DreamWorks has preemptively purchased Lars Jacobson’s C.O.D. action-thriller spec and set it up with Barry Josephson of Josephson Entertainment and Neal Flaherty of Royal Prospect, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The story centers on a New York City bike messenger who becomes a puppet in an assassin’s deadly game, forced to deliver bombs to save his family’s life. A female FBI agent with a vendetta against the villain must work outside the system to catch the messenger and solve the case before it takes on global implications.
Josephson produced Enchanted and is currently in production on They Came From Upstairs for Fox. Josephson Entertainment VP Danica Radovanov will executive produce.
Jacobson also wrote, directed and produced horror thriller Baby Blues, with Andy Meyer also producing.
