High Concepts

Stumbled across this site by accident, but I'll be returning regularly. "Done Deal", actual movie script deals, with story synopses. An example...

Hip Hop Nanny: A Scottish woman comes to the United States to work as a nanny for a hip hop/rap family.

Sold to Disney for "low six figures."

Run, Fat Boy, Run: A charming but oblivious overweight guy leaves his fiancée on their wedding day only to discover years later the he really loves her. To win her back, he must finish the New York marathon while making her realize the her new handsome, wealthy fiancé is the wrong guy for her.

Sales price unknown.

Curly Oxide and Vic Thrill: A Hasidic Jew and a grizzled rock musician form a band.

Based on a true story from a segment about the duo on National Public Radio. Lorne Michaels and John Goldwyn will produce. Sold for mid-six against seven-figure.

Who could make this stuff up?
