Gods and Monsters script and Panther script - post author Don

Thanks to Vern for the heads up on this fantastic script – Gods and Monsters, the 1998 Oscar Winner for Screenplay Based on Material Previously Produced or Published. Note: the file is a whopping 21 mb, but does contain Ian McKellen’s handwritten notes. Fascinating reading brought to you by the tenth anniversary site Gods and

Thanks to Dennis and the Weekly Script you can read a draft of Panther, a semi-historical account of the creation of the Black Panther Party written by Melvin Van Peebles.

update from Sandy:

Bill Condon is a master technician. I?ve recommended Gods and Monsters to many people as a ?how to? guide for just about every technical element you could ever need to use.

In Gods there are flashbacks, hallucinations, dream sequences, scenes from old movies that are flashbacks and scenes from old movies on television that are all intertwined with each other and the present day narrative. It?s all clear and beautifully structured.

There?s a leaner version of Gods and Monsters on the internet [available here from Daily Script] which is easier to read than the one on the anniversary site but the site listed above has the oneline schedule which offers a glimpse into how scripts are broken down and shot.
