20th Century Fox has acquired Patrick Melton and Marcus Dunstan‘s, pictured, pitch Outliers for Peter Chernin to produce, says THR.
The writers, best known for writing Feast, Saw IV, V, VI and VII, have become a hot commodity among the studios, landing such high-profile gigs as God of War, which Universal Pictures is moving quickly on, and Rise for Warner Bros. as well as a two-month rewrite job on Pacific Rim on set with Guillermo del Toro.
The idea for Outliers, which is dubbed as a supernatural action film, came from David Karlak, who is attached to direct.
Plot details are being kept under wraps.
Underground’s Trevor Engelson is producing alongside Chernin, Mike Larocca and Jenno Topping. Jason Young is overseeing the project for Fox.
