Congratulations to Marnie Mitchell-Lister – Getting to Know You Optioned! - post author wonkavite

You know, like loving parents… we at STS love all our babies (read “scripts we review”) equally.

But when one particular script stands out – and gets grabbed by a lucky director that’s sure to do it justice…  Well, don’t be surprised when we jump up in the stands and cheer.  And – we’ll probably even treat that script to ice-cream cake later. That is, when all is said and done.

So please join us in congratulating Marnie Mitchell Lister on the recent optioning of “Getting to Know You”from Day One, it’s been a witty, sharp script with an evil twist.  We’ll be thrilled to see this one on screen!

In the meantime, we very much recommend you check out Marnie’s other work, all of which is available at her website Brain here!

And here are a few reviews of her work to check out as well:

Honey Do (Short) – A woman confronts her lazy husband with a long list of things he’s promised to do around the house. When he doesn’t budge, she decides to do them herself.

The Creation of Oz (Short)- Sometimes, the most beautiful dreams emerge from the most modest beginnings…

Letting Go – (Short)  After a horrible accident, a young girl’s mother has a very hard time letting go.

Memories – (Feature) – A control freak struggling with her recent divorce attempts to recreate a family road trip with her bitter ex-husband to help their amnesiac daughter regain her memory. A wonderful dramedy that made the top 15% at Nicholl!

But make SURE you check out her website.  Because Marnie’s got much more!

And KP…a director is peddling “Memories” around Hollywood right now. Gave him a 1 year option on it. We’ll see what happens!! xx
