Sony secures ‘Smith’ spec

Pic to be produced through Mosaic Media

Sony has bought spec script “This Bill Smith,” which Jimmy Miller is producing through Mosaic Media Group and Gold/Miller.

Script, written by Ben Brandstrater and Jon Sadowski, is about a 60-year-old cancer patient who gets paired up with a 30-year-old cancer buddy who’s an even bigger pain in the ass than he is.

Miller is producing. Exec producing are Chris Bender, Charlie Gogolak and JC Spink.

Gogolak, Spink and agent David Boxerbaum met the writers — who are waiters at the Griddle Cafe on Sunset — when the three were having breakfast there last month.

Mosaic produced Universal’s upcoming Will Ferrell laffer “Kicking and Screaming” and is teaming up with Sony on another Ferrell pic, “Talladega Nights,” which Adam McKay is directing.
