Screenwriter and director Stephen Sommers lists Malibu estate at $13.5 million

Screenwriter and director Stephen Sommers and his wife, Jana, have listed their estate in Malibu for sale at $13.5 million.

Set in the gated community of Serra Retreat at the end of a cul-de-sac, the rebuilt and remodeled main house and detached guesthouse sit on 1.5 acres with a sports court, outdoor fireplace, a barbecue center and expansive lawns. The free-form swimming pool features waterfalls and a slide.

Interior amenities include a home theater, double-island kitchen, two family rooms, six bedrooms and nine bathrooms in 9,130 square feet of living space. There are fireplaces in the main house and the guesthouse.

Sommers’ writing and directing credits include “G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra” (2009), “Van Helsing” (2004) and “The Mummy” (1999). The 49-year-old is working on the upcoming films “When Worlds Collide” and “Odd Thomas.”


Public records show the couple bought the house in 2007 from Britney Spears for $10 million.

Jordan Cohen of Re/Max Olson & Associates is the listing agent.
