Every year Franklin Leonard of the William Morris agency releases his Black List of the best unproduced screenplays, of which a remarkable handful have been made soon after making the list. The most remarkable aspect of this year's list? It features "The Social Network" by Aaron Sorkin -- quite odd for a film that supposedly shot in October.
The good news may be that the screenplay is considered to be very good and should be made into a film, possibly quelling the booing of some of this project's hysteric early haters. The bad news? Either the project wasn't indeed quite as fast-tracked as media had reported or is indeed on hold. Or Mr. Leonard confused an already on the way 2010 release with possible candidates for the best films never made.
What a mystery!
