El Cantante and The Black Dahlia screenplays - posted by Don

Thanks to “JBM” for the heads up and “Nick” and “Donovan” and Daily Script for these two scripts.

There is an unspecified draft of El Cantante – the Jennifer Lopez/Mark Anthony biopic of Hector Lavoe who is credited with starting the salsa movement in 1975 and bringing it to the United States.

In addition, there is now another, probably early draft of The Black Dahlia.

These would be on the Movie Scripts page. – Don

Stranger Things – Episode 01: Sacred Cow script - posted by Don

Stranger Things TVTwo priests uncover the horrifying truth about the nature of prayers.

And thus begins the premier of the video podcast series Stranger Things with Episode 1 Sacred Cow.

Stranger Things is a science fiction anthology video podcast created by Earl Newton. I am extremely honored that Earl has allowed me to feature the screenplay (pdf format) to the premier episode of Stranger Things – Sacred Cow here in Simply Scripts. This second draft script, which you can read here, also contains additional director’s notes about the evolution of the script from the page to the screen. This is a valuable resource for not only writers, but also folks looking to direct.

Sacred Cow was written by Earl Newton, based on an original story by Scott Sigler.

In addition to reading the script, you can view the video podcast of Sacred Cow on your computer. You can also subscribe to the Stranger Things podcast via iTunes, however if you don’t have a video iPod, you can still view each episode (as well as Earl’s engaging video updates) at StrangerThings.tv.

If you enjoy The Twilight Zone or The Outer Limits or the recent short-lived anthology Masters of Science Fiction, then you will be quite at home with StrangerThings.tv. The writing, the acting and the production quality are top notch and on par with anything you are going to see on television today. This is, to my knowledge, the only video podcast you can watch in High Definition. This ain’t a blurry youtube vid. – Don

Souvenir and 9 more original scripts - posted by Don

Teasing out one script of the recently uploaded batch seems to be the kiss of death… Last week, I highlighted Lost and Found and it got all of two reviews.

I remain undeterred.

Amongst this batch of the 10 original scripts posted on the unproduced scripts page is A.B. Steel’s Souvenir, wherein After a long night of working hard at his new typewriter, a lonely novelist awakens to discover his fiction has become reality. I thought the premise was clever and the execution adequate. A.B. has since sent over a revised script, which is now posted.

So, if Souvenir isn’t your bag, there are still nine other original scripts for your reading pleasure on the unproduced scripts page. – Don
