New Line Acquires Untitled Noir Thriller from Writer Allison Burnett
No story details were revealed, although the sensual project is being compared to the 1981 thriller Body Heat. The acquisition is also unique because it comes with no producers or actors attached, which is uncommon in today's Hollywood landscape where studios primarily lean towards package deals. The deal marks his first pitch sale, after making a career from spec screenplay sales and studio assignments.
No production schedule was released for this new untitled project.
