Oscar-winning Juno screenwriter Diablo Cody has been hired to write an untitled comedy script for DreamWorks Pictures that is based on an original idea by Steven Spielberg.
Variety says the studio is keeping story details under such tight wraps that even dealmakers involved with the project were in the dark. There are no producers yet attached.
The project marks the second time the pair have collaborated. Cody wrote the pilot and is executive producing Showtime series “The United States of Tara,” also based on an original idea from Spielberg.
