CBS Films has optioned Omega Point, a sci-fi spec script from newcomer Cameron Alexander.
Sidney Sherman, a co-producer on the 2006 John Travolta thriller Lonely Hearts, is on board to produce via his Rosa Entertainment banner.
The story centers on a young man who comes across a mysterious crash site in the woods where he discovers and befriends a god-like artificial intelligence agent desperate to escape earth.
Execs Mark Ross and Alex Ginno are overseeing the project for CBS Films.
Omega is the first sale for the 25-year-old Alexander, a budding music video director (one of the videos under his belt is Cry Wolf from Kristinia DeBarge, the daughter of ’80s pop singer James DeBarge). Alexander eventually wants to direct what he writes, but for now, he knows that writing is the way to make the inroads.
He is repped by Resolution, Rosa Entertainment and McKuin Frankel.
