Miramax inks ‘Airtight’ deal with scribes

Film is based on 1939 sea rescue

Miramax Films has closed a deal with scribes T.J. Scott and Kevin Lund for their spec script “Airtight.” The duo will be paid low- against mid-six figures.

Miramax’s Bob Osher, co-president of production, and exec Jennifer Wachtel will oversee the project for the studio.

Based on a true story, “Airtight” centers on the U.S.S. Squalis, which sank in 1939 off the Russian coast but not before a trapped U.S. sailor was rescued.

The scribes previously penned the HBO pic “Black Top,” which was directed by Scott, whose helming credits include episodes of “La Femme Nikita,” “Xena,” “Hercules,” “Kung Fu,” “Robocop” and “Top Cops.”

Scott and Lund are repped by the Gersh Agency and Karl Austen at Armstrong, Hirsch, Jackoway, Tyerman & Wertheimer. For Miramax, deal was negotiated by Vicki Cherkas, senior veep of business and legal affairs.
