In this video, BlueCat Founder and Judge Gordy Hoffman discusses what to do if there are similar screenplays in the market. At some point in your screenwriting career, you’ll get into writing a screenplay and notice that the movie you are currently writing is more or less already being made. That’s why it is important to do your research before and while you are writing. Should you abandon your project? If you’re looking to sell it, most likely. Agents will not be interested in product that has already hit the market. However, there are less-commercial options available for salvaging your writing.
