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.

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