‘Dragonfly’ lands at UA

United Artists captured itself a “Dragonfly” from scribes Brandon Camp and Mike Thompson for mid- six figures against high-six figures, sources said Thursday.

UA prexy Lindsay Doran outbid Touchstone Pictures for the spec by the two writers, who were both former assistants to producer Scott Rudin.

No talent or producer is attached.

Pic is a spiritual drama about a man dealing with the death of his wife. Instead of letting go, he believes his wife is trying to contact him from the grave and he goes to great lengths to make that happen.

Emile Gladstone of Broder, Kurland, Webb, Uffner Agency brokered the deal for the scribes. Attorney Karl Austen of Armstrong & Hirsch also repped them.

Feature credits for the penmen include three as-yet-unproduced projects: “Double Tyke,” in development with Larry Gordon at Disney; “Sticks and Stones” at Paramount; and the next “Benji” sequel.
