The Black List is an annual film-industry-nominated selection of the 'best unpublished screenplays' currently doing the rounds of Hollywood.
Stephany Folsom's 1969: A Space Odyssey, Or How Kubrick Learned to Stop Worrying and Land on the Moon is due to get its first public airing in the form of a live script reading at The Los Angeles Theater on June 14th.
The idea is a clever one: NASA's Apollo Space Program is faltering - how can they get mercurial film-maker Stanley Kubrick to film a fake moon landing, in order to 'win' the Cold War space race?
The script has generated a lot of buzz, and with previous 'fake movie' hit ARGO also being a past Black List nominee, the feeling is that with enough momentum, '1969' will eventually make it to the screen, too.
