Ben Pugh and Rory Aitken's London-based production company 42 has optioned Rob Yescombe's sci-fi spec script "Outside the Wire," TheWrap has learned.
"Outside the Wire" will be a co-production between 42 and Chris Ferguson's Canadian company Odd Fellows Entertainment.
Pugh, Aitken and Ferguson will produce the film, while Brian Kavanaugh-Jones ("Sinister") will executive produce via Automatik, a joint venture between E1 Entertainment and IM Global.
Producers are keeping the logline under wraps for now.
Yescombe is a well-known writer in the videogame world, though "Outside the Wire" is his first spec sale. He's repped by UTA and Energy Entertainment.
