A film in which Barron Trump is so frightened by the thought of his father, Donald Trump, becoming president that he sets out to sabotages the 2016 elections has been named one of the best-unmade movie scripts of 2019.
The script was written by Nicolas Curcio and is titled “Barron: A Tale of Love, Loss & Legacy.” It made the 15th annual Black List, which highlights the best screenplays that have yet to be made into movies.
In Curcio’s script Barron Trump, a then 10-year-old, attempts to sabotage his father’s 2016 election chances because he is afraid of the impact Trump being president will have not only in his personal life but the world at large.
Franklin Leonard, the founder of the Black List, has stated that he does not “think there’s any scenario where this movie gets made.” However, he added that the script is “an adorable, smart, winning coming-of-age story.”
On Monday, in response to his script being included in the Black List, Curcio posted the following to Twitter: “As someone who nerds out over this list every year because I just love the craft, this is incredible. 2020 is gonna be a good year, baby!!”

Barron Trump, 13, recently made headlines after he was brought up during his father’s impeachment hearings. His mother, Melania, then used Twitter to criticize the politicization of her son during the impeachment proceedings.
Melania Trump rebuked law professor Pamela Karlan for mentioning Barron during an impeachment hearing. During her testimony, Karlan said: “The president can name his son Barron, he can’t make him a baron.”
Karlan would later apologize, saying: “I want to apologize for what I said earlier about the president’s son. It was wrong of me to do that.”

Melania Trump stated that Karlan should be “ashamed of your very angry and obviously biased public pandering, and using a child to do it.”
“A minor child deserves privacy and should be kept out of politics,” she wrote in a tweet back on December 4.

Melania Trump was then accused of hypocrisy last week for remaining silent after her husband attacked 16-year-old climate activist Greta Thunberg on Twitter after she was named Time Magazine Person of the Year.
So ridiculous. Greta must work on her Anger Management problem, then go to a good old fashioned movie with a friend! Chill Greta, Chill! https://t.co/M8ZtS8okzE

Her press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, released a statement saying that Donald Trump’s criticism of Thunberg was “valid.”
Grisham stated that Barron Trump “is not an activist who travels the globe giving speeches,” referring to the difference between him and Thunberg. “He is a 13-year-old who wants and deserves privacy.”
