Universal Has Reason for Its "Unnatural Selection"



Universal Pictures has struck deal with new writer Cameron Fay to bring his spec script "Unnatural Selection" to the big screen.

Seemingly aiming to draw in more female audience, Universal Pictures is on the move to develop a romantic comedy entitled "Unnatural Selection" of which script it has successfully purchased from new writer Cameron Fay, who also lands a deal that calls for him to direct.

The flick's story is said to focus on an underachiever who picks up women out of his league by befriending them to then find his match in an old female pal from college who is a divorced woman with one child. No word yet on cast lineup, but it is revealed that Mary Parent and Scott Stuber will both produce via their company Stuber/Parent.

In related news, Universal is also reported to develop another picture called "Slap Shot" as a remake of the 1997 film of the same title. The studio has already appointed "The Girl Next Door" scribe Stuart Blumberg to pen the script with an eye to entice a Matthew McConaughey or an Eddie Murphy type actor to step in.
