Warner Bros. has signed novelist Suzanne Allain (“Mr. Malcolm’s List”) to a blind-script deal covering two scripts, Variety has learned.
The deal is part of the two-year-old alliance between Warner Bros. and Franklin Leonard’s the Black List, which recommends writers who come from underserved demographics.
Allain’s adapted script for “Mr. Malcolm’s List” is not part of the deal. That romance-comedy centers on two young women who discover the most eligible bachelor’s list of requirements for the “perfect wife,” and try to beat him at his own game.
Allain’s other writing credits include “The Celebrated Pedestrian,” “The Judas Postcard” and “Incognito.” She’s repped by Verve and Benderspink.
