Fox, Ridley Scott Pick Up Brad Ingelsby Spec ‘A Better Place’

Fox, Ridley Scott Pick Up Brad Ingelsby Spec ‘A Better Place’
Exclusive: Fox has just closed a mid- against high-six-figure deal for A Better Place, a spec script by Brad Ingelsby that will be produced by Scott Free’s Ridley Scott and Michael Schaefer, with Michael Pruss exec producing. This amounts to a reteam for Ingelsby and Scott. Ingelsby was a 27-year-old AFI grad living at home with his parents in Pennsylvania and working for his father’s insurance business when his very first script, Low Dweller, sold for $650,000 against $1.1 million to Relativity in 2008, with Scott attached to direct and Leonardo DiCaprio to star. Scott and DiCaprio both dropped out but remained producers, and the project eventually became Out Of The Furnace, the gritty drama that Scott Cooper directed with Christian Bale, Casey Affleck, Woody Harrelson, Zoe Saldana and Willem Dafoe. It was a throwback movie that proved too rough for mainstream audiences, a lot like the Cormac McCarthy-scripted The Counselor,

Todd Field To Write & Direct Adaptation Of Bestseller 'Beautiful Ruins'
Are we finally going to see a new movie from director Todd Field? It has been a far too long seven years since his excellent "Little Children" and we've been patiently waiting for "The Creed Of Violence" to get moving, while Field has taken to directing Captain Morgan commercials and producing the brewing "Hold On To Me" with Robert Pattinson and Carey Mulligan. And now, Field is lining up another movie to direct, but one that will certainly find him courting his biggest audience yet.  Via his Cross Creek Pictures shingle, Field is teaming with Smuggler Films, to produce, co-write and direct "Beautiful Ruins." The film is an adaptation of author Jess Walter's massive bestseller, and she'll help pen the screenplay. You can see why this makes such a good big outing from the logline already, with the story beginning in the spring of 1962 off the Ligurian Sea, centering

Liam Neeson Just Wants to Kick Ass Now, Will Star in ‘Run All Night’ Next

Liam Neeson seems intent on making money off his somewhat-newly-minted role as Hollywood’s Only Action Star, as Deadline Hollywood reports that the actor has now signed on to star in the Brad Ingelsby-penned Run All Night. Warner Bros. is also reportedly negotiating with with director Jaume Collet-Sera to helm the project. Neeson and Collet-Sera are currently filming Non-Stop together, that Neeson-as-air-marshal actioner that sounds like a ton of fun, though obviously the merits of the resulting project remain to be seen. The real fly in the ointment? The lackluster Unknown, the pair’s first team up from 2011, which disappointed audiences eager to embrace a post-Taken Neeson. As long as they don’t bring Unknown co-star January Jones on board for Run All Night, we should be just fine. The story of Run All Night seems to be relatively straightforward, so hopefully it’s got some tricks up its sleeve. Neeson

Full 2012 Black List of Best Unproduced Scripts

Every year, film executive Franklin Leonard releases his list, called The Black List, of most-liked unproduced screenplays in Hollywood. This year's list was compiled from the suggestions of 290 film executives, each of whom picked up to ten of their favorite scripts. Since the list started in 2004, many screenplays ended up being turned into films. In 2005, two of the top three scripts were "Lars and the Real Girl" which was nominated for Best Original Screenplay Oscar, and "Juno" which actually won the Oscar. See the 2012 Black List below, broken up by how many votes each screenplay received. Some of the projects are already in the works. 65 - Draft Day (Rajiv Joseph, Scott Rothman) On the day of the NFL Draft, Bills General Manager Sonny Weaver has the opportunity to save football in Buffalo when he trades for the number one pick. He must quickly decide what he's willing to sacrifice in

Draft Day, A Country of Strangers & Rodham Top the 2012 Black List

There is either a couple of football fans or Jerry Maguire/Moneyball with this year’s most liked unproduced screenplay. Close to 300 hundred film executives provided with the Black List creators a top ten of their favorite screenplays of the year and the consensus first overall pick (with 65 votes) comes from the recently featured in Variety (10 Screenwriters to Watch 2012) tandem of Rajiv Joseph & Scott Rothman and their drama which has nothing to do with enlisting in the armed forces. Draft Day – about the day in the life of a fictitious Buffalo Bills Gm appears to currently be in turnaround — which only means I expect to see this greenlight perhaps a little later than sooner – worth noting: top spot almost guarantees that the film will indeed go into production (2006, 2010 and 2011 are the exceptions.) Among the more alluring logline subjects we find on the list, I’d be keen on reading the
