Newbie screenwriter makes six-figure deal

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

Screenwriter Jason Sullivan is probably somewhere whooping it up and I don’t blame him one bit. Sullivan sold a comedy pitch to Columbia Pictures for real money, six-figures according to reports. This is his first screenplay sale.

The Sullivan comedy is about three friends in their 30s who try to make up for an experience they missed — summer camp.  So they rent a camp and invite some adult friends to share the fun.

Sullivan reportedly has been kicking around town, writing spec scripts and holding down several jobs. His car is in such bad shape it dies if you push it over 45 miles per hour.

Asked what he will do with his script paycheck, he said “… pimp my car.”

More about Sullivan and his deal on the Hollywood Reporter   website.
