Smokin’ Aces review - post author Don

Smokin' Aces movie reviewI mentioned in early January that an early draft of Smokin’ Aces by Joe Carnahan was available on the ‘net. Guy Jackson, one of the discussion board regulars has a great review of the movie that came out yesterday. The beauty of the review, in my mind, is that it was the reading of the script that prompted Guy to go out and see the movie.

Unproduced Scripts - post author Don

I am still horribly behind in getting unproduced scripts up, but I have, for your reading pleasure, everything submitted up to the 20th of this month up on the unproduced scripts page.

There is a new Star Trek virtual series on the ‘net. Do give a look to Knight’s Haven. They are represented on this week’s unproduced scripts page. Also, BlackScripts has a script there called The President’s Baby. J.P. Lawless has two quite readable science fiction scripts, one of which is a great take on Superman. Those are just a few of the twenty scripts up on the unproduced scripts page. – Don

This month’s One Week Challenge, wherein members of the site have a week to write a 15 page or less script on a particular genre and theme, garnered thirteen submissions despite the fact that shortly after it was announced, but before I could advertise it, I got sucked deep into my day job. This month’s genre was Science Fiction. The theme was Popcorn. To see what was turned out, check out the January 2007 One Week Challenge page.

On the Movie Scripts page, thanks to The Weekly Script we have a shooting draft of Deep Cover.

Godfather III and Big screenplays - post author Don

Thanks to “No credit for these” and Awesome Film we have the July 2, 1987 revised draft of Big by Gary Ross & Anne Spielberg (yes, sister of Stephen ). “NCFT” writes, Since Big is coming out in a special edition dvd [on March 27th] that whole issue of the “alternate ending” has come back. Hopefully if this gets posted that rumor will be put to rest once and for all.

Back in the late 70’s Paramount tried to put together a Godfather Part III without Coppola and Puzo on the screenplay. Read Dean Rieser’s take on it. Needless to say, it was never produced.

Mosey on down to the Movie Scripts page to check them out. – Don

The Dark Year screenplay - post author Don

Thanks to Pierre who writes, …herewith [is] “The Dark Year” an adaptation of a short novel by Ismail Kadar?, the well known Franco-Albanian writer who won the Booker Prize last year. This screenplay was written originally in English and the film is actually being shot in Albania. I will be honored to have you show it on Simplyscripts since your site has been of great help to me professionally.

The Dark Year takes place in 1914 Albania, just prior to the outbreak of World War I. Albania, long under the rule of the Ottoman Empire, is now a free, though chaotic country. Five villagers set off to war to defend their country. They can’t find the war but the hero finds a woman he saves from crucifixion.

L’Ann?e Noire (The Dark Year) (en fran?ais) and The Dark Year (L’Ann?e Noire) (en anglais) by Fatmir Ko?i & Pierre Gautard (based on the novel Viti i mbrapsht? by Ismail Kadar?)

This, as well as other works in other languages, can be found on the Non English scripts page. – Don

Update: I’ve fixed the broken links to the scripts.

And, to clarify.
To read the script in French, use this link: L’Ann?e Noire (The Dark Year) (en fran?ais)

To read the script in English, use this link: The Dark Year (L’Ann?e Noire ) (en anglais)
