Through Script Pipeline, screenwriters have sold millions of dollars in specs
to studios and over a hundred others have found representation, writing
assignments, or optioned, sold, and produced their screenplays.
Sales include 2008 contest-winning script Killing Season starring Robert De Niro and Snow White and the Huntsman starring Kristen Stewart, releasing this June worldwide.
Pitching to the industry is how films get made.
The Great Movie Idea Contest connects you with top film producers looking for new concepts. The old adage, "there are no rules in Hollywood" applies here: any subject matter or genre accepted.
Script Pipeline has always been about access, linking talented
screenwriters with the proper channels in the hopes of selling their
work. Now, all you need is a single, awesome concept.
One grand prize winner and four runners-up will be announced in August, 2012. All finalists receive development assistance from Script Pipeline executives, and the winner gets personal, 1-on-1 meetings with top production companies.

Since we've gone way too long without a good poker movie: DiCaprio also producing a film with Ben Affleck and Justin Timberlake about illegal online gaming, Runner Runner. And former Script Pipeline Workshop "Recommend" writer Michael Starrbury will write an adaptation of The Great Unknown, originally published by Image Comics.
