New Line Hires Badass


New Line has bought Chad Kultgen’s spec script Dan Mintner: Badass for Hire and set up the project with Beau Flynn and Mason Novick producing, reports Variety.

The purchase is the first for New Line since the mini-major was scaled down and absorbed into Warner Bros.

The story centers on a man who’s earned every military award and discovers that his billionaire mentor and father figure has been kidnapped.
