Lieberman to oversee development of e-mystery

Hyde Park Entertainment has purchased “Running Out of Time,” a mystery-thriller pitch with an e-mail hook, from writer Michael Wright (“Dangerous Attraction”) for low- against mid-six figures.

Tale centers around a young employee at an Internet company who begins getting mysterious e-mails from himself in the future, warning of impending doom. When the young man is blamed for a murder he didn’t commit, his mysterious e-mails are the sole hope of salvation.

Hyde Park’s David Hoberman and Ashok Armitraj will produce the pic, along with John Jacobs and Bob Kosberg. Hyde Park veep Todd Lieberman will oversee development.

Wright, who is penning a screenplay based on his pitch, is repped by Peter Turner of the Peter Turner Agency.
