Warner Bros. boards ‘Whales’

Studio snaps up screenplay

Warner Bros. has gotten on board with “Everybody Loves Whales,” snapping up a screenplay by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler with Steve Golin and Michael Sugar producing through their Anonymous Content shingle.

Script is based on the true 1988 tale of the rescue of a trio of California gray whales found under the ice of the Arctic Circle near Barrow, Alaska. Over a two-week period, the U.S. and Soviet governments joined with oil company execs, environmental activists, Eskimos, businessmen and military officers to help free the giant mammals.

Story’s based on the book “Freeing the Whales: How the Media Created the World’s Greatest Non-Event” by Tom Rose.

Amiel and Begler wrote “The Shaggy Dog” for Disney, “The Prince and Me” and “Raising Helen.”
