The Black List of 2011 - Part 2

Posted by Patrick Sauriol on Monday, December 12, 2011

The Black List of 2011 continues with the second-half of the list showcasing the screenplays that received the most number of votes.

Remember, this is a list voted on by Hollywood professionals of what they personally believe to be the best unproduced screenplays written in 2011. You might recognize titles for movies that are in development. That's fine by The Black List rules; the only condition that the screenplay must meet is that it's not being filmed within this calendar year. For Black List 2011 selections like Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained, that makes it valid for Black List inclusion.

If you've missed the first half of the list you can find it here.
