BREAKING: Paramount Pictures has acquired Patrol, a Jayson Rothwell spec script that Stefan Sonnenfeld will produce through his banner Sunnyfield Productions.

When a U.S. Marines patrol chases drug smugglers to a remote island, their mission takes an unexpectedly deadly twist. Sonnenfeld is founder and president of the post-production house Company 3, and he will produce through Sunnyfield. They will run it through Paramount’s Insurge label and are discussing a fast track to production. He has done post-production work on everything from Transformers, Star Trek, Cloverfield and Alice In Wonderland to the Pirates Of The Caribbean franchise.

Rothwell is writing Spectral for Legendary, and scripted Invaders and Fort Knox for Warner Bros, and Snow White And The Seven for Disney. Sarah Perlman has been overseeing the development of the project for Sunnyfield. Rothwell and Sonnenfeld are repped by WME.
