Stay on top of who's writing what: Jason Reitman is attached to adapt The Possibilities (from the author of The Descendants, which was deconstructed by ScripTipps); Akiva Goldsman was tapped to pen the first Divergent sequel, Insurgent; Seth Rogen is adapting a book on the 1990s video game console wars; JK Rowling is making her screenwriting debut; David Goyer is writing the Fantastic Voyage remake for James Cameron; and more!
Flip through the pages of SLUGline to read about intellectual property lawsuits surrounding Elizabeth Banks' Walk of Shame, Clint Eastwood's Trouble with the Curve, the hit horror franchise The Conjuring, Sylvester Stallone's The Expendables franchise, and Quentin Tarantino's famously leaked The Hateful Eight screenplay.
You'll also find fascinating interviews with top screenwriters (including a rare conversation with Risky Business writer/director Paul Brickman and advice from a recent Nicholl Fellowship winner) and new showrunners (FX's Fargo, MTV's Awkward), along with coverage of the recent awards season and WGA contract negotiations.
Plus, in addition to articles on the craft of screenwriting, SLUGline features analytical articles exploring trends in romantic comedy, female protagonists, shared universe superhero movies, politics in comic book movies, monster movie metaphors, coming of age stories, and the "hyperlink" screenplay.
Once again, SLUGline is completely free and compiled for screenwriters exclusively by the creators of ScripTipps. Check it out today.
