Success Stories: FEB'7 Another deal signed today

Phillip "The Man Who Can'" Hardy

Another deal signed today

I'm pleased to announce that I signed a deal today with producer Richard Clark Jr. to shop my award winning screenplay Four Negro Girls In A Church, which is based on the story of the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama in 1963.

Additionally, I have have a meeting with producer Shaun O'Banion next week, after connecting with him via Stage 32 Happy Writers. He's also read Four Negro Girls In A Church and another screenplay I wrote, and is is interested in developing a project. I'll keep folks posted on how things develop.

A word of caution, Uncle Phil. I was contacted by someone also named Richard Clark Jr. from NC who liked a thriller of mine he saw on InkTip. He asked to option it on condition he be allowed to rewrite it and take sole writer credit for the script. Needless to say, I refused. The name might just be a coincidence, but maybe not.

Phillip "The Man Who Can'" Hardy


My guy is in LA and I vetted him out pretty well. Our attorney reviewed agreement is for a finished product and states nothing about rewrites. So I'm pretty confident we're dealing with different people. Additionally, my agreement is non-exclusive, giving the producer a limited time ability to match other offers I can entertain for this screenplay.

But thanks for your concern.
