Variety reports that DreamWorks has purchased the spec screenplay The Escort from writer Justin Adler (Better Off Ted).

The script, which is a road-trip comedy, has been set up with producer Tom McNulty (The Rocker).

The story follows "an irresponsible airline steward who is forced to escort a 14-year-old to Boston when the plane is grounded for engine trouble."

DreamWorks beat out such studios as Universal and Original Film for the rights to this project.
