Wibberleys to pen ‘Spy’

Scribes to adapt TV series for Col

Cormac and Marianne Wibberley, the husband-and-wife writing team that penned the original screenplay for the Sony-Phoenix Pictures production “The Sixth Day,” starring Arnold Schwarzenegger, will next write Columbia Pictures’ feature adaptation of the 1960s TV series “I Spy.”

Col has high hopes of updating the property into an action-comedy franchise.

In the original 1965-68 series, Bill Cosby and Robert Culp played wise-cracking American espionage agents Alexander Scott and Kelly Robinson, respectively. In the original, the pair had unique cover stories: Robinson was a former Princeton law student, Davis Cup tennis player and Rhodes scholar; Scott was his trainer as well as a language expert.

The Wibberleys first gained attention with “Sixth Day,” which is due out next fall.

The writers are repped by UTA.
