2013 Black List is In!

The 2013 Black List dropped a couple of days ago, and Scott Myers helpfully categorized it for our informational digestion. One of the funniest things about the Black List at this point is that many of the films that are "un-produced" are such in name only at this point. However, that doesn't mean they're not great scripts (you'd hope at least some great ones are getting produced, right?). The good news is there are almost twice the number of women writers on the list as last year. The sad news is that means they still only make up about 18% of the writers on the list. I guess we have to take what meager progress we can take. On the funnier end, in a moment of weird Hollywood synchronicity (which seems to happen a lot - Armageddon, Deep Impact anyone?) there are two separate scripts about the making of Jaws and two separate scripts about Mr. Rogers. Weird, right? Head on over to GITS to read more!
