Chris McCoy sold his second project this month to DreamWorks: Good Looking, an original romantic-comedy script with a sci-fi twist, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

In a funky tweak on Minority Report, McCoy's newest project posits a future dating service that matches soulmates around the world without fail. The storyline follows a guy who has the audacity to reject the person chosen for him.

McCoy developed the idea last year while on a working vacation in London, where he noticed the city's near-universal coverage by surveillance camera to deter crime. He started musing on alternative uses for that collected personal information.

Double Feature Films' Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher are producing Good Looking.
