'Nanny Diaries' scribe to write father-son story
Kopelson Entertainment has hired Tiffany Paulsen to write “Rocket Ship.”The production company run by Arnold and Anne Kopelson generated the original idea, about a father and son who move to New Mexico and uncover a large shiny object buried in the desert behind their home. The discovery triggers events beyond their wildest imaginations. The Kopelsons will produce and Ryan Engle will be exec producer. Paulsen’s scripting credits include “The Nanny Diaries” for Warner Bros., and she is writing “Further Adventures in Babysitting” for Disney. Kopelson Entertainment has financed a slate of spec scripts and pitches through its development fund Equus Media. Coin from the fund was used to hire the scribe.
