"Untitled Hunter Scott Project" Picks up Jacobs as New Writer



Universal Pictures has entrusted Robert Nelson Jacobs to pen "Untitled Hunter Scott Project."

After going through a long development, "Untitled Hunter Scott Project" finally found the proper writer to pen its screenplay. Variety has reported that Robert Nelson Jacobs has been assigned the job by Universal Pictures, the film company that handles the feature.

Going through various rewrites in the past, the project has floated around the studio since 1998 under several considered titles which included "U.S.S. Indianapolis" and "The Good Sailor" with J.J Abrams being considered as its director. Though so, it's still not clear whether the project will be his subsequent picture.

The film's story, based on actual events, tells about a stir Hunter Scott generated after being involved in a research which caused a re-examination of the case of U.S.S. Indianapolis commander Capt. Charles B. McVay III who has been accused for the WWII sinking of the ship and the loss of the sailors. Jacob's version will add a fictional relationship between Scott and an aging survivor of the ship disaster.
