According to Variety, Universal and Working Title have acquired Worst Case, a crime thriller spec script by Rafael Yglesias and Tom Schulman.

Working Title won the script in competitive bidding that pushed the price into the high six figures. The project marks the first collaboration between the two vet scribes.

Schulman's credits include Dead Poets Society (for which he won an Oscar), Honey, I Shrunk the Kids and What About Bob?

Yglesias' credits include this summer's horror pic Dark Water, From Hell and the 1998 adaptation of Les Miserables, starring Liam Neeson.
