Universal Gets Into a "Worst Case" Scenario

by | May 19, 2005 | Comments

Veteran screenwriters Tom Schulman and Rafael Yglesias have sold their first collaborative effort, "Worst Case," to Universal Pictures following a rather heated bidding frenzy. All we know so far is that "Worst Case" is a crime thriller, but considering the scribes’ respective track records (and Variety‘s report of the bidding war), it should be a title worth keeping an eye on.

For those keeping score at home, Tom Schulman wrote films such as "What About Bob?," "Dead Poets Society" (for which he snagged an Oscar), and "Honey, I Shrunk the Kids." (On the other side of the coin, Mr. Schulman also penned "Holy Man," "8 Heads in a Duffel Bag," and "Welcome to Mooseport.") Mr. Yglesias is the screenwriter behind movies like "Fearless," "Death and the Maiden," "From Hell," the 1998 version of "Les Miserables," and the upcoming "Dark Water."
