New Method Of Script Pitching: Online
The purchase of Des Moines-based author James Erwin’s first script pitch was accomplished with an unusual route: the social news aggregator website Reddit.com. Warner Bros just bought Rome, Sweet Rome after Reddit customers chosen to raise his idea up from the site’s webpage.Madhouse Entertainment told Deadline it spotted the publish and approached Erwin, a 2-time Risk! champion, to build up his concept for any quick purchase.The concept? Contemporary U.S. Marine corps by some quirk of fate are moved to The Italian Capital where they have to deal with Roman scores. Since the Marine corps’ presence disturbs history’s timeline, they have to set things back on the right course to come back home.
