New Line, BenderSpink draw sniper pic ‘R5’

Shingle purchases Sircus' spec script

New Line has taken aim at “R5,” purchasing tyro scribe Jango Sircus’ spec script about dueling snipers and setting it up with BenderSpink partners Chris Bender and J.C. Spink along with Justin Silvera.

Story centers on the human chess match played out on Los Angeles rooftops, triggered by a mysterious series of shootings that prompt the L.A. expert to focus his suspicions on a South African rival long presumed dead.

New Line execs Jeff Katz and George Waud will oversee for the studio.

New Line-based Benderspink produced box office leader “Monster-in-Law” for the studio. The shingle is readying David Cronenberg’s “History of Violence,” which New Line just premiered at Cannes; and “Red Eye” for DreamWorks.
