  7. That Ghost Protocol trailer is A.MAZE.ING...

    1. Hasmap


      Agreed. Looks awesome. But does anyone know if Ving Rhames is in the film? Yahoo says he is, but Imdb seems to think otherwise.



  8. I love this script competition! You guys/gals should enter if you have a great script. Cool prizes. Last year's winner met w/ Shane Black and got repped. http://www.justeffing.com/2011-screenwriting-competition/

    1. chris.kartje


      Thanks for the info!

  9. Anybody else here entering the Disney/ABC Fellowship? Game changer this year with 2 letters of recommendation required huh?

    1. TheTypeBMBA


      It is a bit intimidating perhaps, but "entertainment industry professionals" casts a fairly wide net.

    2. typistolero


      Just make sure to practice your diversity.

  10. Is it me or is there a ton of Iraqi War and Personal Story content getting sold?

  11. RIP Stephen Spielberg. SO SAD

    1. boynotorious

  12. Shout out to nathanrrr for kickin it with all the pilot uploads over this past year... wow.. THANKS

    1. admin


      We're in the process of adding back years for people, so they can see what's been selling over the past few buying seasons in TV.


    2. nathanrrr


      No problem, I am just the relayer of the information. Going to upload last season this weekend, then the year prior in the next two weeks.

  13. Just wanted to post this cool contest. Last year's winner got $, repped and had lunch w/ Shane Black. Here's the link: http://www.justeffing.com/2011-screenwriting-competition/ -- and shit this year they are giving away a Tattoo from Kat Von D too if you want it! Crazy!

      I'm not disagreeing with you on that point because if nothing is happening in the first 15 pages then you need work on your story and structure but people should that they'll focus on the first 15 before entering and paying hefty sum for 15 pages.

    3. mikeyP_73


      Oh I know and I hear you. What I like about that contest is that they are up front about how they judge. I know someone who judges for Austin and they are encouraged to read up to page 20 or 30. So, yes writers should focus on the whole script - because if contest judges/ readers gets past the first 15 and keep going then it better be great all the way up to page 120 right? Last years winner also won Blue Cat. Same script different title I think. Anywhoo. Yep focus on writing a kick ass scr...

    4. Nic.Lishko


      Definitely will. I mean, my hook is obvious from page 1, it just takes 17 more pages to get into :D.

  14. If I see a screenplay with another GD title that has "Douchebag" in it I am going to scream... Maybe I should write a script called DOUCHEBAG - 3D - IN SPACE

      Dr. Douchebag or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb

    3. boynotorious


      Bad Christian Douchebags. I wonder if that would piss the PTC off as well?

  15. If you are having problems with dialogue today just use this link and you can steal some golden Sheen quotes..http://www.livethesheendream.com

    1. benskelly2


      My absolute favorite that no one else has singled out is "I'm tired of pretending I'm not special". I love it.

  16. love the Red Band trailer for "Take me home tonight" ... I hope it's good... I think we all need a good 80's like movie these days to make us laugh till it hurts

    1. tbblue


      Saw a screening of it a while back, really loved it. There's some great scenes in there (Demetri Martin kills!) and it doesn't exaggerate the 80s, which I liked a whole lot. Made it feel more real that way. Also, the soundtrack kicks so much ass!

    2. treyselman


      "Demetri Martin kills!" i had no idea he was in there. ha. takin' it to 11.

    3. boynotorious


      I agree with Blue. I caught a screening of this years back. Or so it seems. The movie was a blast. This might be the first time in history that you should really ignore the long delay.

  17. Holy Shit - EXIT STRATEGY was Alias meets 24 on crack - so fucking good... I highly recommend

    1. LeftyJones


      I agree - great pilot. Curious how they'll maintain that level cost-wise week to week. Only downer for me was that exact plot was done on Covert Affairs last season, which is candy glass by comparison.

    2. Nic.Lishko


      You had me at 24. If it's in the Exchange, I'll totally read it.

    3. LeadSolo


      well, it's not. hint. hint.

  18. Shout out to nathanrrr for all the Pilot Scripts! Thanks! Whoot Whoot!

    1. nathanrrr


      No problem! Its not all me, a lot of members are going anonymous.

    2. admin


      Ditto! on the thanks! Of all the boards I'm on, this has the best grid, and pot of them all. Many thanks!

  19. Why wasn't there more animated features up for best animated picture? Only 3? I know TS3 will probably walk away with Best Animated Picture but Tangled should have been nominated too... and also Tron since most of that movie was CGI animated (ha! I kid) - But, I don't think it's fair that a picture gets nominated in two categories and one one category only has 3 other pics in it - am I crazy here?

  20. All Ron Moore had to do is say "Supernatural CSI" and bam his TV show got picked up to Pilot.... Reading it now. It's okay... nothing earth shattering yet just straightforward Cop procedural

  21. Enjoyed Harry's Law last night on NBC - they actually pulled off a smart, funny action packed show like their sister network USA.... I'll give it another go next week. Anybody else see it?

    1. nathanrrr


      I have seen the first two episodes, it is witty and smart but might not be my cup of tea.

  22. Um... wow ... nice get on BSG Blood and Chrome!

    1. DarkDestroyer


      I second this...thanks very much. Been eager to read this!

    2. Allen


      Many thanks. The beginning sort of comes off like BSG: Starship Troopers.

    3. nathanrrr


      No problem, friend was eager to send it. I read it tonight as well. Keeping up on pilot scripts in advance of the rush.

  23. Natalie Portman, Pregnant and engaged... sorry boys ...

    1. boynotorious


      Sob. Sob. Whatever.

    2. Nic.Lishko


      I quote the most recent Robot Chicken:

      Are you an Angel?

      No I'm not an angel...

      Are you a fairy?

      Fairies aren't real.

      ...Are you an elephant?

      I can't believe she cheated on me.

  24. By the way.. this is the best tracking board online for all things H-wood period!

  25. I can't believe how big the Black List gets every year... I think they should divide it into categories (Comedy Drama Adaption Graphic Novel etc etc. So, I have 2 beefs: 1) I don't think writers who adapt a best selling book should be on there unless they actually wrote the book... 2) In one of the categories there should be specs (writers that are new) vs. established writers ... Don't know if that all makes sense

    1. mikeyP_73


      Ha ha... Yes. I was going to add that's why I loved the Hit List over the Black List ...

    2. sbbn


      I don't have issue with either of the beefs you mention: if the black list is about essentially most popular writing, why does it matter if it is from source material (which still takes an skill to adapt) or established writers. It isn't a list to promote new writers or to promote unadapted works.


      That being said - I'm very glad there is the HIT LIST and it's fun to compare how things shake out between the two.

    3. mikeyP_73


      True true. And I just watched Franklin Leonard's speech. He does say that his intent was to find new voices and / or new scripts that people love. So, the Black List are the most "loved" scripts in Tinsel Town no matter the genre or subject matter... All I have to say is ... I wish I had time to read them all =)
