Default Re: After read request, how long does it take?

People that have optioned or bought scripts from me got back to me with a few days of sending it.

I have had calls anywhere from 1-6 weeks after submitting a requested script. One of my former managers called me 6 weeks after I submitted expressing interest, but then needed to pass the script to others at the firm. I waited another 6 weeks to learn they also liked it, then I waited 5 more weeks before sitting down with them and agreeing to sign.


That may be an outlier, but that's how it played out.

Prior to getting a manager I submitted something to a prodco. Never heard back as it was my first feature and had no expectations on it. This week, one year later, got a call and they want to attach to produce.

I've heard as fast as a couple of days and as long as a month, 3 months, 6 months, and in one case, a little over a year. It's their schedule, not ours.

Thanks everyone for great feedback. It's been 3 weeks and I'm still waiting...I was starting to get depressed, but now have scintilla of hope.
