April 2009 Script Sales

A somewhat quiet month in April, as lower-budget comedies and dramas, film adaptations from popular novels, and a handful of sci-fi thrillers and fantasy screenplays round out the script sales, joined by a few higher-profile projects from acclaimed writer/directors Robert Rodriguez and Sofia Coppola.

Selected sales include:

–“Born to be a Star,” co-written by Adam Sandler, about a Midwestern nerd who discovers his parents used to be porn stars.

–The latest Robert Rodriguez projects: a crime/drama entitled “Machete” and a follow-up to the “Predator” series.

–Another incarnation (presumably live-action) of “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.”

–The Sofia Coppola project “Somewhere,” drama starring Stephen Dorff and Elle Fanning.
