My forthcoming novel, out in January 2020, is going to her company in the next few weeks via my book-to-film agent. No rucksacks, but the main character is a 40-year-old bestselling writer. Things get very messy.

I even got on the studio lot for Marc Platt Productions and got them to take the screenplay, UNSOLICITED, which was the Legally Blonde producer and they turned me down AFTER reading it. I did not have an agent at the time.

Anyone else?
Yes. IMHO, Reese Witherspoon is all talk. As so many of the female players are who profess to supporting projects "by and for, women."

Just because she/they won't accept submissions from random people they don't know doesn't make her or them 'all talk'. Her company currently has numerous projects in development at various stages, from option to script development to pre-production - and most are written by women.

I hate the flaws of the gatekeeper-dom as well and believe it hinders the discovery of new talent, but someone of her status probably has a crap ton of stuff sent to her all the time from all directions, so it's going to be a tougher nut to crack.

Also, we really don't know if they read fouroneone's logline and had no interest based on the concept itself, but just claimed the "no unsolicited" refusal line. You'd be surprised how often someone breaks their "no unsolicited" rules if they really like an idea.

With that, I won't disagree.
