Sony's Columbia Pictures is on the track to develop high-concept action-adventure for Sam Raimi to produce with Josh Donen through Buckaroo Entertainment.
Maintaining their solid pact after "Spider-Man" films, Sony's Columbia Pictures and Sam Raimi are working together to make a high-concept action-adventure the company has preemptively purchased from scribes Damian Shannon and Mark Swift.
Described as an all-ages fantasy movie with franchise potential that Columbia is hoping to fast track, the project follows a cynical New Yorker as he is forced to go to a land untouched by modern civilization to save a village and a princess from fiendish fairy tale creatures.
While the flick's title is still being kept under wraps, it is learned that Raimi will seat as the producer alongside Josh Donen via their Buckaroo Entertainment. The company is currently in preparation to make "Armored", which Nimrod Antal is directing for Screen Gems and Sony.
