What Was New - Return to Was New Archive

Eric Leclere, copyright (c) Eric Leclere March 31, 2006 - Thanks to Margaret for pointing out a broken link to the original screenplay of The Lost Son.

The Lost Son, as a movie, is based loosely on the work of Eric and Margaret Leclere. In addition to reading the script, you can also read the novel as a free download. If you'd rather hold bound paper in your hands rather than reading from a screen, you can buy the book from Amazon.com. In addition, Eric's latest book, entitled A Place of Gardens and Lilies came out in May of last year

You can find the script and more information on the Movie Scripts page.

March 30, 2006 - Thanks to The Stallone Dome we can read some excerpts from the upcoming Rocky Balboa. Note, these are partials and they are jpgs and quite frankly a pain to read. Find your way to them starting at the Movie Scripts page.

March 29, 2006 - Thanks to "Vern" and Daily Script we can read this early unspecified draft of Terrence Malick's The New World. BE over at Movie Page got a sneak peek at the script and commented, "That NEW WORLD script must be one of his first drafts, if not the first. Quite overly theatrical and dissimilar in tone to the final film...". Check it out on the Movie Script page.

.

March 28, 2006 - I guess Tim Minear decided not to share his scripts of The Insider. They are now no longer available.

March 27, 2006 - On the Unproduced Scripts page, we have 27 new scripts up for your reading pleasure.

March 26, 2006 - It is a TV Script and Transcript update!

Thanks to Christina for pointing out that there is another Star Trek: Enterprise transcript site.

Thanks to The Hatch there is another Lost script available on the 'net.

The Weekly Script has a couple more South Park scripts up.

Check 'em all out on the TV Scripts (and transcripts) page.

March 25, 2006 - Thanks to The Daily Script for this heads up on this one.

"...Heat Vision and Jack was created as a 1999 pilot for Fox. Written by Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, directed by Ben Stiller, this series was passed over by Fox despite critical acclaim from those who've been lucky enough to see it.

The pilot was never aired on television, but has recently been screened at several film festivals and was very well received by crowds. HV&J recently won the Silver Spire award at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

The 30 minute pilot is about an astronaut (played by Jack Black) with a medical secret who is on the run from his evil employers with the help of a talking motorcycle called Heat Vision (voiced by Owen Wilson)..."

As you may or may not know, the script to the pilot Heat Vision and Jack has been available on the 'net for some time. Now you can watch the actual pilot thanks to Youtube.

March 22, 2006 - Thanks to BE over at Movie Page for the heads up on this one. Good 'ole J.B.M. has delivered unto us the shooting script to Suspect Zero penned by Zak Penn (tee, hee, hee) with revisions by Billy Ray. You can read this on the Movie Scripts page. Then you can go to the S page and read the unproduced Paul Schrader version.

I got Skype! I talked to Henrik in Finland! Pretty neat. Henrik wants to turn VoiceOver into a podcast. As soon as Henrik and I can recruit a few more scriptarians to the cause - watch out! I'm a screaming podcast fan. I listen to Dr. Madblood's podcast show (either you get it or you don't), EscapePod, Science Friday and a whole truck load of other podcasts. I haven't listened to the radio or watched TV in ages. (Is Bush still president?)

My friend Pip put me on to SoupToys. You download it and you can use your computer desktop as a play area. My personal favorite is to launch the cute little teddy bear across the screen.

March 21, 2006 - As promised. There are twenty-one new or revised unproduced scripts up for your reading pleasure. They would be on the Unproduced Scripts page.

March 20, 2006 - No script update today. I have a stack of unproduced script to get up. I'm dreadfully behind. So, what do I do when I'm really behind? I procrastinate. I'm sure I'll snap out of it in a couple of days and get the thirty or so scripts up. There are some good ones in there, too. I've been reading a lot over the last couple of days.

BE over that Movie-Page sent a nice email over commenting that I've gotten a little "Bloggie" of late. I was about to send him back an e-mail mentioning that I probably should lay off the carbs when I got an e-mail from someone who pointed out that "SimplyScripts" has become a little more "SimplyScripts with the occasional social commentary." Well, SimplyScripts was originally going to be
"Simplyscriptswiththeoccasionalsocialcommentary.com"
but that domain name was taken... Good thing I didn't hit send on that e-mail to BE, then everyone would know I'm a little sensitive about the extra ten pounds I've put on. Blame Bankok Blues. We've been taking the brats there Sundays after Chinese school for Thai food and Blues. The food is good and it is one of the only Kid friendly dives I've ever been to. I recommend the Pad Thai with a side of fries.

"I remember when I lost my mind..."

Andy's sent me a link to Gnarls Barkley. I've been listening to "Crazy" over and over again since I can't seem to stop my MP3 player from playing the same song over and over again.

I finished listening to James Patrick Kelley's Novella Burn. I've started listening to Men Are Trouble which has been nominated for a Nebula Award for best Novelette. If you have problems with listening to books, you can read Men Are Trouble on line via Asimov's Science Fiction. Men Are Trouble is great to listen to while putting together bookshelves you bought the day after your spouse was nearly crushed when a stack of books fell on her. (Later, she came steamrolling down the hallway declaring, "Tomorrow, we are buying bookshelves!")

