BREAKING: Sony is negotiating a deal for Medieval, a script by Michael Finch and Alex Litvak. Neal Moritz will produce through his Original Film banner, and I’m hearing it’s caught the fancy of Chad Stahelski, the John Wick helmer. David Leitch also will direct.
If this project sounds familiar, it sold over five years ago as a spec to New Regency for high-six against low-seven figures. That company let it go and it was reintroduced on the spec market and kicked up a lot of interest. It’s basically a Dirty Dozen set in the Middle Ages, replete with big action pieces, castles, plagues, the whole deal.
Finch is being repped in the deal by Verve, Litvak by UTA.
