    The Black List 2012: Screenplay Roster

    By NIKKI FINKE, Editor in Chief |

    Monday December 17, 2012 @ 9:49am PSTTags: The Black List
    Once again, Deadline Hollywood will be the first to post in its entirety The Black List, which for the uninitiated is film executive Franklin Leonard’s hot unproduced screenplay pecking order which he began in 2004. (For now, here are the scripts in no particular order as they are announced on Twitter. Compiled every year from the suggestions of hundreds of film executives, each contributes the names of up to 10 of their favorite scripts that were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, the current year and will not be released in theaters during this calendar year. (This year, Leonard said more than 290 film executives voted). The Black List does catapult dozens of scripts into production and screenwriters out of oblivion. Diablo Cody’s Juno, Nancy Oliver’s Lars And The Real Girl and Scott Neustader’s and Michael Weber’s 500 Days Of Summer are just some of the screenplays which appeared on The Black List and then were made. I’ve noticed that it’s also a “big dick” measuring contest for the Hollywood agencies and their motion picture lit departments. Problem is, some screenwriters think this list isn’t on the up-and-up and accuse junior studio execs and assistants along with self-interested agents and managers of getting together to push their own clients on projects even if already abandoned. Also, if you spot inaccuracies, take it up with Leonard: I do not alter his list. Anyway, climb off the ledge if you’re not on The Black List. And, if you did make the cut, then congratulations:

    There's a lot of revenge thrillers there. McCarthy sounds awesome and totally the type of spec that Leonardo Di Caprio would buy. Rodham would be a great Oscar platform for a female actress. Clive sounds like the male version of Rust & Bone.
