Universal Pictures acquires real-life drama spec script "All My Life" written by Todd Rosenberg. From THR:
Todd Rosenberg wrote the script, based on the story of Solomon Chau and Jennifer Carter, who were planning to be married on Aug. 21, 2015. Instead, that ended up being the day of Chau's funeral.
The couple, who had been planning their wedding since April 2014, found out that Chau had liver cancer in December that year. To make sure they got the wedding of their dreams, they moved the date up to April 11, 2015, and they raised more than $ 52,000 for the Toronto wedding through a GoFundMe account. They were married for four months before he died.
The film will focus on the love, life and laughter that circle a young couple as they plan their wedding in the face of devastating news.
Rosenberg is repped by Gersh and Kaplan/Perrone.
By my count, this is the 24th spec script deal in 2017.
There were 16 spec script deals year-to-date in 2016.
This represents a 33% increase in deals this year compared to last.
