Jennifer Eight and Memoirs of a Geisha scripts - posted by Don

Two new scripts on the ‘net. Thanks to Donovan (formerly of FMA) and Daily Script there is the June 1991 early draft of Jennifer Eight by Bruce Robinson (who also penned “Withnail & I”). Donovan comments, “Jennifer Eight was notoriously too long to be released without major re-editing and re-shoots. The script was written in a deceptive way, with a lot of dialogue ‘hidden’ in the prose. Because of this, so many scenes had to be cut (to bring the film under 3 hours) that reshoots were needed just so the ending would still make sense. It was also rumoured that the reshoots even changed the identity of the killer… but that isn’t true. …Bruce Robinson has said he’ll never revisit the film for a DVD ‘Director’s Cut’, so the only way to know what he originally intended was to read this script. So here it is, in case anyone else is interested.”

Additonally, thanks to Screentalk there is an undated, unspecified draft of Memoirs of a Geisha by Robin Swicord (based on the best selling novel by Arthur Golden). Those would be found on the Movie Scripts page. – Don
