The 2012 Black List

The 2012 Black List is out, and Scott Myers has kindly posted the full list along with links to stories about scripts that sold during the previous year. Franklin Leonard of the Black List commented:

This year’s list is a wide range of writing from several dozen writers who exciting up and comers. There are some riveting biopics, hilarious romantic comedies, and flat out novel scripts on this year’s list. I, for one, am looking forward to reading many of them, and I don’t think I’m alone in that.

Scott Myers added:

Here are some stats about this year’s list:

5 writers (or teams) on the #BlackList2012 do not have an agent. 10 do not have a manager.

37.1% of the scripts on this year’s list do not yet have a producer attached.

69.2% of the scripts on this year’s list do not yet have financing in place.

9 writers on the #BlackList2012 have been on the Black List before.
