Warner Bros Acquires ‘Cloaked’ For Robert And Susan Downey’s Team Downey Label

1 May 2014 11:02 AM, PDT | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

Exclusive: Warner Bros has acquired Cloaked, a pitch that will be scripted by Derek Connolly and will be produced by Warners-based Team Downey partners Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey. The pitch is based on an idea by Robert Downey Jr., and the Downeys developed the concept with the writer before bringing it to the studio. They’re keeping the logline under wraps, but it’s a supernatural horror comedy in the vein of An American Werewolf In London, which perfectly threaded the needle combining laughs and scares. Connolly has been writing huge movies. His last two credits, Jurassic World and Monster Trucks, are currently in production at Universal and Paramount, respectively. Connolly did substantial rewrites on each of those projects. Team Downey’s Amanda Burrell will oversee the project with Warner Bros execs Cate Adams and Jon Berg. The scribe is repped by Verve, 3 Arts, and attorney Lev Ginsburg. »
