Sony Acquires Spec ‘Eternal’ for ‘Divergent’ Producer and Michael Costigan (EXCLUSIVE)

Sony Pictures has acquired the spec “Eternal” with Victoria Aveyard rewriting the spec she originally wrote.

“Divergent” producer Pouya Shabazian, Benderspink and Michael Costigan (pictured) are on board to produce.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the film will involve a modern re-interpretation of the Greek god mythology.

The project gives Sony an original property with which the studio can build its own universe with franchise potential.

Hannah Minghella and Rachel O’Connor will oversee for the studio.

Aveyard is repped by Benderspink and New Leaf Literary & Media and her novel “The Red Queen” is currently in development at Universal.
