Warner Bros. announced this week that they have purchased a script written by Rowan RTF alumnus Mark Bianculli and his writing partner Jeff Richard (B.A. Ohio State, Film Studies).
The planned film, The Waiting, is described as having a tone similar to Rear Window. The plot focuses around the mysterious events that happen when “two high school filmmakers decide to create the illusion of a haunting on an unsuspecting neighbor” (Fleming, 2012)
Mark is currently a writers’ assistant on Unforgettable (CBS) and worked previously on Justified (FX).
This is quite an accomplishment for two young screenwriters. Congratulations to Mark and Jeff!
(And, if you see Prof. Bianculli on campus, you might give him a congrats, as well.)
