    Golden. From the titles alone on some of these I want to fork over ten bucks to see them.

    Now that Payne/McKay have been signed to script the new Star Trek film, I wonder how long it will take studios to scramble to produce their other optioned screenplays, or pick up their unsold stack? Our Man Lilburne could be made for a song, and The Legend of King Midas is an epic masterpiece.

    I’m always scratching my head over why obvious duds are dragged unto the screen, while some of the best are left to turn to dust. When I sit on set and hear actors complain about lines, and nearly cry knowing the thing will be a flop, and probably ruin their career, I wonder which delusional exec signed for it, and why? Are there tax incentives to produce terrible films?

    Note to studios: If a screenplay is good, make the film. If it sucks, don’t waste another minute on it.

    A long Black List but where are the women? Such a small representation. Are females not writing or just not being accepted?

  3. Oh my gosh! All that talent and nowhere to go?
