Blacklist Scribe to Write ‘True Skin’ for Warner Bros. (EXCLUSIVE)

Pic is being produced by Heyday Films.

Tucker Parsons has been set to adapt the Warner Bros. sci-fi pic “True Skin.”

Pic is based on the short film helmed by Stephan Zlotescu set in the near future where augmentation is the way of life. Zlotescu is also expected to helm this version as well.

Jeff Clifford will produce with John Fischer overseeing for Heyday Films along with Raymond Brothers and Scott Glassgold of IAM Entertainment. Jon Berg will oversee for the studio.

Parsons has had an interesting career path as he is still serving as the creative director and exec VP at movie marketing agency Ignition Creative. During his down time, Parsons took the opportunity to begin screenwriting and before long was on the most recent Blacklist for his spec “Whalemen.”

“Whalemen” follows the leader of a 14th century Scottish whaling village who must seek out and do battle with a whale many times larger than any he has seen in order to ransom back his son from the occupying English. Given the interest among studios to follow the  adventures of a hero doing battle with these larger than life creatures, “Whalemen” looks to be something that could pick up steam quick on the spec market.

Parsons is repped by WME, Madhouse Entertainment and attorney Matt Sugarman.
