Universal adds scribes to Paul Walker action thriller
production company Laguna Ridge Pictures, which he runs with Brandon Birtell and manager Matt Luber. Willinger and de Blasi penned “Paradise Lost” for Legendary Pictures, which greenlit the project before shutting it down during pre-production due to concerns about the budget. Bradley Cooper and Benjamin Walker had been set to topline. Scribes also wrote Screen Gems’ crime thriller “The Crossing,” which once had Megan Fox attached to star. Willinger and de Blasi are repped by Verve and Madhouse Entertainment.
