He was the only writer to work his script for "Miss Sloane (2016)". This is a rarity in the movie industry.
"Miss Sloane (2016)" was the first screenplay writer Jonathan Perera has ever written. He started writing it when he was 30-years-old while living in Asia. It was produced only 2 years later.
His "Miss Sloane (2016)" script was discovered from a query letter by the writer's manager in Spring 2014, and further developed and exposed to the market in early 2015. The screenwriter was living in Asia at the time and was attempting to solicit industry reps over the Internet. In less than one year, the spec script was acquired, attracted an Oscar-nominated director and actress, procured financing and distribution, and was put on a progress-to-production track.
