20th Century Fox acquires comedy spec script “Operation Prince of Freedom” written by Michael Kvamme and Jordan Dunn. From Deadline:
The comedy follows a group of ragtag Marines who are attacked by a Taliban insurgency while escorting a politically incorrect C&W star across Afghanistan. Things take an unexpected turn when the Marines and Taliban alike are forced to unite against an invasion of alien bugs.
The writers are repped by Verve and Mosaic.
By my count, this is the 52nd spec script deal in 2016.
There were 47 spec script deals year-to-date in 2015.
