Studio captures Sobel script

Columbia Pictures has bought the disaster spec “Animals” from first-time writer and former criminal lawyer Mike Sobel.

Neal Moritz is producing through his Sony-based Original Film shingle.

Contemporary-set story chronicles what happens when all the world’s animals turn on humans and take back the planet.

Sobel, who was practicing law in New York, moved to Los Angeles a year ago to pursue a writing career and penned “Animals,” his first screenplay. Deal is pegged at mid-six figures.

Trevor Engelson and Nick Osbourne are executive producing.
