Well done to Rachel Brewer for her first ever script option thanks to her short "Lily's New Friend" being spotted by producer/director Tyna Ezenma on Script Revolution. Rachel is a first class example of a screenwriter using the features Script Revolution offers to best present herself and her work.

Huge congratulations to Matthew Mosely for optioning his horror feature script "The Caller" to director/producer Samson Alli, an industry member who's been worked with Script Revolution members before.

A man of many Script Revolution success stories, Jason K Allen has optioned another short script. This time it's his screenplay "Wood" which has been optioned by Australia-based filmmaker, Matthew Lumbers

Not one but two success stories for Ville as his recently acquired short script "Spin The Bottle" has now been filmed and available on YouTube while another one of this short scripts "Alter" has been picked up by a filmmaker with the intent to use it as part of an anthology horror movie. Well done!

Rockstar Member Jerry Robbins has sold his horror feature screenplay to Penumbra Entertainment after it was found via Script Revolution. Jerry's been maximizing all the features available to him to make sure his script listings do his writing justice and it's clearly paid off. A huge congratulations to him.

Big congratulations to Richard Buzzell who has sold his feature script "Robot Love", a story about a man who becomes emotionally involved with an artificially intelligent companion, to Los Angeles based producer Jeff Hertzberg.

Scott Nelson's short script was found on Script Revolution and shot in Camden over two days recently with a cast of crew of 34 at one point during the shoot. The film is currently in editing and set for release sometime in July.

Long time member and Rockstar Patreon Supporter, John recently saw his short script produced in the UK. It looks fabulous and should be out of post-production in July.

Yes, it's that cheeky face again. James Baron continues to kill it having optioned another short via Script Revolution, this time to Daniel Domaschenz after "Gramma Nazi Killer" was featured on Shootin' the Shorts.

After being motivated to continue thanks to Script Revolution, Tina has recently signed deals with production company 2HOTFILMS for both one of her short scripts and a TV Series trailer she adapted from one of her novels.

Elizabeth is one of Script Revolution's earliest members so it's wonderful to see her script make it to the screen. Watch the trailer here. She's also recently been contacted recently about making one of her short scripts.

After reporting a lot of interest on this script via Script Revolution, Craig has signed a deal with a production company based in New York. This was the second deal Craig was offered on this script after being discovered via the site.

Huge congratulations to Anthony Cawood,  Chris Courtney Martin, and Jerry Robbins for optioning scripts that were found on Script Revolution and shoutout to Meg Turner who's portfolio impressed a producer so much they've now been hired (for the first time ever) to write a new feature script.

After reaching the top of the Most Loved Scripts listing on Script Revolution with a massive 37 fans having favourited it and having been featured in the Shootin' The Shorts section of the site, I'm delighted to announce that The Narrator by James Barron has been picked up and produced by Julia Trofimova - CJ

Big congratulations to Wal Freeman for attracting the attention of an actor via Script Revolution and who's now writing them a contained horror short.

Well done to Chris Keaton who recently optioned his short script A Boy's Fear to up-and-coming LA based director Samson Ali.

Big congratulations to Jason for optioning his feature script Welcome to Munson Ridge to London based director/producer and Hollywood Black Film Festival winner Dean Charles after it was discovered on Script Revolution.

I mentioned at the end of September that Steve Miles had optioned his script Forever Red via Script Revolution and the filmmakers were crowdfunding some of the budget. I'm pleased to say they've since reached their 80% goal and, while they still need that last 20%, will be able to shoot on 16mm film rather than digital.

It seems success stories are coming in pairs for members as Chris Hicks has optioned his shorts The Meltdown and The Chosen One to Charlie Mason.

Jason K Allen’s short A Most Unfortunate Face has been optioned UK-based director Dean Charles. Plus, his short comedy I Swear Inc. has been picked up by Mockingbird Studio.

Major congrats to Script Revolution member Pete Barry who's currently penning the new Robin Hood Stand-Alone Drama "Marian" for Sony, a project which has now attached Margot Robbie to star. More details can be found in The Hollywood Reporter article here. But, before that, we highly recommend any aspiring filmmakers check out our Shootin' The Shorts feature for his short script "Jam". Well done Pete, you're a shining example of the kind of talent that can be found here.

Shoutout to Chris Keaton, a man with a whole load of short scripts on offer, who's optioned his script A Child Outside. Chris is an Air Force veteran based in Arizona and has recently started expanding his screenwriting into novel writing aswell. Well done, Chris.

Wow – when a great script meets a terrific Director…  sparks and magic simply fly!

Please join Script Revolution in congratulating the heck out of James Barron for his option of Disposal Problems to Director Paul Thompson.  Here’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to Paul…

Since 2004, Paul has directed several short films, including Where the Wild Things GoDoe and Quarantine, and music videos for Canadian artists including “Charge!!” for Charge of the Light Brigade, and “Let’s be Friends” for hip-hop artist Infinite. Commercials he’s produced have aired nationally. In addition to...

Shoutout to the amazing Pia Cook who has optioned her script Coulrophobia via Script Revolution. Pia is one of the most supportive, talented, and generally awesome screenwriters I know, who is one of the few out there selling her feature scripts worldwide - just check out her IMDB credits via the link on her profile. I strongly suggest filmmakers hit that follow button to stay updated with her latest work. Pia has given a filmmaking student a non-exclusive option of her script this time round and thus Coulrophobia is still technically on the market for anybody who wants to take it to the next...

A big shoutout to Elizabeth H. Vu who has optioned her script A Call in the Night to Raheel Sharma of Prolive Productions. Raheel contacted Elizabeth via Script Revolution and, after purchasing the rights to her script, plans to start shooting in December. This is wonderful news since Elizabeth was a very early adopter of Script Revolution and has worked hard to get her scripts out there in the public eye.
