    Love the picture of the mouse in the bottle. (Hoping the mouse was OK and let go.) Update: the mouse pic has been removed.

    Potential new project

    Matt and Chris Moore are interested in obtaining a new spec script - from Deadline (and what about the Ben partnership?):

    http://www.deadline.com/2011/05/father-daughter-time-bidding-heats-up/

    There's a hot spec script that has the town hot and bothered. I'm told that Father Daughter Time: A Tale of Armed Robbery and Eskimo Kisses has five bids on the table and a deal is expected to close by tonight. The script by Matthew Aldrich is about a man who goes on the lam with his daughter, his accomplice on a 3-state crime spree. I'm told that offers have been made by Warner Bros, Paramount, Relativity Media, Walter Parkes through his discretionary fund, and Matt Damon and Chris Moore, through a company with money raised through a private investor. CAA, Jewerl Ross and attorney Jamie Feldman are handling the sale.
