Screenwriter to watch?

Hey, awesome...! Looks like League-pal Shauna C. has been listed in Variety as a "Screenwriter to Watch". Let us hope they mean track her career, and not that they feel Shauna is making weird, spastic movements or something that we should all be on the watch for.

Here's the IMDB page for Whip It!

Its worth noting that joining Shauna on this list is J. Michael Straczynski. JMS is a popular comic writer, who did (IMHO) a good run on Spider-Man in recent years. He's also the mastermind behind Babylon 5, a sci-fi show that I was addicted to for a few years in college. I always thought JMS should do a run on Superman, but it hasn't happened yet.

Anyway, Shauna is keeping good company in the pages of Variety. Its really weird to see someone you know being talked up by Drew Barrymore.

Randy, you need to get on that. Where's your quote from Drew?

Wait. When did Shauna become a girl's girl? What's wrong with snarky and glib? (it's gotten me this far...) And "grounded in reality"? For the love of god, she's friends with Ryan!
Well, subtle inaccuracies aside, congrats to Shauna! Westwood Warriors in the pages of Variety...

Up is down.
Black is white.

I think shen says "girl's girl", its best tro translate as "grrls' grrl".

I've read the screenplay, and its not exactly "Clueless". I think it'll be fun and funny, even if it is squarely NOT set at my demographic.
