The Black List is where moviemakers find great scripts to make and scripts find moviemakers to make them.
Over 200 Black List screenplays have been made as feature films. Those films have earned over $16BN in worldwide box office, have been nominated for 148 Academy Awards, and have won 25, including Best Pictures SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE and THE KING’S SPEECH and five of the last ten screenwriting Oscars.
The 2012 Black List was just unveiled on Monday morning via the group’s Twitter account. It was compiled from the suggestions over 290 film executives, each of whom contributed the names of up to ten of their favourite scripts that were written in, or are uniquely associated with, 2012 and will not have completed principal photography during this calendar year. It means it’s the list of the hottest unproduced screenplays of the year. Taika’s script got 12 votes and made the list!
