The Brothers Bloom a con man movie – screenplay - posted by Don

Over on the Movie Scripts page.

The Brothers Bloom – undated, original shooting script by Rian Johnson – hosted by: rcjohnso – in zip/pdf format

The Brothers Bloom are the best con men in the world, swindling millionaires with complex scenarios of lust and intrigue. Now they’ve decided to take on one last job – showing a beautiful and eccentric heiress the time of her life with a romantic adventure that takes them around the world.

Rian writes on on his site of the script, It was originaly called “Penelope,” a name I still prefer, but we had to change the title when another film beat us to it. This is the original shooting script, and bears some differences from the finished film. The most obvious of these are in the final act, although tonally I think the script in general is a bit darker and more melancholy than what came out on the screen.

When you have a moment, do check out Rian’s Website where, among other things, he has a Discussion Forum where, among other things, he discusses his upcoming sci-fi/action movie Looper which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis and Emily Blunt. – Don

A Place of Echoes by Reggie Davis

(Thriller) – A place of echoes is a poignant story of an outsider artist and documentary photographer haunted by years of childhood abuse and a self-abused performance artist, working at the most intimate level, his body becoming a precise evocation of a victimized body, reflecting past trauma, who like the other becomes the visceral imprint they place in their work. Both living out a hard-living lifestyle: excessive use of drugs and alcohol and abusive relationships. They cross paths at a sad-sweet intersection of loss, sacrifice and redemption. Together they confront and release their inner demons, creating art that affirms and celebrates life with a regenerative force that carries over to their lives as they learn the meaning of compassion, and forgiveness. 89 pages (doc – formatting: )
