Will Beall Signs Two Script Deal With Warner Bros.

Will Beall Signs Two Script Deal With Warner Bros.

Despite reports that Warner Bros. was less than happy with screenwriter Will Beall following a disappointing theatrical run for Gangster Squad, the studio has signed Beall to a blind two script deal. Read on for details.





A few weeks back there was a report that Will Beall's Justice League script was quote, "terrible" and that the studio was looking for new writers because the script was so bad they couldn't attract a quality director. Well, WB has just signed Beall to a blind two script deal, meaning he can write about whatever he likes and the studio will pay him, a significant sign of faith in a writer who's just starting his career. This doesn't sound like actions a dissapointed studio would take. While you can't deny that Gangster Squad underperformed, the film has currently earned $96M on a $60M production budget. Variety goes on to report that at this moment, it is unknown whether the studio will use Beall's script for Justice League. They also report that he was (possibly still is) on the shortlist of writers meeting with Universal for The Legend of Conan which will see Arnold Schwarzenegger return to the role that made him famous. More details on the Justice League film as the story unfolds.
