'Relativity' in Walden family


Walden Media has optioned Peter Craig's spec script "Relativity."

The story follows the Fergusons, who on the eve of their 35th wedding anniversary bring their children together to tell them a secret that sends shock waves throughout the household and sets off a series of humorous and moving events.

The script was brought to the company by vp development Evan Turner, who will oversee the project for Walden.

Craig's short film "Nevel Is the Devil" made its debut at the 2006 South by Southwest Film Festival and has screened at U.S. festivals. The short, a comedy in which a supervisor at a consumer product testing laboratory interrogates prank suspects, is an excerpt of Craig's feature-length script "Green" that was part of this year's Sundance writer-director lab. "Green" is in active development and would mark Craig's feature film directorial debut. Producing are Rachel Williams of Spaceman X Prods. and Diana Williams of Exit 5 Entertainment.

Craig is repped by Paradigm and David Matlof of Hirsch.
