For up-and-coming screenwriter Aaron Berg his first screenplay sale couldn't have gone any better. His script, titled "Section 6," sparked a bidding war, with Universal nabbing the rights and paying a cool $1.2 million for his thriller that "follows the World War I-era formation of British intelligence agency MI6 and its first director, Sir George Mansfield Cummings, who served as the inspiration for M in the 'James Bond' series." With a logline like that, it's no wonder that Hugh Jackman has taken a look at the material, while Justin Lin and Brett Ratner have also shown an interest as directors. No one is formally attached yet, but it's safe to say this one is going to get some major talent.
