WB nabs Cary actioner

Warner Bros. has picked up the rights to an untitled seafaring action-adventure pitch by screenwriter Alexander Cary for a low-six-figures against mid-six-figures sum.

The pitch was developed by Cary — who will write the screenplay — along with Alan Rich and Tony Ludwig, who will produce.

Warner Bros. execs Michael Andreen and David Bales are credited with bringing in the project about a military infiltration — carried out jointly by the Navy SEALs and the highly trained dolphins of the Navy’s Marine Mammal Program — of a renegade nuclear submarine.

The pitch marks the third project Cary has set up since he came to Hollywood, after spending seven years as a military officer in the Scots Guard, a special forces unit of the British Army. He currently has in development “Target One” with Neufeld/Rehme for Alliance Communications; and “Minuteman,” which he co-wrote with Charlie Fletcher, with Mario Kassar for Paramount.

Cary’s deal was negotiated by Abram Nalibotsky at the Gersh Agency, and his attorney Adam Kaller at Behr & Abramson.
