Film News - QED Buys Rights to Yellowstone Falls
Deadline reports that in heated bidding for the spec script by Dan Kunka, QED emerged victorious and acquired Yellowstone Falls. The film will be produced by Kevin Misher, as well as QED’s Bill Block.
Deadline stated "This script is unusual in that it was 52 pages, with few human characters and essentially no dialogue. The action begins after an apocalyptic event that saps the humanity from most of the mutated humans that remain. At its core, it’s the story of a mother wolf, separated from her mate as the rest of the pack flees to safety, is forced to defend her cubs from the oncoming swarm. It sounds like those spare nature-based movies Jean Jacques Annaud makes, with a little genre thrown in. Telling a story like this with almost no dialogue is a real creative challenge, but movies like Gravity and Life Of Pi sounded shaky, too. This will certainly be different."
It will be interesting to watch the progress of this film, as Dan has previously sold spec scripts to Sony and Fox, and most recently his script for Bermuda Triangle to Warner Bros, with Charles Roven and Madhouse producing.
