Love is in the Air in CBS’ ‘The Eternals’

CBS Films has preemptively bought pitch The Eternals, which will reunite the “Never Back Down” team of writer Chris Hauty, director Jeff Wadlow (Cry Wolf) and producer Craig Baumgarten. The deal is pegged at mid- against high-six figures. The plot details of Hauty’s pitch are being kept under wraps, but it is described as a romantic supernatural thriller set on a college campus — can you say meh? Hauty is working on the script, which is expected to be ready in time to be Wadlow’s next project.
