MGM Heads for Adventures in Zametherea


MGM has bought “Executive VP David M. Murch’s Adventures in Zametherea,” a comedy spec script from the writing team of Michael M.B. Galvin and Peter Speakman, reports Variety.

The project — seen as a modern-day “Wizard of Oz” — has been set up with Rick Benattar (Shoot ‘Em Up), Jim Wedaa and Rick Alexander.

“Zemetherea” centers on a hard-charging, cold-hearted investment banker who gets a chance to revisit the forgotten, magical land of his childhood imagination and must turn for help to his estranged 10-year-old son.
