Congratulations to Pia Cook – Initiation Optioned! - posted by wonkavite

Please join us in a hearty cheer to writer Pia Cook.  Her short script Initiation has been optioned (and in fact, is now in post)!

Not that this is any surprise: Born and raised in Sweden, Pia Cook has SEVERAL produced features and shorts to her name – full IMDB credits here. She started writing screenplays in 2006 and has written over seventy short screenplays and ten features. (Yeah… that’s not a typo. Seven ZERO.)

And – knowing Pia – there’s plenty more where that came from.

Directors seeking their next project are urged to contact Pia at  Gatortales “AT” gmail, and check out another of her reviewed shorts here:

Fit (Comedy): A “Biggest Loser” contest turns into a case of one-upmanship that gets wildly out of hand.

Truth or Dare (Horror): We all have our secrets….

Hero’s Gift (Drama): A young boy learns that not all presents come in a box with a fancy wrapper. Some of the best presents are not even wrapped at all.

The Riding Hood’s Creed (Horror): Lonnie was supposed to just take her back to Grandma’s house. But something overcame him along the way.

Heart of Coal (Horror): A renowned female psychologist ruminates over serial killer personalities – and the horror they’ve wreaked on her life…

Old Wounds (Drama): A down and out loser gets an unexpected letter in the mail.

Thanks guys! Janet didn’t tell me about this, so thank you Shawn D for pointing it out to me. 🙂

This one had quite a bit of interest in it. It finally went to a director/producer named Alan Walsh. I can’t wait to see it. For any writer curious about what drew people to this script, I was told it was the great tension, especially in the car. I also used the antagonist, Amara in a contained thriller that Brett spun into great feature if anyone is interested.

Cheers! 🙂
