Scripts wanted – FEATURE LENGTH COMEDY SCRIPT WANTED

May 21, 2009

Completed Feature Length Script wanted – we’re looking for the next generation to the Apatow comedy.

We have raised the budget for an Ultra Low Budget Comedy for one of our directors’ next project. The money is in the bank, now all we need is a brilliant script.

In 1998 it was There’s Something About Mary, in 2000 it was Chuck and Buck, then in 2004 Judd Apatow took over with The 40 Year Old Virgin and followed that with Knocked Up.

We’re looking for the next phase in the comedy genre for guys and ladies. The next generation of hilarious, well written, timely, crazy stories for the mid to late 20s crowd.

The lead male character needs to be the lovechild of Paul Rudd, Michael Cera and Seth Rogen.

The lead female character could be an Anna Faris, Katherine Heigl, Kristen Bell, or Mila Kunis, Ellen Page lovechild…

I think you get the picture.

We don’t want a rip off of any of the above movies. We want to take the whole genre to the next stage. Surprise us! Make us laugh! Make us reflect! Make us feel all fuzzy inside!

Requirements:
The story can only be shot in Southern California
It has to be able to be done in the SAG ultra low budget range (so no Gone With the Wind, Arabian Knights scenes)
No attachments (director, producer, mother, girlfriend, etc..,) to the script other than you — the brilliant writer.

We would like to go into preproduction by July or August 2009, so the script has to be finished and ready to be bought. You also have to be available to do a rewrite if needed in the next couple of months.

Non-WGA writers welcome. It will be a SAG Ultra Low Budget – so this won’t be your huge financial script sale… but the film will be produced and amazing – not sitting on the studio shelves like so many of our friends’ terrific stories.

TO SUBMIT:
Email a LOGLINE and SYNOPSIS only, in the body of the email (NOT as an attachment, and NOT the whole script), to: metaphorcomedy2009@gmail.com

If we laugh, cry and can’t stop thinking about your pitch – we’ll ask you for the script.

We will definitely delete all attachments before opening to not get out lawyers upset at us… so please put the pitch/synopsis in the body of the email.

EVEN IF YOU HAVE OUR PHONE NUMBER &/OR OTHER EMAILS – PLEASE DO NOT USE THEM REGARDING THIS PROJECT.

Thank you!!!
