Black List 2018 Includes Scripts About Snapchat Founder, Matt Drudge and Williams Sisters’ Dad

Black List 2018 Includes Scripts About Snapchat Founder, Matt Drudge and Williams Sisters’ Dad
Snapchat drama “Frat Boy Genius” leads the 2018 version of the Black List — an annual ranking of the best unproduced screenplays in Hollywood.

“Frat Boy Genius” centers on a disgruntled employee of Snapchat, who chronicles the rise of her former Stanford classmate — and “preeminent douchebag” and current boss Evan Spiegel.

The list, unveiled on Monday, was compiled by Franklin Leonard’s Black List organization from the suggestions of over 300 film executives, each of whom contributed the names of up to 10 favorite scripts that were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, 2018 and will not have begun principal photography during this calendar year. Scripts had to receive at least seven mentions to be included on the Black List.

Writer Elissa Karasik is a Mexican-Jewish writer and native Angeleno with a BA in English from Stanford University. At Stanford, she was head writer of the school’s annual musical comedy, “Gaieties.” She

James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Script Is Making People Who Have Read it Cry

James Gunn's Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 Script Is Making People Who Have Read it Cry
Turns out that there are a few lucky people in Hollywood who have read the script that James Gunn wrote for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. Apparently the story is so good and so emotional that it is making people cry. This information comes from Peter Sciretta of /Film:

If I had somehow talked to two separate people, who somehow read James Gunn’s Guardians 3 script, and both told me that it made them cry, I probably wouldn’t be able to say any more.

— Peter Sciretta (@slashfilm) December 17, 2018

We’ve heard from a couple of sources that Disney and Marvel plan on using this script that Gunn wrote, even though he is no longer going to direct the film. Marvel has yet to find a director to replace Gunn, but whoever they do hire, I hope that they stick with the script and vision that Gunn had for the movie.

Director Francis Lee’s gay drama love story “God’s Own Country” was easily one of the Best Films of 2017 You Didn’t See and so damn good it also made our list proper Best Films Of 2017 list. Lee’s incredible film, intimate, sparse and unsentimental, created a terrific, unvarnished look at masculine love, something of a nice anecdote to the won’t-show-dongs conservative take of “Call Me By Your Name,” released in the same year.

Netflix Isn’t Killing Movie Theaters, Study Shows

Netflix Isn’t Killing Movie Theaters, Study Shows
Netflix isn’t killing movie theaters. At least, that’s the take-away from a new study conducted by EY’s Quantitative Economics and Statistics group, which finds that people who go to movies in theaters more frequently also consume more streaming content. That flies in the face of the “conventional wisdom” of box office sages, who grimly ascribe flatlining theatrical attendance to the growing popularity of digital entertainment companies.

If the study’s findings are accurate, it would appear that the two forms of entertainment consumption are more complementary than cannibalistic. The study found, for instance, that respondents who visited a movie theater nine times or more in the last 12 months consumed more streaming content than consumers who visited a movie theater only once or twice over the past year. Those who saw nine or more movies at the cinema averaged 11 hours of weekly streaming compared to the seven hours

Terry Gilliam’s Long-Delayed ‘The Man Who Killed Don Quixote’ Acquired by Screen Media
U.S. audiences will finally get the chance to see Terry Gilliam’s long-delayed film “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote,” a passion project that has taken the director nearly two decades to get to the screen.

Screen Media acquired the North American rights to “The Man Who Killed Don Quixote” and, barring yet another unforeseen mishap, it is planning a March 2019 theatrical release in partnership with Fathom Events, the company announced Monday.

The film stars Jonathan Pryce as the title character alongside Adam Driver, Stellan Skarsgård, Olga Kurylenko and Jordi Mollà. Driver plays a frustrated filmmaker and disillusioned advertising executive who becomes pulled into a world of time-jumping fantasy when a Spanish cobbler (Pryce) who believes he is Don Quixote mistakes Toby for his trusted squire Sancho Panza. Pulled further into the cobbler’s world, Toby gradually becomes unable to tell his dreams from reality.

How The Rolling Stones’ ‘She’s a Rainbow’ Got a Seven-Figure Synch Renaissance

As far as Rolling Stones chart hits go, “She’s A Rainbow” is more of a cult favorite in the band’s canon, just missing the Top 40 of Mick Jagger’s biggest Billboard Hot 100 hits of all time. But by 2018 standards, it’s suddenly become a smash — based on how many high-profile sync placements the song has received in the fourth quarter alone.

In June, Acura debuted a new TV campaign for its 2019 Rdx featuring an immersive score (and in-car chyron) from the 1967 single, one of two simultaneous campaigns featuring a Stones classic (although Motorhead handles duties for the other spot.

MSNBC Chris Matthews’ Suggests Trump May Resign in Deal to Spare His Children Prison

MSNBC Chris Matthews’ Suggests Trump May Resign in Deal to Spare His Children Prison
Chris Matthews floated a novel legal theory on his MSNBC show “Hardball” Monday evening suggesting President Trump could resign as part of a deal with prosecutors to spare his children the possibility of being indicted and sent to prison.

“The president’s children stand right in the line of Mueller’s investigative progress — they stand as the next dominos to fall. But therein lies the problem, where earlier Mueller subjects have given Trump up, these two lack the option to do that,” Matthews said. “They can hardly testify against their father, which brings the country to the reckoning. If the prosecutor will not be stopped and the kids will not fall to him, we see the president’s adult children heading to prison.”
