Thunder Road Boards ‘Enigma’ Female Spy Pic Written By Kat Wood – Deadline


EXCLUSIVE: Basil Iwanyk’s Thunder Road Pictures opted for the original contemporary supernatural spy thriller, Enigma, by scribe Kat Wood.

A cross between Bond and grave robber, Enigma follows Emma Taylor, a British spy, who is suddenly tasked with hiding a mysterious and dangerous artifact that falls into her hands so that the world will never find it again. This is a spy photo where nuclear codes are not in play. Unlike other adventure photos, Enigma tells the unique story of the person whose job it is to hide precious artifacts and set traps, diversions, red herrings so that they are never found again.

Wood was named one of International Screen’s “British stars of tomorrow”. She recently sold her original location Fuel at Amazon with Misha Green and Jurnee Smollett producing, and the latter attached to star. Previously, Wood wrote Ruby, an original screenplay that was blacklisted 2020 and sold as a spec, again to Amazon with David Leitch producing 87North. Wood also sold a number of original scripts and pitches, including Sent and Gender to Pascal Pictures/Sony, and Diplomatic courier at Skydance. Wood, also a director, is currently working on her first feature; his first short film, Housestars Maggie Gyllenhaal and was produced by Oscar-nominated producer Dana Brunetti. Wood is replaced by Verve and attorney Mitch Smelkinson.
