DreamWorks Takes Spec Script ‘Glimmer’ in Bidding War

Carter Blanchard's spec script goes to DreamWorks, which paid mid-six figures

DreamWorks won a bidding war to acquire “Glimmer,” shelling out mid-six figures for Carter Blanchard’s sci-fi spec script.

The plot involves both time travel and found footage, two subjects near and dear to DreamWorks co-founder Steve Spielberg.

Madhouse Entertainment’s Adam Kolbrenner will produce, with the company’s Robyn Meisinger and Ryan Cunningham executive producing.
