Since 2004, Franklin Leonard has been publishing the Black List - a survey of the most well-liked screenplays from the year that were not yet in production. This week, the nerds review the list from 2010 to see how many ended up as feature films, how many they would have greenlit if they were studio heads, and how many were just variations on a well-worn theme. 2010 was a good year for representation, if you were a secret assassin living an otherwise mundane life, or if you had a small notebook full of obtuse rules that would help you land the perfect mate. Join us now, as we delve deep into the 2010 screenplay Black List.
