A second big spec script sale just landed.
Legendary has picked up Reminiscence, a sci-fi thriller by Lisa Joy, a writer and co-producer on TV’s Burn Notice.
No producers are attached as the script went straight to buyers and sources say the script sold in the seven-figure range.
Alex Hedlund will oversee production for Legendary.
No plot details are being revealed, but it does fall in Legendary’s tentpole-sized genre fare wheelhouse.
Additionally, the project will fall under its distribution deal with Universal.
Joy worked on TV’s Pushing Daisies on top of Burn Notice and is next working on Westworld for HBO and Jonathan Nolan. She is repped by UTA and Bloom Hergott.
The deal follows Universal’s pricey pickup over the weekend of the spec Section 6, which was also in the low seven-figure range.
