Wait a minute, help may be on the way for uninsured Julia Wertz! Andrea McCloud’s script based on I SAW YOU, the book she edited, has been picked up by DreamWorks after a bidding war for somewhere in the neighborhood of $500,000.
Company ponied up mid-six figures for the romantic comedy pitch, which sparked a heated bidding war involving Screen Gems and New Line, among others.
George Tillman (“Notorious”) is attached to direct the project, which involves four intersecting love stories;and his State Street shingle is onboard to produce.
Now before you say Julia is buying the brews from here on out, note the bidding war was for McCloud’s script, not an option. But let’s hope some of that moolah will trickle down to Wertz.
