THE BLACK LIST 2013

The Black List was compiled from the suggestions of over 250 film executives, each of whom contributed the names of up to ten of their favorite scripts that were written in, or are somehow uniquely associated with, 2013 and will not have begun principal photography during this calendar year.

This year, scripts had to receive at least six mentions to be included on the Black List.

All reasonable effort has been made to confirm the information contained herein.

The Black List apologizes for all misspellings, misattributions, incorrect representation identification, and questionable 2013 affiliations.

It has been said many times, but it’s worth repeating:

The Black List is not a “best of ” list. It is, at best, a “most liked” list.
