Matt O'Neil's latest spec script entitled Bull Rush has been bought by Newmarket Films. According to Variety, Aaron Ryder and Vertigo's Doug Davison and Roy Lee will be producing the project.

The plot revolves around a self-starting man in his late twenties. When he tries to get a foothold in the world of hedge funds, his life slowly starts to unravel. To relieve stress, he joins a local street football team.

Plans are to bring on a director immediately. The film will begin shooting in early 2008.
