New Regency has snapped up Aaron Philson Brown’s action spec “Smash” for low six figures.

Barry Josephson (“Enchanted”) is set to produce.

Story centers on a rebellious teen who moves to a suburban Midwest town where the popular crowd lures him into their world of souped-up cars and demolition derbies.

Deal marks the first sale for Brown, who hails from the world of advertising in New York.

Josephson is producing “They Came From Upstairs” for 20th Century Fox and Regency as well as an adaptation of the “Sisters Grimm” series of books at Regency.

Brown is repped by Stephen Crawford at Luber Roklin Entertainment and lawyer Rob Szymanski.
