A screenplay for a movie that is shopped or sold on the open market, as opposed to one commissioned by a studio or production company.
A spec script, also known as a speculative screenplay, is a non-commissioned unsolicited screenplay. It is usually written by a screenwriter who hopes to have the script optioned and eventually purchased by a producer, production company, or studio. Many spec scripts go on to win Academy Awards. Callie Khouri sold Thelma & Louise to Ridley Scott’s production company for $500,000 in 1990; Matt Damon and Ben Affleck sold Good Will Hunting to Castle Rock Entertainment for $675,000 in 1994; and Alan Ball sold American Beauty to DreamWorks Studios for $250,000 in 1998.
