ATTN: Aspiring screenwriters
Monkeypaw Productions, a studio founded by Jordan Peele in 2012, has put out an open call for screenplays. According to AV Club, the production company has established a direct line for open submissions on their website, publishing a standard form for screenwriters to fill out.
However, screenwriters should be wary of the lengthy disclaimer published along with the form. It basically absolves Monkeypaw and Sunken Place Studio from any obligation to keep your ideas confidential or even exclusive to the studios (a fairly standard practice in production houses, but you’re rolling the dice here either way.)
Between big and small screens, Monkeypaw has a lengthy schedule of upcoming releases, including Peele’s Get Out follow-up, Us (for which a trailer arrived earlier this week) along with reboots of Candyman and The Twilight Zone.
Send in your submissions today for a shot at developing your scripts and screenplays with one of Hollywood’s premier studios. Stay tuned for Peele’s next transmission.
