Tonight He Comes (Hancock) script - post author Don

Thanks to BD for the heads up on this one. Jeffrey Wells over at Hollywood elsewhere has an excellent take on Hancock and the potential role that Akiva “I poop blockbusters” Goldsman had on the final movie. One HE readers shot over an early, early draft of Hancock noting, “It’s always frustrating to read movie reviews in which the writing is slammed. Screenwriters are easy targets, but they’re often innocent bystanders in the development process. If you want to know what Hancock looked like before all the cooks in the kitchen got their grubby paws on it, here’s an earlier draft [PDF] that shows the writer’s true vision… “

Script Girl sales report for July 11th - post author Don

Script Girl’s weekly script sales report for the week ending July 11, 2008.

Two groups of talking animals living together, a high school student in a murder plot orchestrated by his substitute teacher, male dancing cheerleaders, a modern day animal doctor hired to overlook mythological creatures and Inglorious Bastards script is floating around.

Cruel - post author Don

Congrats to Duane and Conflic Scripts on the filming of Cruel. Cruel is presented by Conflic Scripts, produced by Smokin Gnome Productions & Knight Entertainment and is directed by Duane P. Craig.

Read Cruel (pdf format) – Horror – An axe wielding “Beast” of a man abducts a teen girl stricken mute since seeing the wrongful death of her friend. One by one, each of seven different people are killed in front of the teen girl as a means of shock therapy to cure her traumatic muteness. The seven victims are each responsible for the cover-up of the Political Official who should have gone to prison for the wrongful death.

Cruel is a silent-horror-film that is just as much a cat-and-mouse thriller. The film is purposely done silent and for good reason per the intelligence of the concept. The film will end with a twist that should solidify this filmmaker’s vision and firm place into the industry. The entirety of the film will present style over substance. The filmmaker firmly believes that blood and gore scares no one, but that one can present horrors to any audience in the perfect suspensful style such that it can be disturbing and never forgotten – much as Alfred Hitchcock had done so many years before.

Scripts from the Golden Age of Radio - post author Don

Big thanks to the Mysterious “M” for the heads up on a ton (figuratively speaking) of scripts from the Golden Age of Radio. Head over to the Old Time Radio page and check out scripts and transcripts from classics such as, Superman vs. Kryptonite, Stories of Suspense, Frankenstein and Gunsmoke.

You must do a deep dive on these excellent OTR (Old Time Radio) sites like Generic Radio, Quietly Yours, Those Were The Days and Kingrr’s Home Page. A recent two day power outage left the fat kid trying to wire all the D-Cell batteries in the house together to power the television. Some MP3’s of OTR stories like Superman and The Green Hornet and Suspense were a life saver as the family gathered in the living room by the light of candles and listened to these classics. – Don
