    Not saying that's what happened but with that list of producers it's highly unlikely that the script was a dud.
    But... this happens all the time. All. The. Time. Lots of producers claim lots of territories because that costs them exactly nothing, and then the script doesn't sell.

    What you're suggesting-- that a producer would use discretionary on a script everyone had already passed on-- has a likelihood of ~0%.

    So this is a thread about a script without a deal, posted in the Script Deals forum?

    Hmmm... it seems that this thread is spam for the managertracker website.

    How are we supposed to give our opinion as to why the script has "not been taken off the table" when the "story details are being kept under wraps" and there isn't even a logline?

    Wait, why was it "more or less assured of being picked up"? As near as I can tell, this was a spec by a writer who hasn't done much, with no agent and a lone wolf manager who's not exactly a major player.

    Also: according to your info, this only went out a few weeks ago-- it could still sell, and if it's a cheap horror movie, someone will probably buy it eventually.
