This year’s Blood List has named the 13 best genre scripts around town, and in its sixth year the annual screenplay contest is expanding its scope to include hot books, TV pilots, and young scribes ripe for signing. Taking top honors in 2014 is sci-fi thriller Bird Box from The Thing and Final Destination 5 scribe Eric Heisserer, an apocalyptic tale of a woman trying to lead her children to safety – all three blindfolded – after monsters descend on earth that turn people insane on sight. Universal set Heisserer to adapt the manuscript from Josh Malerman in 2013 for Mama helmer Andy Muschietti. Previous Blood List alumni include Black Swan, Stoker, Warm Bodies, and the upcoming Blumhouse thriller The Boy Next Door.
Like the Black List naming the top unproduced screenplays circulating around Hollywood, the genre-focused Blood List taps exec votes to determine each year’s best unmade horror, sci-fi, and thriller scripts. »

Fox's "Gang Related" won't be getting a second life. The freshman drama created by Chris Morgan ("The Troop," "Fast and Furious") has been canceled by the network after a single season, according to Deadline. Originally slated for midseason, the show was ultimately aired during the summer where it garnered unimpressive ratings throughout its 13-episode run. Starring Ramon Rodriguez, Terry O'Quinn, RZA, Jay Hernandez and Sung Kang, "Gang Related" centered on the Gang Task Force of the Los Angeles Police Department. Deadline reports that Fox at one point considered bringing the series back for a Summer 2015 run but ultimately decided against it. The final episode aired August 14.
