Screenwriter Chris McCoy has sold his second project this month to DreamWorks Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter.
The studio picked up Good Looking, an original romantic-comedy script with a novel twist, to go along with an untitled college comedy pitch the studio plucked from McCoy’s portfolio three weeks ago.
In a funky tweak on Minority Report, McCoy’s newest project posits a future dating service that matches soulmates around the world without fail. The story line follows a guy who has the audacity to reject the person chosen for him.
McCoy developed the idea last year while on a working vacation in London, where he noticed the city’s near-universal coverage by surveillance camera to deter crime. He started musing on alternative uses for that collected personal information.
