20th Century Fox TV and Robert Zemeckis’ ImageMovers sells two-time Black Lister, Daniel Kunka’s THE ARK to NBC. It’s a modern retelling of the Noah’s Ark bible story. Per Deadline: “It centers on an engineer who, after the death of his wife, has a vision to construct a ship capable of sustaining life in space. When the build happens to coincide with the coming end of the world, the engineer realizes there may be a larger story at play.” We’ve seen Kunka a lot these last few years on the spec market – “The Battle of New Orleans” (sold to Endurance Media), “Yellowstone Falls” (sold to Covert Media), and “Bermuda Triangle” (sold to Warners).
