HOLLYWOOD’S TOP SCREENPLAY BUYERS: THE SECRET EXPOSED (BONUS: 15 Actor-Producers with $100-150 Million Studio Deals)
by Dov S-S Simens on August 11, 2017
SELL YOUR SCRIPT… BUT TO WHO BUYS!
NO-BULL: Want to Produce a Movie? Want to Sell your Script? Want to Finance your Idea/Treatment?
Then, stop calling Movie Studios. Stop pitching nobodies at cocktail parties. Stop thinking you’re getting an agent-who-believes-in-you. Stop hustling Bankers and Venture Capitalists. Stop buying $25 tickets for 10-minute pitches at pitchathons to secretaries. Stop spending hard earned money fantasizing Crowd Funding.
Stop. Stop. Stop.
Pitch and Sell your script to the only people that buy.
(“Only pitch your script to a Development Executive at a Production Company with a Studio Deal.”)
Go directly to the source. Go only to production companies that have been pre-approved by major movie studios, with Development Deals, to make 2-3 feature films for their respective studio next year.
The question now becomes “How does one, an outsider, get a list of Production Companies with Development Deals?”
MOVIE STUDIO DEALS.
NO-BULL: Cut-to-the-chase. Get a list of Production Companies with Studio Deals.
Another alternative is to get a list of celebrity actors (aka: bankable stars) that own a production company (Leonardo de Caprio, Jeremy Renner, Mat Damon, Clint Eastwood, etc.) and are actively producing feature films.
(“Johnny Depp’s company is “Infinitum Nihil” with a Disney studio deal. Can you name his Development Executive? You should! See below to see why he/she is important.”)
OK but how does one get this list?
Simple. The answer is “FACTS ON PACTS”
“FACTS ON PACTS” is a chart created once a year by Variety newspaper that lists the 6 Major Studios (Paramount, 20th, Sony, Disney, Universal, etc.) and 8 Mini-Major Studios (Dreamworks, Lionsgate, Miramax, Anapurna, Marvel Studios, Weinsteins, etc.) and underneath each of their names the chart lists the 6-15 Production Companies that that Studio (Major or Mini-Major) has pre-approved for financing or in Hollywood terms has given a “Development Deal” to.
Facts on Pacts: Sony Ups Roster Despite Recent Challenges
You are only going to send your registered script or pitch your idea to “Production Companies that have Development Deals with Studios and are listed in Facts-On-Pacts”.
The list is basically filmmakers gold for it lists, with names and addresses
5 ACTORS WITH PRODUCTION COMANIES WITH DEALS
1: ED BURNS
COMPANY: MARLBORO RD GANG, 334 E 90th st, New York, NY 10128
2. SEAN COMBS
COMPANY: BAD BOY WORLWIDE ENTERTAINMENT, 1440 Broadway, 30/F, New York, NY 10036
3. LEONARDO DiCAPRIO
COMPANY: APPIAN WAY, 9255 Sunset Blvd, #615, West Hollywood, CA 90069
(“My next “2-DAY FILM SCHOOL” is August 19-20 & December 9-10. Hope to see you.”)

5. BRAD PITT
COMPANY: PLAN B ENTERTAINMENT, 9150 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, CA 90212
WHAT IS THE DEAL? ASSUME OPTION
Let’s assume you reach one of the above actors or their VP of Devopment or at least their assistant (you’ll get him/her when you phone) and you convert the quick chat into “go ahead send the script”; and they read the script; and they love the script; and they state “we want to purchase this” then what kind of offer will you get?
(“Script sales are not cash but Option Deals.”)
The answer is “although they say they are buying it” they really are setting a purchase price (many times quite huge) but are only giving you a small deposit or downpayment and in essence “they are optioning it.”
An example being….
(A) We love the script. We will give you $250,000.
(B) $10,000 in cash.
(C) $240,000 to be paid later (upon commencement Principal Photography)
(D) For a 24 month exclusive.
(E) Plus, 2 Extension periods of 12 months each (if desired) at $3,000 each.
There are hundreds, if not thousands, of variations of this with numerous deal memo points clearly defined but the bottom-line is, on above purchase, they are only out of pocket $10,000, possibly $16,000 total, for exclusive rights to your property/script for 48-months.
BONUS: 15 FAMOUS ACTORS WITH DEVEOPMENT DEALS
Below are 15 mega-famous actors who have production companies that have been pre-approved for financing to make movies for the respective studio.
Enjoy the list and take action.
Google the name of the production company, discern the phone number and address.
Phone the Production Company and ask the receptionist for name of the company’s Development Executive.
Now armed with that name and your registered/copyrighted great script… smile & dial… mail & pitch.
Turn it over to God and move on with your life.