I promise, next update will have some scripts.

March 19, 2006 - Thanks to BE over at Movie-Page for the heads up on this undated, unspecified, though very surely an early, early draft of the much hyped V for Vendetta. That script you will find on the Movie Scripts page.

Also, American SyCo has his review of V For Vendetta.

And, you can chat up the movie on the Discussion Board.

March 16, 2006 - Last week I forgot to announce that we had put up twenty four scripts. So that you don't miss out, Check them out. We also have an additional eighteen scripts up on the Unproduced Scripts page. Also, I'm about a week behind in getting scripts up, so if you have submitted, be patient. Your script will be up soon.

March 14, 2006 - On the Movie Reviews page, our own American SyCo has his review of V For Vendetta.

On the Movie Scripts page we can read this early draft of Close Encounters of the Third Kind, thanks to Sci Fi Scripts and Vern.

March 13, 2006 - A little slow on the updates. Not in the mood for updates. Strep got me down. Not so much that I don't have the time to congratulate the recent 2006 Bloggies winners. SimplyScripts sponsered the prize for Best Podcast of a Weblog. The winner is: The Movie Blog. Since John lives in Canada and I live in the US, there is, apparently, an issue with buying an iTunes certificate in the US for a Canadian iTunes user, so I sent via paypal the moral equivalent of his prize. What is really, really freaky is that I listen to The Movie Blog and didn't notice that it was one of the blogs nominated. Weird.

March 7, 2006 - Thanks to Vern and DailyScript we can read this draft of The Wedding Crashers. You may have heard about it. The Movie Script page would be the place to go to read it and many, many others.

I haven't had a chance to update the lastest Unproduced Scripts. I'm working to get them up tomorrow. The reason you have no new unproduced scripts to read is because of James Patrick Kelly. No, no, no. It's not what you think. (Not that there is anything wrong with that...). James Patrick Kelly is a two time Hugo Award winning writer . I've been listening to Burn, by James Patrick Kelly, read by James Patrick Kelly on my iPod the last couple of days.

March 5, 2006 - Oscar night. SimplyScripts congratulates Larry McMurtry and Diana Ossana for Brokeback Mountain for Best Adapted Screenplay and Paul Haggis and Robert Moresco for Crash for Best Original screenplay. The best we can do is partial script of Crash or a closed captioned transcript. These would be thanks to Due South and Awesome Film. As for Simon and Schuster, they would prefer that you buy the script for Brokeback Mountain.

March 4, 2006 - Hi ho! Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is coming on DVD on Tuesday. Pre-order it now!

Thanks to Daily Script and JBM you can read this 2003 draft of The Jacket on the Movie Script page.

Another blog I dig: DriveTime. This is a video blog which will be of particular interest to folks who live in the Boston area. But even if you don't live in the Boston area you might find it of interest.

March 2, 2006 - Later that night.

On the Movie Scripts page, you can read the first draft of Brad Mirman's crime, comedy Crime Spree thanks to some obscure script site you may or may not have heard of...

March 2, 2006 - With James Cameron's announcement that his next film would be "a retooled version of AVATAR" a lot of folks have been asking about the famous Avatar scriptment and where it can be found. At one time there were about twenty or so sites hosting the scriptment and one by one they have been removed. The last hope is to Google a few of the last known locations and see if there is a copy still within Google Cache. I've provided one Example that as of this writing still works. That will, I'm sure, change. As always, any requests for scripts to be e-mailed to individuals will be either ignored or referred back to this information. Note: a reminder that the only scripts hosted by simplyscripts.com are hosted with the expressed permission of the screenwriter and can and will be removed at anytime upon their request.

Thanks to The Weekly Script we can read this shooting draft of Graham Yost's action/thriller Hard Rain. That would be found on the Movie Script page.

March 1, 2006 - "serendipity" is the word of the day. A few days ago my wife (the 98 pound Mandarin-English dictionary) came home with a new DVD player. This DVD player plays not only the DVDs bought here in the good 'ole US of A, but also the HUGE stack of DVDs that my Mother and Brother-in-law send up that heretofor have gone unviewed because the old DVD player (which now is resting quietly at the bottom of the trashcan) refused to play them. We watched In the Mood for Love. Before I watched it I wanted to get some idea of what I was in for and ran across Asian Film Reviews which interestingly enough had a review for In the Mood for Love. Now, flash forward a bit and what happens? I get an email from Asian Film Reviews saying, "Hey! Let us exchange links". I can not break the Karma, so Asian Film Reviews is my new friend. Hey! Asian Film Reviews, I need a review of 2046, 'cuz that is next on the viewing list. What am I in for? Help.

Blogs I dig: Gone to Plaid Whimsical and 90 degrees from center. I need that sometimes. BoingBoing - a directory of wonderful things. They introduced me to Escape Pod which, along with my MP3 player makes me enjoy going to and from work. I also dig Drew's Blog-O-Rama even tho Drew and I are mortal enemies forever battling to be the best and most liked dorky Movie Scripts web site in the universe. You'd think after eight years of being number two I'd give up. No. Soon my ninja monkey bloggers will strike and I will the best dorky movie scripts website in the universe, only not quite as funny.
