Fox Atomic is about to develop a comedy feature entitled "Captain Awesome" from Mike Arnold and Chris Poole's spec script.
Taking the same path as New Line Cinema did with "Multiple Mary" and "Birth Mother", Fox Atomic has also secured rights to a comedy pitch from writers Mike Arnold and Chris Poole titled "Captain Awesome" and will develop it into the big screen under its banner.
Though it is understood that the project will involve a superhero element, plot of the spec script is still being kept under wraps for now. In the meantime, it has been revealed that Mark O'Connor is set to serve as the film's producer.
Both practicing lawyers who write at night, Arnold and Poole previously have made a successful attempt to sell their spec script "The Grackle" to New Line Cinema which is set to develop it with Matthew McConaughey starring.
