Warner Bros. Pictures & Veerhuis Pictures Australian Script Writing Opportunity
Warner Bros. Pictures, The Black List and Veerhuis Pictures have launched the inaugural Australian Script Writing Opportunity. Finalists for this opportunity will be considered for a two-step blind feature film writing deal as a part of this partnership with Warner Bros. and Veerhuis Pictures.
To be considered for this opportunity, Australian screenwriters must host their script on blcklst.com for at least one week during the submission period, which opens on June 14, 2018. The evaluations deadline for this opportunity will be August 13, 2018, and the final deadline is September 13, 2018 at 11:59PM AEST (Australian Eastern Standard Time.)
After the close of the submission period on September 13, 2018, The Black List will determine a short list of writers and present them to Warner Bros. Pictures and Veerhuis Pictures. Warner Bros. Pictures will then announce the recipient(s), if any, of a blind script deal. If a writer is selected for a blind script deal, such writer will be engaged by Warner Bros. Pictures (or an affiliated entity) to write a new feature film script.
Warner Bros. Pictures hopes to announce any recipients of the blind script opportunity later in 2018.
