2010 Black List - posted by Don

The 2010 Black List (pdf format) is out.

Some previous Black List scripts included Juno, The Social Network, 500 Days of Summer and Lars And The Real Girl.

This year, with 49 votes leading the pack is College Republicans by by Wes Jones

Based on true events. Aspiring politician Karl Rove runs a dirty campaign for national College Republican Chairman under the guidance of Lee Atwater, his campaign manager.

A few other notable (well, at least to me) nods are:

Hunger Games by Billy Ray. Based on the novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins.

I’m heartened to see this make The Black List. My boys and I have read the series and I hope that the scripts appearance on The Black List means that they’ll be able to pull off which appears to me to be a very difficult book to film.

Also appearing is Chris Sparling’s ATM. Chris wrote Buried which came out last year.

Three co-workers end up in a desperate fight for survival when they stop to use an ATM.

Another script that caught my eye was Boy Scouts Vs. Zombies by Carrie Evans & Emi Mochizuko.

A troop of Boy Scouts on their weekend camping trip must protect an island town from a zombie outbreak and save the local girl scout troop.

Check out Nikki Finke’s Deadline Hollywood which has an excellent writeup and analysis of The Black List.

*For those of you who don’t know, The Black List is an annual list of Hollywood’s most liked unproduced screenplays. It started in 2004 when Franklin Leonard, a development executive for Appian Way, asked folks in the business to send in their list of top 10 unproduced screenplays. Those lists were complied into The Black List (which now as a site entirely devoted to The Black List).

[…] I’m enthralled by popcorn (with nacho cheese) and the big screen. I read scripts off the “Black List” and stalk them during production until it finally hits the screen years later, if at […]
