Another spec script sale to report, the 34th this year, according to Scott Myers over on the Go Into The Story blog. Twentieth Century Fox picked up, “From Mia With Love,” a comedy about three dudes who are eager to part with their virginity. So they send-off for a Russian mail order bride, but as you can probably imagine, things do not work out the way the guys plan.

The screenwriters are Seth Grahame-Smith, Bryan Shukoff, Kevin Chesley, and David Katzenberg who will direct. Katzenberg’s father is DreamWorks big shot, Jeffrey Katzenberg.

Myers is tracking the script sales over on his screenwriting site. He says the spec script market is doing a whole lot better than in 2010. It wasn’t until August 17 that the 34th spec script sold last year. More on this script sale here.

    It took four people to write that?

    Jim,

    Probably and several more might take a shot at the script before the cameras roll on this movie project. That’s Hollywood. Each writer may have brought something different to the screenplay like dialogue, story structure ..etc

    BTW, Seth Grahame-Smith wrote the book and the screenplay for “Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter.” Tim Burton is producing and may direct that film. Makes you wonder what did Grahame-Smith bring to this light comedy about some guys sending off for a mail order bride.
