Congratulations to Rockstar Member Richard Adrian who has optioned "Murderhorn" to a filmmaker in Belgium. The same horror feature script about a troubled boy struggling to cope with his mother’s terminal illness who must learn to control a bloodthirsty manifestation of his anger before it kills everyone he loves also gained the interest of producers in Ontario, leading to a writing assignment for a feature. Both films are planned to into production next year.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Andrew Marshall whose script "Potential Spam" has been produced and directed by Emmanuel Simms. The short comedy about a man who receives a spam phone call and decides to let them have it can be watched here on Vimeo. Andrew has a portfolio of ultra low budget features with Coverfly all-time overall percentile badges for the top 35% or better that are well worth checking out.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Gary Piazza who's script "Red Scarlet" had been picked up by Noirtainment and added to their development slate for 2022 with release anticipated in 2023.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Eric Christopherson who's optioned his script "Vertical" to Sira Kalla. This feature length action-thriller about a window washer who witnesses a murder and becomes trapped on his platform when the perpetrator determines to kill him too will be seeking attachments very soon while being pitched to production houses.

Joseph, who's been a member of Script Revolution for four years now, says that he loves the site and has made many connections here.

Congratulations to Robert Bruinewoud who's had their script "You're Early" produced by Mark Hensley. Mark was itching to make a new short film about two months ago but doesn't consider himself much of a writer. Thankfully he found Script Revolution and ultimately Robert's three page script about a woman finding her partner at the mercy of a desperate burglar after she returns home late at night after class. In a moment of serendipity, Mark then learned about the Rode Reel contest where participants must make a short film that's 3 minutes or shorter, so he cut the runtime back a little and...

Congratulations once again to Lily Blaze who's optioned her script "To Lacusta, Going to the Wars" to Luis Tavaras. A short drama based on the poem To Lucasta, Going to the Wars by Richard Lovelace, the story focuses on an artist who's struggling to finish a masterpiece being confronted by a lover and having to make a choice between art and love. This is Lily's second option in the previous month, having recently had success with her script Understatement.

Congratulations to Max Ruddock who's script "Honk if You're Horny!" has recently been produced after being spotted on Script Revolution. A short romantic drama with a comedic twist, this short script which features a suicidal man whose live's inadvertently saved by a transvestite on a Grindr date who, due a case of mistaken identity, gets into the wrong car, has been produced and directed by Andoni Zorbas. IMDb details here.

Congratulations to Rockstar Member Lily Blaze who's optioned her script "Understatement" to Andres DB. A crime short about how one woman wants to do the right thing while her friend wants to get rid of a dead body and the moonlight reveals a shocking truth about justice, the script will be translated to suit a Spanish-speaking group of acting students before being scheduled to shoot in November.

Congratulations to Tim Westland who's optioned his script "23 and Them!" to Joseph Muhammad. A short sci-fi horror about how those home genetic tests sometimes can reveal more than you expect, the script was reviewed by Shootin' The Shorts before catching the attention of Joseph while he was browsing Script Revolution late at night. 

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.
