Disney has paid low- against mid-six figures in a preemptive bid for Sara Endsley’s spec script “We Are Family,” to be produced by Storyline Entertainment, and low six figures for the spec script “Maid of Honor” for Mouse House-based production shingle Gunn Films to produce.
“Family” is an offbeat romantic comedy concerns a young woman, the black sheep of her family, who decides to kidnap a guy at gunpoint in order to attend her regular family Thanksgiving with the perfect date. Endsley is repped by Original Artists and managed by Octane Entertainment.
Brian Winfrey-penned “Honor” is a high-concept action-comedy about a female James Bond-type FBI agent who goes back to her small hometown for her sister’s wedding when chaos ensues. Zach Tann of Zide/Perry found the project, which was part of a script magazine contest, and repped it and Winfrey for the deal.
