Sony Pictures has acquired the spec screenplay Leviathan from Cole Haddon, the creator of NBC's Dracula TV series.

No plot details have been released, although it is said to be a sci-fi thriller which will be produced by Neal H. Moritz and executive produced by Toby Ascher.

Cole Haddon has written two features for Sony Pictures that are currently in development, Dodge & Twist and Savage Planet, which we first reported on back in February 2013. Dodge & Twist is set 20 years after the Charles Dickens classic Oliver Twist, following Oliver and the Artful Dodger as adults, on opposite sides of the law, as they become ensnared in a plot to steal the Crown Jewels. We first reported on Savage Planet in April 2012, although no story details have surfaced.

Neal H. Moritz is coming off the hit comedy sequel 22 Jump Street, and he is also producing a number of other upcoming features such as Fast & Furious 7 and Goosebumps.
