Tze Chun and Jon M. Chu team up for 'Escape'

Paramount Pictures picks up action/adventure project from 'Once Upon a Time' writer.

Some cool movie news from our filmmaker friends... Paramount Pictures has picked up Escape, an action/adventure project written by Tze Chun and to be produced by Jon M. Chu and Hieu Ho.

Jon M. Chu, 'Once Upon a Time' Writer Planning 'Escape' for Paramount (Exclusive)

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Escape is about a group of tech-savvy criminals who are recruited for a mission. Say no more. I am a fan of movies about specialists recruited for a mission. Partner up with a cool producer like Jon M. Chu, and this has the makings of a fun movie.

Tze has written episodes of ABC's fairy tale drama series Once Upon a Time. His previous film credits include co-writing and directing the crime thriller Cold Comes the Night, starring Bryan Cranston and Alice Eve, and the Sundance indie family drama Children of Invention.

I'm a huge fan of Tze's work, and I'm looking forward to seeing his work on a big studio scale.
