Echo Lake nabs medieval action script ‘Man at Arms’

CAMELOTEcho Lake, one of the companies behind the David Duchovny-Demi Moore indie “The Joneses,” has nabbed the medieval action script “Man at Arms” from Jeremy Lott.

Echo Lake’s Doug Mankoff and Andy Spaulding will produce with Brucks Entertainment’s Bryan Brucks and Aperture Entertainment’s Adam Goldworm.

Plot details are being kept under wraps, but “Arms” focuses on Lancelot and his adventures after the breakup of Camelot.

Echo Lake is hoping to attract a filmmaker that can give the movie a distinct visual style.

The company also is looking at “Arms” as a step into larger commercial projects, continuing a path begun with “The Ward,” a ghost thriller directed by John Carpenter and starring Amber Heard that is in postproduction. It also is developing action script “The Prince,” by Jeremy Passmore and Andre Fabrizio, to act as Carpenter’s follow-up.

Aperture is in preproduction with MPCA on “Sex Ed” starring Haley Joel Osment. It is developing “The Last Witch Hunter” at Summit and “The Brood” at Spyglass, with Breck Eisner directing.

Lott wrote the script as a spec that made the rounds, and while it initially didn’t sell, it got him an assignment to adapt, with “Priest” writer Cory Goodman, the IDW comic “Lore” that’s being produced by Andrew Lazar.

Lott is repped by Paradigm and Aperture.
