Ascendant rises to ‘Grounded’
Spec script lands scribe
By DANA HARRIS
Ascendant Pictures has picked up the spec “Grounded” from tyro scribe Paul Davidson.
“Grounded” is the story of an intergalactic dictator who goes undercover as a high school science teacher after crash-landing in Nebraska. Chris Emerson will produce the project with Ascendant principals Chris Roberts, Christopher Eberts and Kia Jam.
Davidson also wrote the book “Consumer Joe: Harassing Corporate America, One Letter at a Time,” which Random House/Broadway published last September.
Ascendant has a financing relationship with VIP Medienfonds Film and Entertainment. Together, they have invested in pics such as “The Jacket” with Adrien Brody, “Edison” starring Kevin Spacey, “The Big White” with Robin Williams and “Lord of War” with Ethan Hawke.
In other news, there isn’t any. Isn’t that enough for one day?
