Carlton Cuse to pen ‘San Andreas: 3D’

New Line recruits 'Lost' vet to script quake pic

New Line Cinema has tapped Carlton Cuse to pen its earthquake disaster movie “San Andreas: 3D.”

Project has been in development since last year with New Line-based Beau Flynn attached to produce with Tripp Vinson; Brad Peyton is attached to direct.

Story takes place when a massive quake strikes California and centers on one man who must make the treacherous journey across the state to rescue his estranged daughter. Allan Loeb previously worked on the project afer the team of Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio sold the pitch and wrote the first two drafts.

Cuse, repped by WME, was co-showrunner for six seasons on ABC’s global hit “Lost.” He’s now exec producing the drama series “Bates Motel” for A&E.

Flynn’s credits include “Journey 2: The Mysterious Island,” “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “The Rite” and “Red Dawn,” which FilmDistrict has set for a Nov. 21 launch. He’s also developing a third “Journey” pic for New Line.

New Line execs Sam Brown and Michael Disco are overseeing the “San Andreas” project.
