An inaugural screenwriting lab co-founded by Margot Robbie, designed to help women writers break into the action and franchise film market, has seen a stunning 100% sales return on six original pitches.
It’s not only a win for representation in a male-dominated space, it’s a victory for feature film sales at a time when coronavirus has plunged the theatrical market into chaos.
The program is titled The Lucky Exports Pitch Program, and was created by Christina Hodson and Morgan Howell of Hodson Exports and Robbie, Josey McNamara, and Tom Ackerley of LuckyChap Entertainment.
The six writers include Sue Chung, Charmaine DeGraté, Eileen Jones, Faith Liu, Dagny Looper, and Maria Sten.
Almost all projects were sold in a week-long roadshow to major buyers across the industry.
The feature is in development and has been acquired for distribution by Sony with development by Blumhouse.
