Spyglass handles Nava’s ‘Vandals’

Matt Cirulnick drama follows graffiti artist in N.Y.

Spyglass has committed to a summer start for “Vandals,” a drama that Matt Cirulnick wrote, and on which Jake Nava will make his feature directing debut.

Spyglass’ Roger Birnbaum, Gary Barber and Jonathan Glickman will produce with David McIlvain. Cirulnick will co-produce, and Spyglass’ Adam Rosenberg will also be involved in a producing capacity.

Story follows a budding artist who moves from the Midwest to New York, finding an artistic outlet in the graffiti subculture. The film will take a “Saturday Night Fever”-like look at the growing trend of graffiti gangs that are once again marking up Gotham.

Nava is a prolific director of commercials and musicvideos, the latter of which includes Beyonce’s “Crazy in Love” and the Beyonce-Shakira duet “Beautiful Liar.”

Cirulnick wrote “Vandals” as a spec script that Spyglass quickly turned into a greenlit project. He is also writing the Fox 2000 supernatural thriller “Stones” for director Ridley Scott and the New Regency drama “Elysium.”
