Studio purchases Schoolcraft, Simons script
Disney has made a preemptive six-figure purchase of “All About Adam,” a spec script by Alan Schoolcraft and Brent Simons. Scott Rudin will produce the project.
Spec follows the biblical Adam as he trails Eve to modern-day Gotham after they have a lover’s quarrel. Adam discovers Satan was behind the breakup.
Deal marks the second significant spec sale for the writers; DreamWorks Animation previously snatched up “Mastermind.” That project has Ben Stiller attached to produce, with Cameron Hood and Kyle Jefferson to direct. They helmed the DreamWorks Animation 3-D short “First Flight.”
