Col’s ‘Cool’ goes to school

Scribe Sabeti sells spec for mid-six figures

Columbia Pictures has bought the spec “The Art of Cool” by scribe Alex Sabeti for mid-six figures. Mosaic Media is producing.

Pic is a high school comedy that centers on a geeky student who discovers the classic book “The Art of War,” by Sun Tzu, and literally uses it as a survival guide for navigating the social politics of high school.

Eric Gold is producing for Mosaic. George Gatins is overseeing for Mosaic. Ange Gianetti will shepherd the project for Col.

Project is Sabeti’s first screenplay, which he wrote while temping at a finance company.
