The Black List

So do you want to know which scripts every agent in Hollywood is currently working the phones trying to get their hands on? Take a look below. Today the folks behind The Black List took to Twitter and (somewhat tediously) revealed the finalists of the 2013 list one by one. Well, they've all been compiled and while we await some kind of synopses to know what they are all about, there are still a couple that stick out anyway.

"American Sniper," the NAVY Seal drama that already has Bradley Cooper attached to star and Clint Eastwood to direct, makes an appearance, to too does the script for "Pan" that has Joe Wright set to helm for a 2015 release date. Another one that caught our eye is the intriguingly titled, "1969: A Space Odyssey or How Kubrick Learned to Stop Worrying and Land on the Moon."

Lots more to discover, so check out the full list below. [Deadline]
