It was reported that the sequel script to the awards-winning drama comedy has been listed on sale on eBay for the bargain price of $100,001.00.
Though "Juno" director Jason Reitman has ditched the sequel idea, the script of the drama comedy movie's sequel has allegedly been written as it was put on sale on eBay. Slash Film which reported the news first stated that though offered for the bargain price of $100,001.00, the script wasn't being written by the Academy Award-winning scribbler Diablo Cody.
On the auction site, eBay user by the name of 'screenwriter_in_paradise' claimed to be the writer of the script noting, "I have written the sequel." In promoting the sequel script, 'screenwriter_in_paradise' wrote, "Juno grossed over $130 million domestically...If Mr. Mudd, Mandate or FoxSearchlight don't buy than it is available to any legitimate production company that wants to jump on the bandwagon. Your lawyers will tell you the names will have to be changed, so we will call this 111 page script Juno-like or Junoesque. A 4-page sample is available via e-mail. The screenplay is copyrighted and registered with the WGA."
Further, it is noted that the winner of the eBay bidding will get the script's hard copy, electronic PDF file and copy on CD. Meanwhile, "Juno" itself is an Academy Award-winning 2007 drama comedy original film. To date, the film starring acclaimed young actress Ellen Page has grossed $131.1 million in North America only and still remained strong in the top ten box office since its release on December 5, 2007.
