Congratulations to Rockstar Member Désirée Nordlund who's sold the rights for her script "The Kill" to be used for a workshop for acting students. This short action-drama about an assassin who's sent to kill his colleague and former partner was picked up by Miami Beach based Andres DB after he discovered it on Script Revolution.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Oscar Moreno whose script "Someday" has been picked up for production. This short story about a paranoid young man who's visited by a woman who claims to be not just from the future, but also his wife, will be made by filmmaking student Murali Mohan Boss. Oscar is a regular in our Script Revolution webinars and always wows us with his concepts and dedication. Definitely check out what else he has to offer on his profile.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Fausto Lucignani whose script "On the Sidewalk" has been found on Script Revolution and now gone into production. This short script about a homeless man and a beggared woman who struggle to forget the past and open their hearts to love, is being made into reality by filmmaker Stacy Langenkamp. Fausto is in fact on a bit of a run lately with two scripts going into produced and one optioned only last month.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Ivor Lloyd who's optioned "Perfect Bodies", Street Cleaners", and "Crooked" to 2 Hot Films. These two comedy pilots and a drama episode represent 75% of this portfolio optioned already so be quick to snap up his remaining material and be sure to follow him for any new listings.

Congratulations to Thomas Murphy who's optioned his Horror-Mystery "Immured" to Indian film-maker Rinoshun K. Originally set in London, England, the micro-budget feature will be rewritten to take place in an Indian location and be shot in two languages, Tamil and Telugu. An exciting step for Thomas, Rinoshun's previous micro-budget movie "The Ghost and Me" certainly shows what he's capable of.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Fausto Lucignani who's recently had his scripts "Aborting Love" produced in Canada and "Love Implant" produced in Sweden. In addition to this, he's also optioned his short drama "The Health Aide" about an African-American health aide working for an elderly Italian-American woman who realizes that psychological slavery is still alive.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Désirée Nordlund who has optioned her scripts "Courting" and "Cranberry Beauty" to Rares Barbu. Two ultra-short comedies covering the topics of how to flirt and sensual dreams, the films made from these scripts will be used to expand Rares' portfolio.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Marven Likness who has gained representation with LS Book Services, LLC. Marven, after finding this connection via Script Revolution, will be working with his new agent, Lisa Simpson, who will be shopping his scripts, finding him ghost writer work, and helping turn books into screenplays.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Michael F Donoghue who's optioned his script "The Hero Code" to Robert Sebastian Webb. This is Michael's first success on Script Revolution, and it has further energized his passion for the art of screenwriting. A short story that pays homage to those who helped us get through the COVID-19 Pandemic, The Hero Code is about a Gotham City payroll clerk who becomes the subject of a post-COVID inquiry after she redefines what it means to be a hero. Robert, ER nurse in a previous life, felt that the script really struck a chord with him and needs to be made.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Zack Zupke who's optioned his script "The Confession". The script, a short drama with the logline "Family confession day comes but once a year for a small southern family, but once too often for an abusive father figure with a secret weakness." has been picked up by Little Flame Films based in Bristol, UK. 

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Brandi Self who has optioned "Bargain Store" to Robert Sabastian Webb. This is now Brandi's third success story on Script Revolution thanks to the way they have embraced the platform to its fullest, this time being a short story about a disgruntled small-town bargain store worker that meets a soldier who encourages her to stand up to her perverted boss.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Jason K. Allen who's optioned his short horror-comedy "Night of the Swingin' Dead" to Atlanta-based producer Clarke Douglas after it was discovered on Script Revolution. The script, which won Best Short Screenplay at the 2018 Nashville Film Festival, was originally written for Jason to produce himself but then the pandemic happened so he got busy with other writing projects - and never got around to it. He's now very excited to see how talented young filmmaker Clarke interprets his vision.

