According to The Scoggins Report, a weekly analysis of the spec and pitch market, 74 original pitches and specs have sold so far in 2012 (not counting the two specs that sold already today). Last year, 72 projects had sold by this time, so it seems like 2012 is on track to match – or even surpass – the record 225 spec and pitch sales in 2011.
The bottom line? It’s a really good time to have an original voice in Hollywood. Sure, we just reported about the sequel to the Spider-man reboot, but there’s just as much room these days for new material.
