Burning Annie screenplay - posted by Don

Thanks Randy for the heads up on this latest edition to the Movie Scripts page.

Burning Annie - January 12, 2002 production draft script by Zack Ordynans (revisions by Randy Mack) – hosted by: Burning Annie – in pdf format

A dark comedy about Max, who thinks Woody Allen’s “Annie Hall” is a cautionary tale about the futility of romance. Just as he begins to suspect the movie is ruining his love life, his world is turned inside-out by a girl who just might be the modern equivalent of Annie Hall herself.

Zack Ordynans and Randy Mack, writers of Burning Annie are at work on a new film, Funhouse Mirror that they are co-writing and co-directing! It was shot in New York City, they are in post-production, preparing the film for submission to Sundance and beyond. Funhouse Mirror is an odd-couple comedy about two old college buddies reunited after many years and forced to cohabitate… Kind of an Apatowian take on the verite comedy of Greg Mottola and Noah Baumbach (among others).
