"Backstory": Issue 25

…by Backstory magazine.

While most of the piece is about my most recent spec script—Saving Charlie Chaplin—making last year’s Black List, the article also dips into how I got into this insane industry in the first place, as well as mentioning some upcoming projects.

Backstory is an iPad-exclusive magazine, so you’ll first need to download their app. Then, you’ll need to purchase Issue 25 (the one with Jackie on the cover) and look for the feature Blacklist Tales: Saving Charlie Chaplin.

You’ll know you’re in the right place if you see this big scary mug staring at you:

"Blacklist Tales: Saving Charlie Chaplin"

Thanks to Backstory and Danny Munso for the awesome opportunity.

Already started on my new spec,

The Black List 2016

Last week, I mentioned how humbled and honored I was that my newest script, Saving Charlie Chaplin, had made it onto this year’s The Hit List.

This morning, things got even better when I found out that Chaplin had also made it onto 2016’s The Black List. To make matters even more awesome, Black-ish creator Kenya Barris officially made the announcement on Twitter.

Again, I can’t express how much this means to me, and I’m so thankful for all of the love, encouragement, and support.

Guess I better get started on a new script now, huh?

The Hit List 2016

Yesterday, The Hit List—an annual ranking of the best spec screenplays of 2016—named my newest script, Saving Charlie Chaplin, as one of the best of 2016. The list is determined by members of the film industry who vote for their favorite script of the past year.

To put it in perspective, 372 scripts were eligible. Of those, 92 made the list. And of those 92 scripts, Saving Charlie Chaplin came in at #14 with 47 votes.

For those of you who aren’t all that familiar with the film industry (or this list), this is a pretty big deal. I’m so honored to be on The Hit List this year, and am super appreciative of everyone who voted for Saving Charlie Chaplin.

Now… let’s sell this thing!

Robert Downey Jr. should reprise the title role,
