The 2018 Black List Screenplays Unveiled
Franklin Leonard has unveiled the 13th annual Black List, which chronicles the most liked unproduced screenplays in a given calendar year. The list is voted on by over 300 industry executives.
This year’s edition features a myriad of biopics, including scripts about the founders of Snapchat and Drudge Report, in addition to stories about embattled sports reporter A.J. Daulerio, Kobe Bryant, Tiger Woods, astronaut Sally Ride, and Colonel George Custer.
Scripts that have previously been featured on the Black List have won ten of the past twenty-two screenwriting Oscars and four of the past ten Best Picture winners. Recent screenplays include ‘I, Tonya,’ ‘The Post,’ and ‘All the Money In the World.’
