Studio options Passmore's thriller

Rogue Pictures has optioned Jeremy Passmore’s thriller spec “Summer’s End” for Michael Bay’s Platinum Dunes to produce.

Passmore’s penning a rewrite of the project as part of the low-six-figure deal.

Platinum Dunes’ Bay, Andrew Form and Brad Fuller will produce; the company’s Matt Smith is co-producing.
