Congratulations to Rockstar Member Mary Goldman who has optioned her short script "Cueball & Ricky" to Kevin Machete. A story about two hit men who run into an unexpected surprise while trying to dispose of a body, production is currently slated for next March.

Well done to Rockstar Member Rick Hansberry who's optioned his short script "10", a story about a man trying to complete his days to-do list against a tight deadline, to Max Giroux. 

Rockstar member Bill Albert recently received a call from a producer regarding his feature script "Welcome to Nowhere" after only recently joining Script Revolution. Following some changes to the script, it is now being presented to various studios as part of a production company's projects pitch. All the best to Bill. Let's hope this script gets picked up and goes into production. Bill talks a little more about his experience and what he's learned in his Script Revolution blog post you can read here.

Congratulations to Rockstar member Lance Wallick who's optioned his feature script "King of the Sea" to Americana Group after it was found on Script Revolution. Based in California with an attitude of "walking to the beat of your own drummer", Lance certainly is a man of many talents and a writer well worth checking out.

Back at November last year, I was delighted to report that Rockstar Member Jeremy Storey's 22 page short script "An Angel Whispers" had been optioned and produced by Benco Productions in North Carolina after it was discovered on Script Revolution. I'm delighted to say that the project is now complete, out of post, and ready to watch. It really is a brilliant film with great writing and remarkable production value. You can watch the video here.

Big congratulations to Rockstar member Shawn Davis who's sold his feature script "Reprisal" to Tyne Productions after it was found on Script Revolution. The movie was filmed in South Africa in early this year and is currently in post-production with a release slated for late 2020.

Ville is back once again with another two Script Revolution success stories. Firstly, his short script "One Violence, Please" was recently filmed in the US and his script "Coma, a Love Story" is now in pre-production in India with the intention to shoot in summer and be acted out in Hindi. While Ville resides in Finland, Script Revolution is helping him share his art worldwide.

Trea Price, a senior at Radford University and head of the Production 1200 Films team, has produced a short based off a script of CJ Walley's called Cottonmouth, a story about student who’s unwittingly gotten into debt with a drug dealer and goes to their friend for help. Trea found the script via Script Revolution. You can watch the completed short here.

Another big congratulations to Rockstar member Steve Cross who has optioned his script "Falling" to a producer located in NYC. The script was found on Script Revolution by a friend of hers who passed it on. This is the second success story for Steve in two months.

Following his script "Daggers" being featured on Shootin' The Shorts, Jason K. Allen has optioned it to iWIL Productions based in Australia. This is their second collaboration after the production company previously found and produced "The Seashell" which was also found on Script Revolution, the trailer for which can be found here.

Rockstar member Leslie Davis has been able to secure an agent based in LA after his script "Serpentine" was featured on Script Revolution. Having found coverage and competition wins got him nowhere over the past decade, Leslie has a powerful message to pass on to all members - "So here's what I've leaned after ten years of screenwriting and two weeks in the Script Revolution community. Write the best story you can write, trust your own judgement, never give up, but, most importantly, upload your screenplay to Script Revolution. As they say, 'it only takes one yes.'"

A big well done to Rockstar member Anthony Cooper who has recently sold his female centric feature script "Birdz of a Feather". Be sure to check out what else Anthony has available in his portfolio on his Script Revolution page and remember hit that follow button. 

Congratulations to long time member and keen Script Revolution advocate Craig Griffiths who has sold his award winning action sci-fi feature script "The Valley" to a UK producer-director who plans to start shooting later this year. With Craig being based in Australia, it's great to see a Script Revolution deal that's connected two filmmakers on either side of the world.

A big well done to Rockstar member J. Phillip Wilkins who has recently seen his script "Tipsy" made by Dollars And Donuts Productions after it was featured on Shootin' The Shorts. You can watch this great little movie here.

It's going to be hard to fit all of Paul Knauer's Script Revolution success stories into one post but here goes. Firstly there are his short scripts "Playing Cars" and "Unreliable Witness" which were picked up last year. Then there's his  6-page action/drama "Sanctuary" which he's recently optioned to Karen Ross of Owl Echo Entertainment and to directed in LA by Garrett Adams. And finaly there's "For Now", my 8-page romantic comedy short, which is now in post after being shot in Dubai by Sikendar Hemani. Huge congratulations to him.

A long time member of the site, Kimberly Britt has sold her short horror-thriller script "Undertakings" to industry stalwart and founder of Heaven's Fire Films Matthew Roe after it was found on Script Revolution. Congratulations to Kimberly and Matthew.

Long time supporter and Rockstar member P.H. Cook has optioned her short thriller script "No Recollection" after it was found on Script Revolution. A huge congrats to her.

Continuing a running start to the new year, Rockstart member and Shootin' The Shorts editor J.E. Clarke has optioned "Fifty Shades of Impact" via Script Revolution, a raunchy ultra-short set during humanty's final moments. Big congrats to her and we look forward to seeing the produced film under it's new title "Rock Your World".

Congratulations to our Rockstar member Steve Cross who has sold his script "Summer's Charms", a low-budget comedy he'd rewritten from an old play of his, to a student who found it on Script Revolution. Well done, Steve,

Shoutout to long-time member Alan C. Baird who has optioned the Hrvatski rights to his three-page script "iSex" to a producer in Zagreb. All non-Croatian-language rights are still available to anyone interested including English.

Big congratulations to Christine Locker & Lee Ann Riddle who have had their short script "6 Equals 9" picked up by Ron Harris of Stargazersfilmco after it was found on Script Revolution. The film should be going into production shortly and the wonderful writing due that is Christine & Lee, who have been long-time supporters of the site, have plenty more scripts available here.

Starting the year strong, Rockstar member and Shootin' The Shorts editor J.E. Clarke has optioned two of her short scripts "Conditioning" and "Zombie Disability" via Script Revolution. As some of you will know, J.E Clarke runs Shootin' The Shorts which has helped countless other writers find a home for their scripts so it's great to see her get her own wins. A huge congratulations to her.

A couple of months ago, I announced that rockstar member Matthew Mosely had optioned his horror feature script "The Caller" to director/producer Samson Alli after it was found via Script Revolution. I'm now delighted to announce that the script has been purchased for a five figure sum. Huge congratulations to Matthew and Samson. We all look forward to seeing how the project develops and supporting it as we can.

After being spotted on Script Revolution and highlighted by Shootin' The Shorts, Rockstar member Jeremy Storey's brilliant short script An Angel Whispers has been produced by Benco Productions in North Carolina. As fate would have it, the chap who directed and produced turned out to be a Brit just like Jeremy! You can find out more about this project at

Continually going from strength to strength, Jason K Allen has optioned yet another short script. This time it's his screenplay "The Seashell" which has been optioned by Melbourne based director Ron Kahlon and his producing partner Kean Szczur. The short comic fable was found via Script Revolution after getting fourteen favourites from readers and plans are to shoot in the next few months.
