Script Sales

September 29th, 2005 | brainjuice

Whenever I want to get really depressed, I go to Done Deal Script and Pitch Sales to find out how other people are getting rich:

Title: Untitled Maddock-Wilson Picture
Log Line: Centers on the Navy Marine Mammal Program and the animals being trained for military rescue operations.
Buyer: Walt Disney Pictures
More: This will be based on two pitches that were merged into “Navy SEALs” in February 2005. Patrick Aiello, Mark Ciardi, Jessie Nelson, Nina Laden and Mayhem Pictures’ Gordon Gray will produce. The film is set to be live action, but could be a CGI animation project.

(Interesting timing.)

Title: Boob Job
Log Line: A guy’s dreams come true when his wife gets a boob job, but his dream doesn’t turn out to be everything he hoped for.

Title: Live 2 Tell
Log Line: A black teen from the projects becomes a drug kingpin and then turns his life around.
Writer: Tupac Shakur

(The FUCK?)

Title: Twist
Log Line: A wimpy computer programmer switches bodies with a studly secret agent. The two become entangled in a complex web of espionage as they fight to survive and bring down their enemies.

Title: Parents on Strike
Log Line: Parents, who are fed up with their children’s behavior, decide to go on strike.

Title: Hall Pass
Log Line: A married couple find themselves going through the motions. The wife gives her husband a “hall pass,” which means permission to engage in extracurriculars. Complications ensue.

(Surely not!)

Title: Dope
Log Line: An undercover DEA agent intent on busting a rural Indiana pot growing ring, jeopardizes her mission by falling in love.
