EXCLUSIVE: Long live the spec script! Lionsgate just bought Endangered, a spec script by Ryan Belenzon and Jeffrey Gelber for Lionsgate/Summit with Alli Shearmur producing. It’s an action-adventure script about a team of scientists on a mission to find the fountain of youth. This might be the first spec script deal of the year and comes along just when I was thinking that specs were on the endangered list. The writers, who were recently Nicholls finalists, also have Clarity, a character-driven sci-fi piece set up at BonaFide and are producing Dito Montiel’s Boulevard, which has Robin Williams set to star. They are repped by Paradigm, Zero Gravity and attorney Ryan Nord.
