Last week, we learned Legendary Entertainment was working on a film adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan’s comic book series Ex Machina. However, the project was going by the name The Great Machine in order to avoid being confused with the sci-fi movie Ex Machina. It turns out that was a smart move, because if it kept that title, it would have been even more confusing since Ex Machina star Oscar Isaac has just closed a deal to play the lead role in the movie, as well as produce it.

In the summer of 2008, Eisner and Harvey Award-winning comic writer Brian K. Vaughan (Lost, Y: The Last Man) sold a high-concept screenplay to DreamWorks called Roundtable. The movie never went into production, the script sat on a shelf collecting dust, and Vaughan went on to become the showrunner of the CBS TV series Under the Dome and continue his career in comics by writing things like the sci-fi/fantasy epic Saga. But now, eleven years later, Vaughan’s Roundtable script will finally see the light of day.
The Black List, the organization that publishes an annual list of the best unproduced screenplays in the industry, is sponsoring a live reading of the script for one night only in Los Angeles, and this sounds like a cool opportunity to experience a story that may otherwise languish in obscurity forever. Read on for the synopsis of Roundtable, and to find out how to get tickets to the show. Read More »
