U, Title working ‘Case’

Project marks first collaboration between two vet scribes

Universal and Working Title have acquired “Worst Case,” a crime thriller spec script by Rafael Yglesias and Tom Schulman.

Working Title won the script in competitive bidding that pushed the price into the high six figures.

Project marks the first collaboration between the two vet scribes.

Schulman’s credits include “Dead Poets Society” (for which he won an Oscar), “Honey, I Shrunk the Kids” and “What About Bob?”

Yglesias’ credits include this summer’s horror pic “Dark Water,” “From Hell” and the 1998 adaptation of “Les Miserables,” starring Liam Neeson.

Working Title co-chairs Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner will produce the pic, which prexy Liza Chasin will oversee for the shingle.
