Gold Circle Films Scores 'Sex on the First Date'

Rookie scribes Sall Grover and Emma Jensen penned the original comedy script.

Gold Circle Films has bought the original screenplay Sex on the First Date from rookie writers Sall Grover and Emma Jensen. The production company paid low six figures for the script.

Grover and Jensen are Australian writing partners and Stateside transplants who detail their L.A. exploits on their blog, thelateamonline.com. The duo recently spun their adventures into a forthcoming novel called The L.A. Team, which Working Title optioned for a TV series late last year. Sex on the First Date unfolds in a When Harry Met Sally... fashion as it explores the longstanding question of whether a solid relationship can result from sex on the first date.

Grover and Jensen are repped by WME and Magnet Management.

Gold Circle recently produced Life As We Know It and The New Daughter. Forthcoming films include Pitch Perfect and The Haunting in Georgia.
