Screenwriters, before you submit a script to a producer for evaluation, get this Script Nondisclosure Agreement
signed by the producer to protect your rights and guard against disclosure of details of the script to third parties.
- The Agreement should be signed by any potential producers with whom you have discussions with respect to developing and producing the script.
- The producers agree to keep all information strictly confidential and not disclose it to any third party.
- The writer is disclosing the information to the producer solely for the purpose of allowing the producer to evaluate the script for development into a film project.
- The confidential information is not to be disclosed to any party except those employees of the producer who have a "need to know", and such employees must be bound by a confidentiality agreement with the producer.
- If the producer determines the script is suitable for development, the parties will commence negotiations in that regard.
This Script Nondisclosure Agreement
is provided in MS Word format, and can be edited as required to fit your specific circumstances.
