Legendary, Vertigo, Witten to produce thriller

Legendary Pictures has tapped Jayson Rothwell to pen thriller “The Mountain.”

Roy Lee and Doug Davison’s Vertigo Entertainment is producing with Brian Witten via his Witten Pictures banner.

Rothwell recently completed “Fort Knox” and “Invaders” for Warner Bros. and is currently writing “Glass Books of the Dreameaters” for Warner Bros. and Johnny Depp’s Infinitum Nihil banner. “Malice in Wonderland,” which Rothwell penned, is currently filming in the U.K.