I would like a producer and director and production company help my company, Black Avenue Entertainment make my movie N or Out, a movie.
I accidentally wrote my brief synopsis to you in this section, and did not hit the “POST” key, however when I returned from reading all of the printed information, it appears that you may have received my synopsis before I eliminated several of the details that I typed. Please understand that my email was not prepared for your ownership or your perusal. I have a copy of all of these transactions and all that I have typed. Please do not attempt to steal my idea for my script, or any other relentless behavior. After 22 years of being a Cop, 9 years as an Investigator in the Sex Crimes Unit and the same 9 years attached to the Homicide Division. I retired as a 9 year Sergeant, which is difficult for a female to become. I was also on the S.W.A.T. Team as a Hostage Negotiator, for ten years. And, when I started my career as a Patrol Officer, I was used for over two years as an undercover 14 year old, to hook up with Pedophiles that had been talking to one of our District Attorney’s Office Investigators, who logged onto many different Chat Rooms, designed entirely for Pedophiles and Sex Offenders. Because I looked young, I was able to help capturing several chlld rapists. (Their true identity). My DA Investigator started this, on his own and with his own ideas. (He was on Oprah Show, Sally Jesse Ralphial, Dateline etc. I have worked some of the most disgusting and heart renching cases, in the Denver Metro area. My youngest victim of penetrating sexual assault by his father, was 15 months old.
Please, send this to the many publishing companies that belong to so many different Movie Stars, so that maybe one of them would like to learn the truth about the disgusting and unbelievable cases that I worked, or assisted my partners with. Thank you
The case that I would like Mr. Eastwood’s Producers or assistants to read, is a brutal Homicide case, committed by two OG’s of a prominent street Gangs….with the aid of their UBER driver that they hired to be their exclusive driver. So much more occurs in this case, that you have to hear it to believe it. With the modern day UBER transportation choice, this case exposes an unbelievable twist and turn.
Hi everyone, am a script writer who has written and screen played lots of film. My stories are inspired by what happened around me and they are centred on crime detection, life lessons, suspense. I am looking for who to produce them. Here is my WhatsApp contact +2348066824674
Hello People, I am a screenwriter who wrote for nothing, I would like to introduce my greatest script ever written”CONFRONTED”. 105 pages, it’s wonderful. Let me tell you about the story: A story of a man name Mark Williams whose life turned upside down after he made a decision to move to New York from Florida to attend a new relationship with his baby’s mother, his son is two years and his name is Johnny. In the building apartment where he came to live there was a suspicious theft organization going on, probably the superintendent of the building might be the head of the theft going on ; he gave access to the other thieves to come to steal in the building. Mark Williams became a target by them since he knew their secret and telling the police about the theft activities are going on out there.
My Dear Heartly Father, we have sincerely acknowledged you as our father and informed about our family’s poverty and struggling lives. So, if possible, giving financial help to our poor family otherwise do not make fun of our poverty and struggling lives like others. Father is the world’s largest library to travel the world.

I would like to share my newly revised screenplay titled THE SEDUCTIVE SCHOOLHOUSE SCANDAL. The genre is ‘A Slice of Life’, with elements of suspense and crime. It is a shocking and unbelievable story, inspired by my personal experiences while teaching in Camden, New Jersey – labeled as one of the most dangerous and poorest cities in the country. With the unique fusion of fact and fiction, this screenplay depicts deception that is escalating in our country’s educational system.
