'Junkers' is prized at Fox

Empty

Gil Kenan and John Glenn have some junk to sell.

The duo has sold their original pitch "Junkers" to Fox for an undisclosed amount. Mark Gordon ("10,000 BC") is attached to produce.

The action-adventure had several studios lining up, with Fox taking a pre-emptive strike and securing it, according to those involved in the deal.

Kenan and Glenn will share story credits, with Kenan directing and Glenn penning the script.

Kenan made his directorial debut with the Oscar-nominated animated feature "Monster House" and is in postproduction on "City of Ember" — based on the Jeanne DuPrau adventure novel — for Walden Media and Fox and produced by Tom Hanks' Playtone.

Glenn recently completed his directorial debut on the thriller he wrote, "The Heaven Project," for Sony Pictures. He recently sold his script "Lailoken" to Warner Bros. and penned the screenplay for the upcoming DreamWorks thriller "Eagle Eye," staring Shia LaBeouf.

Kenan, Glenn and Gordon are repped by ICM. (partialdiff)
