Birdman – undated, unspecified draft script by Alejandro G. Iñárritu, Nicolás Giacobone, Alexander Dinelaris, Jr., Armando Bo – hosted by: Fox Searchlight – in pdf format

Riggan Thomas, once known quite well to movie theater goers as an iconic super hero called “The Birdman” had recently turned down a fourth installment of the franchise. Now washed up, he attempts to reinvent himself as a director by staging a new retelling of a classic Broadway dramatic play called “What We Talk About When We Talk About Love”. The events leading up to the Saturday night premiere prove to be one disaster after another as the original lead actor is injured while on set and Riggan scrambles to find a replacement, but the replacement proves to be exactly who he needs – a method actor who takes the job way too seriously. But Riggan has a hard time juggling between the set, his replacement actor, his equally washed up daughter, and a host of other disasters that prevent a proper staging of the play. Meanwhile, a New York Times critic who Riggan has to woo threatens to shut down production of the play before it even starts with a scathing review of the opening night …

Movie Poet – The Final Curtain - post author Don



MoviePoet.com is proud to announce the winners of our December 2014 short script competition.

“Christmas Cards” by David M Troop ~ First Place
An elderly man spends Christmas with his friends and family.

“Fair Share” by Pete Barry ~ Second Place
Fay and Eddie find out their relationship is built on lies, damned lies, and statistics.

“Side Scroller” by T. James DeStein ~ Third Place
A video game sprite must overcome the obstacles faced by its predecessors in order to move the world forward.

I am very sad to report that this is the last Movie Poet winner announcement. It is a sad day for the screenwriting community. A lot of screenwriters got his or her start at Movie Poet honing skills with short scripts and a supportive community. I was very lucky to have a supportive relationship with Chris and there are many aspects of Movie Poet that I strived to emulate.

Chris is going to focus on NJ Film School. I hope that those of you in the New Providence, NJ area can support the en devour.
