Rothman Has Something at Universal


Universal Pictures has preemptively acquired Rodney Rothman’s pitch The Something, reports Variety.

Rothman, who was the youngest head writer in the history of “Late Night With David Letterman,” will write and produce the film.

The story, which the studio is keeping under wraps, is described as an ensemble comedy/horror hybrid set in deep space, similar in tone to Sony’s Zombieland.
