Universal buys million-dollar ‘Mena’ for Ron Howard

Ron Howard

Universal Pictures has just paid $1 million for a spec script titled Mena, which Ron Howard is attached to direct.

Gary Spinelli has penned the spec, and concerns real-life pilot Barry Seal who, in the 1980s, worked as a gun runner and drug trafficker for both the CIA and the Medellin cartel.

In Deadline‘s report, they mention Seal’s hefty weight, so maybe that’ll be important to the plot too.

Brian Grazer is, obviously, producing for Howard.

Consider this a 2015 Oscar contender.
