As happens every December since 2005, producer Franklin Leonard and his team have gathered on a list of proposals from 300 filmmakers of the at least seven mentions to join this list of projects that, despite having a good script, they have not achieved production.
The project that has received the most votes has been Frat Boy Genius, script written by Elissa Karasik where a former employee of Snapchat tells the meteoric rise of Evan Spiegel, founder of the mobile messaging program. Of course, the focus of the script will show a little smug face to Spiegel.
Another of the non-produced scripts is King Richard, written by Zach Baylin and telling the life of Richard Williams, father of tennis players Venus and Serena Williams.
It's also the excitement Get home safe, by Christy Hall, about a young woman who has to come home alone on Halloween night with the cell phone without battery.
Also listed in the list mamba, scripts written by Mike Schneider, and it would treat a chronicle of the Kobe Bryant scandal when the basketball player was accused of a crime of sexual aggression in 2003.
Another project is drudge, written by Cody Brotter, on how the controversial reporter Matt Drudge released the Monica Lewinsky scandal and caused former Democratic President Bill Clinton to meet one impeachment.
"Spotlight" and "Pentagon files" were on the list
It should be noted that one third of the Black List 2018 scripts are written by women. Added to this is that 40% of the projects would have been also controlled by filmmakers, as shown in a comparative magazine Variety.
Contrary to what the name suggests, the black list of Hollywood appears to be a springboard for many projects that would otherwise not have been funded. Several Oscar-winning films have appeared on this list as I'd like to be a millionaire, The social network or Spolights.
Among the latest products have been on the blacklist movies like Femkantfilene from Spielberg or other bands like Yo, Tonya, drifting or Roman J. Israel, Esq.