Congratulations to Paul Knauer who's optioned his script "Lines" to Celeste Hoang. A short thriller about a mother and daughter, struggling to get by, who find themselves eluding gangsters when their deadbeat, drug-addicted husband/father can’t pay the gangsters the money they’re owed, it was found on Script Revolution after being reviewed by Michael J Kospiah as part of Shootin' the Shorts. Production is scheduled for later this year with Celeste set to produce and direct.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Shaun Needham who's optioned his feature script "Reminding Sheila" to Catherine E Greene of Skolebrød Productions after it was found on Script Revolution. An important story about dealing with dementia, the project is currently in development in the US and has led to Shaun, who's based in the north of England, getting his first IMDb credit.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Oscar Moreno who's optioned his feature script "Regreso" to Jeff McDonald of Shades of Utopia after it was found on Script Revolution. Oscar has been a very active participant on Script Revolution, a regular in our Zoom meets with Shane Stanley who was inspired to revisit this action-thriller about a recently paroled convict targeted for death by her ex-girlfriend and vengeful cartel boss after studying the "My Secret Formula for Breaking-In as a Screenwriter" article in the Script Revolution blogs.

Congratulations to Robert Remy who's optioned his contained horror feature "THE SHUT-IN", a script about a young couple who con their way inside the home of a noted recluse only to become trapped in her struggle to prevent a demonic force from escaping the premises, to Matt Rabidou who discovered it via Script Revolution.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Brandi Self who has optioned her short script "Mabel", a Drama-Fantasy about a depressed young man who struggles to keep up with his girlfriend who keeps disappearing at the most inopportune times, to Toronto based Vietnamese filmmaker Logan Thai after he found it via Script Revolution. Mabel is already in pre-production and we look forward to seeing the completed film.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member David J. Keogh who's horror feature script "Wrathwood" is now going into production. This was David's first horror script which he listed on Script Revolution under the title "Don't Go Outside" before it was spotted by up and coming filmmaker Ammar Agha who loved the effortlessly assembled diverse group of characters and the snappy dialogue. David and Ammar worked together to make improvements and re-named it Wrathwood (something that fits the mythology of the story much better). David says about his experience, "Don't Go Outside was one of my scripts that I...

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Nick Brown who's optioned his feature script "Five Below" to RedOne Studios. An inventive twist on the superhero genre, you might recognise this sci-fi script from the featured section and front page, demonstrating how gaining favourites over time and investing in a quality poster image can gain valuable additional exposure on the site.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Alexandra Keister who has sold her script "Nacho Date", a comedic short story about a man who mistakes a suicidal woman for his Tinder date, to Paul Duncan who's currently crowdfunding additional funds and planning to start shooting at the end of the month. This is actually Alexandra's second recent win via Script Revolution after Brian Carlson, who initially inquired about Nacho Date, went on to pick up a different script from her portfolio.

Congratulations to Rockstar member Gary Piazza who’s optioned his horror thriller feature “Dig Me No Grave” to Silent D Pictures ltd and Rocket Sky High Motion Pictures ltd in the UK. Shooting under the directorship of Ranjeet S. Marwa, production is planned to begin sometime in April with a crew already assembled.

“Thirty years of highs and lows with more highs and more lows...then bam. Finished this script in August, was a winner of the 13horror.com screenplay competition, then a Script Revolution member happened by the script and noticed its theme fit the needs of a close director friend”...

Congratulations to Rockstar member James Brosnahan who describes Script Revolution as a "game changer" for him. James has sold his short script "Look Alive" to Ashley Fordinal who's aim is to produce in time for the BEA Film Festival that is coming up this December and sold his other short script "Kansas Kid" to Dunjey Productions which is planned for production next year.

Congratulations to Glyn Jones who's optioned his supernatural western feature "Dead Wrong" to Troy Chadwick, a filmmaker based in Southern California who found the screenplay via Script Revolution after it made it into the Featured Scripts section of the site.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Jerry Robbins who has optioned his female led winter holiday themed feature "Christmas At Exit 24" to a producer in Los Angeles. This is Jerry's second big success story after selling a horror feature script which was also found via Script Revolution.

After being featured on Shootin' The Shorts, Rockstar Member John Hunter's short script "Companion Shop" was picked up by German director Ivy Jelisavac. I'm delighted to say the short film is now complete and available to view.
