Films about a year ago.

Vaughan is repped by David Styne at Creative Artists Agency and managed by Jeff Graup and Todd Berger. His attorney is Doug Stone.
