Just in Time (was Cupidity) filmed - post author Don

Congratulation to the *new* Mike Shelton (Now with Beard!). His short work Cupidity (6 pages, PDF format) has been filmed as Just in Time. The Cupidity script is available here, and serves as a pretty good example of how a film can go through changes via development and collaboration with a director.

Barry’s got a plan and a line, but is that enough to get him a date?

Board members can hop over here and let Mike know what you think. – Don

33 Unproduced Scripts up - post author Don

Over on the Unproduced Scripts page we have Murray’s The Borderline about a retired gunfighter turned to ranching only to have his family brutally murdered. Rancher (now gunfighter, again) teams up with Marshall. One wants justice, one wants revenge. Throw in a white horse and you have an epic western.

And there is Eddie’s Creatures from Hell where two friends on a road trip encounter something. I’m not going to give it away.

Not doing it for you? There are thirty more scripts for your perusal on the Unproduced Scripts page. – Don
