Summit buys ‘Flesh’ spec script

Hahn adapted from teen ghost tale 'Light'

Summit Entertainment has purchased spec scriptIn the Flesh,” which Kristin Hahn adapted from the teen ghost tale “A Certain Slant of Light.”

Hahn will produce along “The Twilight Saga” producers Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey through their Temple Hill shingle.

The novel, by Laura Whitcomb, centers on a young woman, dead years 130 on, whose guilt prevents her from going to heaven. She falls in love with another wayward spirit, who shows her how to inhabit a mortal body whose spirit has died.

“We see this as a really beautiful love story with a magical realism element that an audience will really flock to,” Bowen told Variety. “I think it’s going to establish Kristin Hahn as a unique new voice that speaks to the condition of love.” He added that the search for a director will get under way shortly.

Hahn is making a return to writing after a long period of producing, including credits as a co-producer on “The Time Traveler’s Wife” and as an exec producer of “The Departed” and “The Switch,” the latter of which stars producing partner and longtime friend Jennfier Aniston. Hahn is also an exec producer on the breast cancer-themed “Five,” a Lifetime original movie anthology airing Monday, for which Aniston directed a segment.
