Montecito Pictures and DreamWorks have picked up “The Creepy Kid,” a comedy spec from scribes Ethan Furman and Adam Farasati. Montecito will produce with Magnet Pictures, the production arm of Magnet Management.
The logline is being kept under wraps, though it has been described as “Big Daddy” meets “The Exorcist.”
A blind script deal for the writers also was included.
This is the first studio deal for Furman and Farasati, who hail from Northern California and are bartenders in West Los Angeles.
The duo is repped by Magnet and Hansen Jacobson Teller.
