Atlas snags date pitch

Andrew Wilder, a 22-year-old film school student at USC, has sold a pitch about a group of recent college graduates and the ups and downs of dating to Atlas Entertainment, which is now based at Warner Bros.

The pitch, tentatively titled “Dating Satan,” was sold in the low six figures to Atlas, the Charles Roven/Dawn Steel company that came into the Warner Bros. fold with the merger of Time Warner and Turner Broadcasting Co.

The project follows four characters and their ordeals.

Wilder is taking a semester off to write the script. Atlas VP of production Richard Suckle brought the script to Atlas.

Last year, Wilder won USC’s Jack Nicholson Award for his script “East Side Story,” a romantic drama set in New York. He was one of the youngest winners of the award. The William Morris Agency is currently packaging that screenplay in its indie division.

“After reading the script ‘East Side Story,’ and convincing me he had more than his share of horrible dates, I knew he was the right guy to write this movie,” Suckle said.

Wilder is repped by Ramses IsHak,Rob Carlson and Alan Gasmer at William Morris and attorney Robert Offer.
