‘Slime’ Film in Development at Paramount

Jan 16, 2019

Yes, the exact slime you’re thinking of. Paramount Players has acquired ‘Slime,’ a pitch for a family action-adventure film. Writing partners Steve Pink and Jeff Morris will scribe, and Pink will direct. Premise is a slime experiment gone wrong. The product “slime” has long been a staple of sister network Nickelodeon.

This was a last-minute bidding situation, and Paramount Players pre-emptively took it off the table before the holidays. Jeremy Stein brought the project in and met with Morris to discuss. He got it sold immediately on his first week at his new job with Davis Entertainment.

Pink directed the ‘Hot Tub Time Machine’ films and ‘About Last Night’ for Screen Gems. He has been helming TV shows including ‘Cobra Kai and ‘Santa Clarita Diet.’ Also, the upcoming ‘Wayne’ for YouTube. Pink and Morris have projects in development including Failure to Appear and The Yank at Sony. Moreover, there’s ‘Cop Swap’ at MGM. Morris also wrote the Black List script ‘The True Memoirs of an International Assassin,’ which became a Netflix film.

No details on production or release were given.
