If it were such an awesome screenplay it would have been filmed years ago.

When you look at the low/no budget indie films that have been produced and performed spectacularly well in the intervening decades it tells me that there is something flawed with the story or script.

I do agree with the writer of TFA when he complains about the template/cookie cutter nature of screenplays coming out of Hollywood right now. When I can predict with near accuracy spoken lines, action on screen or plot points well in advance of the onscreen reveal it says a lot about what is coming out of Hollywood as entertainment.

Directed by that guy that does all the hipster movies that Bill Murray stars in.

Incorrect assumptions. As the script's well-known in Hollywood, it's owned by someone, likely one of the studios. Once a script gets into the studio system, it's almost impossible to get it out, and it's completely impossible to get it produced unless some exec greenlights the project.

It sounds like Charlie Kauffman (knowing it will never see the light of day) lifted a lot of the tone from it for Adaptation.

Just keep Will Ferrell and his ilk away from that and we'll be fine.
