Castle Rock Entertainment has purchased J. Mills Goodloe's pitch Seventy-Two Days in a preemptive bid.
Variety says the romantic drama centers on a Wall Street trader who is convicted of insider trading and must report to a minimum-security prison in 72 days. With his career destroyed and loss of freedom looming, he faces difficult choices when he falls in love for the first time.
Goodloe continues his relationship with Castle Rock, which earlier this year bought his spec script Find.Love.Frost.
Castle Rock has a first-look deal with Warner Bros. Pictures, where Seventy-Two Days will likely land.
