Re: Project Greenlight Season 4

But the fact is that the low cost labor of POC is constantly exploited by the very white, very wealthy 1%. It's a reflection of their privilege and isolation from changing norms. To distort that...

Re: Project Greenlight Season 4

I couldn't help but imagine the poor actor's face when they told him he was out of the film because they didn't want someone black playing the limo driver.

Re: The Thread of Lesser Known Films of Interest

Diabolique (1955)
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0046911/

Not really obscure but I rewatched it the other day and the first three-quarters are an absolute masterclass in increasing mystery and raising...

Re: Project Greenlight Season 4

Agree, she is exactly the type of producer I hate - one that is totally fixated on the bottom line and protecting her reputation with the studio.

She could have very quickly nipped the "film versus...

Re: Martian

Wasn't a fan.

Firstly, too quippy for my taste. Some eye-rollingly, off-brand Sorkin-esque attempts at humour. Donald Glover must have put on at least 50 pounds chewing the scenery.

The film was...

Re: Chamber Drama

Your idea sounds somewhat similar to Festen (1998) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0154420/), a fantastic film and worth watching if you haven't already done so.

Re: Project Greenlight Season 4

I'm surprised that, given he is a producer on the show, Damon left his comments in as they did come across poorly in my opinion.

I think his fundamental point was that the competition did not have a...

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Does anyone know if you get a free evaluation for all script ratings 8 and above (i.e. 8, 9, 10), or just for scoring an 8?

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Hi Franklin,

I'd like to make a (hopefully) simple request: I'd like a function on the site where you can keep your script page private while hosting (inaccessible and unsearchable to industry...

Re: What are my options on this option?

I should clarify that these aren't major rewrites, just minor story and character tweaks to suit the age, race, gender, previous work of a particular actor. Probably 10% changes per pass.



Yeah,...

What are my options on this option?

I optioned a contained action-thriller script for a modest sum (and subsequently renewed that option) to a credible production company nearly 18 months ago. During the option period I've completed...

C'mon. Deep down you already know this. Finish the script first.

In other news, the Yelp reviews for border crossing points make for some interesting reading.

Re: Question on the US-Mexican Border

Thanks, guys. This is really good info. I assume some custom checkpoints are not open 24/7 so the time of day might be a factor as well.

I suspect the answer is "no" but is anyone aware of a place along the US-Mexico border where US Citizens wouldn't have their passports checked driving from the United States into Mexico?

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

While you're here, Franklin, what happened with the Warner Bros Blind deal? I thought it was going to be awarded bi-annually but I haven't seen the announcement.

Re: New Black List Thread - Franklin Leonard answers your questions

Regarding the "end-of-year" Black List proper: does anyone know when voting actually occurs? I assume it must begin soon if the list comes out in early December.
