MTV puts out for 'Sister' pic


MTV Films has pre-emptively bought lawyer-turned-screenwriter Melissa Stack's spec "I Want to ____ Your Sister" for $300,000 against $600,000. Escape Artists is producing the high-concept comedy.

The story chronicles the lengths a big brother will go to protect his sister from guys just like him.

Escape Artists' Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal and Steve Tisch are producing. Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone are executive producing.

"When Jason and I read this, we have not laughed this much ever," Black said. "That's the truth. And we're so excited to be working with MTV. They know how to handle our key demo."

Scott Aversano and Carrie Beck will shepherd the project for MTV Films.

Stack, a lawyer who quit her job after the sale, is repped by Paradigm and managed by Kaplan and Perrone.
