Voltage Pictures Acquires Black List Script ‘The Search’
Voltage Pictures has acquired Spencer Mondshein’s script “The Search,” with Voltage’s Nicolas Chartier and Craig J. Flores producing along with Sherryl Clark at Busted Shark Productions.
Babacar Diene is overseeing the project on behalf of Voltage with Bill Karesh overseeing on the Busted Shark side.
Voltage Pictures will handle worldwide distribution for the picture.
The script, which made the Black List and Hit List last year, centers on an expert tracker who battles his demons while on a journey to rescue his estranged older brother, who has vanished in the wilderness of the Northwest.
The sale marks the first of Mondshein’s career; prior to penning the script he worked on the set of “Boardwalk Empire.”
Besides being the son of Academy editor Andrew Mondshein and producer Leslie Holleran, Mondshein took notes on his first script from “Boardwalk Empire” director Allen Coulter over the course of his time with the show.
Mondshein is repped by APA, Management 360, and Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal.
Voltage Pictures has several films in the works including “Father and Daughters” starring Russell Crowe and “Pay the Ghost” starring Nicolas Cage.
