The reportedly $1 million dollar pitch was given by The Proposal screenwriter Peter Chiarelli, and involves Bullock's character, a criminal, being escorted by Reynolds' US Marshall character to court, but they're ambushed along the way and forced to go on the lam. So, you know, The Bounty Hunter, but different? I guess? I can only imagine there will be a hilarious scene where they have to share a hotel room and fight over who gets the bed!
Going for The Proposal trifecta, Universal Pictures is also trying to get that film's director, Anne Fletcher, on board for this. As much as I'd rather load up The Last Detail on Instant Watch, I can't argue with this being a sound, if not incredibly creative business decision, as our Screened.com page on The Proposal shows it raked in $317,375,031 worldwide. That...is a lot of money.
