Warner Bros. has purchased a pitch for a script titled “Man Made” from freshman writing team Milo Addica and Will Rokos — along with a blind script commitment for a future screenplay — in an overall deal worth low against mid-six figures, according to sources close to the project.
Chuck Roven and Richard Suckle of Atlas Entertainment will produce “Man Made,” which sources described as a character-driven action story. WB exec Tom Lassally is shepherding the project at the studio.
Addica and Rokos have generated buzz around the town with their spec script “Monsters Ball.” Both are former actors making the jump to the literary life.
Under the blind script agreement backing the “Man Made” deal, Addica and Rokos will pitch and pen at least one more screenplay for Warners.
Atlas produced the Warner Bros. film “City of Angels,” starring Nicolas Cage and Meg Ryan, slated for release April 10.
Addica and Rokos are repped by their agent Lucy Stille at Paradigm and by attorney Jodi Peikoff. The writing team is also managed by Atlas’ management division.
