Rewrite for Legendary’s ‘Spectral’

Jayson Rothwell to rework script for supernatural thriller

Looking to breathe some new life into a project it’s high on, Legendary Pictures has brought Jayson Rothwell to rewrite the supernatural thriller “Spectral.”

Ian Fried wrote the original draft of the pic, described as a supernatural “Black Hawk Down.” Remaining plot details are being kept under wraps.

Though the project does not even have producers, sources say Legendary Pictures founder and chief, Thomas Tull loves the concept and is very much behind getting this film up and running.

Jillian Zaks and Alex Hedlund are overseeing for Legendary, which is expected to fast-track the project with the intention of releasing the film in 2014.

Given the supernatural theme, Tull’s interest is no surprise; Legendary has produced genre pics including the upcoming “Godzilla,” “The Great Wall” and “Pacific Rim.”

As for Rothwell, the WME-repped scribe has several projects in development including “The White Devil” and “Invaders.”
