Tracking Board Names Launch Pad Winners

Charlie Neubauer's The Shell has been named the Overall Winner of the 2016 Launch Pad Feature Competition. The script, described as MINORITY REPORT meets TRANSCENDENCE is a sci-fi thriller:

In a future where death has been eradicated thanks to a revolutionary technology that allows people to be resurrected, a petty criminal is tasked with solving the seemingly impossible murder of its inventor - his mother.

The top drama in this year's contest was Dan Hall's Submerged, about a group of plane crash survivors trapped in a shrinking air pocket deep beneath the ocean's surface. The top comedy was Derby City, by Alexis Perkins, described as SAVED meets LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE, about a bartender (and small-time con artist) fleeing a criminal gambling charge who convinces a naive Mormon missionary to drive across country with her. When their truck and money are stolen, they have to resort to hustling pool in order to make it to Utah.

One of this year's finalists, Pete Barry's Marian, had already sold to Sony after a bidding war. The project will star Margot Robbie as Maid Marian, who, after Robin Hood is killed, must take on his mantle in order to avenge his murderer and save England from a secret French invasion.
