Robert De Niro Stars in Script Pipeline Contest Winner “Killing Season”

By | Slider

Killing Season, starring Robert De Niro and John Travolta, was released in 2013. Produced by Millennium Films, the movie is based off the period thriller script Shrapnel by Evan Daugherty, which won the 2008 Script Pipeline Screenwriting Competition. The project was later re-written with a contemporary backdrop and modified plot. The spec helped Evan garner meetings with major studios, landing him an early job with Warner Bros. to rewrite their He-Man franchise. Although that project didn’t move forward, he later sold Snow White and the Huntsman to Universal for $3 million and become one of the most in-demand writers in Hollywood.
