The Weinstein Company is offering a contest for screen writers. They announced it recently on their Facebook page. They are partnering with NextMovie and Film.com to offer the contest winner a chance to pitch his/her screenplay to a Weinstein development executive. To enter, “like” TWC Facebook page and follow the link provided there.
I have entered my screenplay adaptation of The Prodigal. Although I know most production companies run from movies set at sea because of the inherent nightmare of filming on water, I figured it’s worth a shot. I think the structure of the story would work very well in the three-act format of a motion picture.
So wish Jack Mallory luck!
