I was very impressed with this when I read it, and expected it to be picked up.

Fingers crossed they do it justice. All the best.

That's the real trick, isn't it? I wonder what percentage of options actually ever get funded. Thanks for the congrats everyone! I hope this one goes somewhere.

Upon reading the logline, I was at first, a little unsure. However, after reading the script feel you've done a great job. Dialogue and pacing were great. Story original. Love how you've played with the the innocents of a unicorn and turned it dark. Congratulations on the option and keep us updated.

Thanks Jordon!

As far as Murderhorn's option went, the producer was great to deal with. He wanted to pitch to two specific funding sources and agreed to a 3 month option with no rewrites. When he didn't get the funding he let me out of the option so I could pursue another interested producer.  

This was a big contrast that to my on a different script where I stupidly agreed to a 1.5 year free option, did a bunch of re-writes, then the producer wanted us to do the budget, pitch and find funding,. On top of that he wants a piece of the script if any of his feedback is kept. I know Dustin would have shouted warnings at me, but it was my first option so I was dumb and agreed to anything.

Fingers crossed that Murderhorn goes somewhere now that it's available again.

Best of luck with it.

Lessons learned I guess on the other option - they guy sounds like a crook. We all stub our toes. Not a problem if you keep on walking
