A Movie By Sam Esmail Is in the Works
According to an exclusive in Deadline this week, an inventive movie script written by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail was picked up by STX Entertainment and will be co-produced by Anonymous Content.
Titled Sequels, Remakes and Adaptations, the script made the "Black List" in 2008, joining Inglorious Basterds and Nowhere Boy on a Hollywood insider survey of well-liked screenplays yet to be produced. The log line of the film is enough to pique anyone's curiosity: "A young man is told by an angel that all humans on earth are given 500,000 chances to live a complete and fulfilled life, but finds out that he’s already used up all but his last chance to finally get it right."
Esmail, whose independent film Comet was nominated for Best Feature at the L.A. Film Festival in 2014, has yet to comment on the news but the writer/director said that he was "very close to finally making Sequels, Remakes & Adaptations" in an interview with the AFI back in December.
Production for season two of Mr. Robot is currently underway in New York City, with Esmail directing all 10 episodes, and will premiere on USA Network on Wednesday, Jul. 13 at 10/9c.
