Warners seizes 'Invaders' spec from Rothwell
EmptyWarner Bros. Pictures has picked up "Invaders," a spec script from scribe Jayson Rothwell. Basil Iwanyk of Thunder Road is producing along with Mark Williams and Michael Pierce of Pierce/ Williams Entertainment.
The story centers on a thief who is forced by a rogue government agent to retrieve a video of the U.S. president having sex with the wife of an Arab sheik.
Lynn Harris and Matt Reilly are the executives.
Rothwell's deal also includes a blind script option. The scribe's horror script "Kept" is in preproduction at Twisted Pictures. Rothwell is repped by Paradigm as well as Pierce/Williams' management division, Zero Gravity. His attorney is Harris Hartman.
Pierce/Williams produced "The Cooler" and is behind the Demi Moore-Michael Caine starrer "Flawless," which is seeking a distributor.
Iwanyk's Warner-based Thunder Road last produced "We Are Marshall."
