Tim Minear’s Drive tv scripts - post author Don

Tim Minear's DriveThanks to Jen for the heads up on these from who has posted the final shooting scripts for the first four episodes of DRIVE! Beware, though: Due to some changes in the editing suite, some scenes that were written for Episodes 103 and 104 were shifted to later episodes. So there are BIG plot spoilers ahead. Check them out on the TV scripts page.

Remember, you have a couple of days and a few hours change to get your short, 15 page or less comedy script (in proper screenwriting format) on the theme of ?Telling your spouse that you lost your job? in for the One Week Exercise. – Don

M Night Shyamalan’s The Happening - post author Don

Breaking news from N who writes, Hey… I was on IMDB and just noticed that M Night Shyamalan’s new movie The Happening for 2008 is listed. I was psyched being a big fan and this was the first I heard of it. Anyways I went to the [IMDB] message board to see what the film was about and to my surprise someone in there has been emailing the script and one post I found had a link to download the script from megaupload. …I thought I’d point out the link to you so people can download the script if they want to check it out while its on megaupload. I believe it’s a 6th draft and MNS has already done extensive rewrites, but I heard the same thing about The Village and the movie ended up almost exactly the same as the leaked script for that film. Anyways, keep up the great work… don’t know what I’d do without your site!

Thanks N!
