A Tester for DreamWorks


DreamWorks and Parkes/MacDonald Productions have acquired the spec script Tester by first-time screenwriter Colin Trevorrow.

The story centers on a young war vet suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder who is recruited for a secret clinical trial that promises to cure his symptoms. He soon discovers that the chip implanted in his brain is not medicine — it is advanced neurotechnology designed to control his body as a weapon of war.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing.
