Deadline

141113A_0004-p_FotorEXCLUSIVE: Writers Alisha Brophy and Scott Miles, who won this year’s Nicholl’s Fellowship for their screenplay United States of Fuckin’ Awesome, just signed on to adapt Lionsgate’s White Girl Problems. The book, written by “Babe Walker” — who is actually the creation of brothers Tanner and David Oliver Cohen and their friend Lara Schoenhals — was bought by Lionsgate in 2013 for Pitch Perfect producers Elizabeth Banks and Max Handelman through their Brownstone Productions banner.

About WhiteShadow

The writer of these words did not originally want to put words to paper, but to draw the glorious things he saw. However, he could not draw from images in his mind. He could only draw those things he saw that had been drawn by others. He then almost died one day and that urge to draw became the urge to write. Again, however, the fuel was not always there, and before he knew it it was his senior year of high school, and he was tasked to write a 50page novella for a final project. This became the fuel and started his path of being a full-time writer. He may have struggled and may have made no difference in the world of man nor money in his hand, but he still moves forward. He currently is writing a comic book that has an artist who draws the things that are envisioned. Life could be better, but it could be always worse. So he keeps his head low to write but high to live life. This is the story of this man, to know more, read the words he has put into the world of the web. View all posts by WhiteShadow
