Fox Searchlight has acquired The Ornate Anatomy of Living Things, a script by screenwriters Matthew Spicer and Max Winkler, according to Variety.
Jason Reitman and his Hard C production company are producing the project, about a New York bookstore clerk who discovers a museum devoted to his life. Peter Principato and Paul Young are executive producing.
Spicer met Winkler, the son of Henry Winkler, in a screenwriting class at USC (University of Southern California); they graduated last year. Winkler has directed episodes of CBS Innertube's Clark and Michael, starring Michael Cera and Clark Duncan.
