We are looking for completed feature-length family-audience, action/adventure scripts. The script should contain some humor. In other words, scripts in the vein of “Goonies,” “Spy Kids,” and “Big Fat Liar.” This should have elements that adults can enjoy, but it should still appeal to younger audiences as demonstrated in the above titles. The script should have the potential to turn into a TV series.
Budget will not exceed $15 million. Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.
We are looking for completed, feature-length, fairy tale scripts that have a twist and appeal to today’s audience with a modern sensibility (big sets and action). However, it should be set in an accurate past time period; NO present-day setting adaptations. Examples of the type of script we are looking for would be "Snow White and The Huntsman," "Mirror, Mirror" and "Red Riding Hood," where the story’s premise and characters stays true to the fairy tale but adds a twist (e.g. werewolves) and involves action elements to appeal to a wider audience.
Budget is high from $35 million and up. Both WGA and Non-WGA writers may submit.
So close, but no cigar, as they say. Breaks my heart.
Please note, we are not looking for romcom, teen, fantasy, detective, cop, murder, historical, western, horror (vampire or zombie et al), movie/music industry, animals, mob, disease of the week, old people, body switch, XMAS, or reality-based scripts.
We are looking for completed feature-length, edgy drama scripts, i.e. material in the vein of "Winter's Bone," "Tyrannosaur," "Shame," "We Need to Talk About Kevin," "Half Nelson," or "Hard Candy."
I've never seen any of those, but some who have read 'Thistles' have compared it to both 'Shame' and 'Half Nelson'. I wonder if that's a sign.
Sorry if I'm asking a stupid question, Pia, but I heard you have to pay $50 to be able to submit to a lead or something of the like. Does entering that code you suggested bypass that? If you're too busy to answer, I can figure it out on the site tomorrow.
Looks like I have even more homework than I thought over the Holiday Week. :-)
And thanks for taking the time to post all these for us, Pia. You don't know how much it's appreciated. (And probably how much it excites people to get to work.)
