Zenga gets sci-fier back on track
NEW YORK — Screenwriter Bo Zenga has just about realized the logline of his sci-fi pitch “Time Jumpers.”
The story is about a group of government agents who fight crime by traveling back in time to observe and record felonies being committed. Zenga sold the pitch a year ago to Paramount and Cruise-Wagner Prods.; they subsequently let the project go, and yesterday Zenga relived the past by setting up the pic again, this time at DreamWorks.
Zenga is producing a swarm of projects around town, such as “Doomsday” at MGM; the remake of “Piranha” at Fox Family; and “The It Girl” at Paramount. He is also writing and producing “As Time Goes By” at WB.
Zenga’s William Morris agent Alan Gasmer and attorney Mary Sullivan had DreamWorks battling New Regency for the sale. Margaret French Isaacs is the DW exec who brought in the pitch.
