Hot Tub Time Machine script and others - post author Don

Thanks to The Script Collector, you can read a very, very, very early draft of Hot Tub Time Machine. This early draft is screamingly different from the final product. A good read, nonetheless.

Thanks to Wes for the heads up that The Warriors Movie Site is back from the dead and you can again read Walter Hill’s June 20, 1978 draft of the script Warriors.

The Screenplay Database has a three-fer for you. You can read She’s Out of My League, While She Was Out and Valentine’s Day (and I’m sure a ton of other scripts.

Thank you Karl for pointing out that Matthew Dressel’s The Sandwich Days should now be featured in the Movie Scripts section of the site. It is now there to read and enjoy.

In other news, half of the writing team of Robotard8000 has, true to his word, taken down his latest script Die Screaming. If anyone has a script review, please let me know, I’d like to post a link or host the review. I’d write my own script review, but I’m puttnig the finishing touches on my masterpiece, Cease to live whilst uttering a long, loud piercing cry.

Find these scripts (sans Die Screaming) over on the Movie Scripts page. – Don

Tim Talbott’s (Robotard8000) Die Screaming script up for one day - post author Don

Tim Talbott has posted his latest script online.

Tim Talbott, along with Malcolm Spellman, wrote (as The Robotard 8000) Balls Out which made the 2009 Black List.

Tim has posted on his site The Robotard 8000 his latest script, Die Screaming (pdf format).

Tim writes,

“I recently wrote this thing.
But no one cares.
So I’m gonna post it here for sh*ts and giggles.
For one day.
One day only.”

Man, what a cry for help.

Yes, I know I’m only giving in to his desperate cry for attention. But I thought, “what if I read the next morning that he’s found sitting in his closet, naked from the waist down with his mouse cord wrapped around his neck.”

Like you, I’d think, “I could have done something to prevent that.” Or, “Man, he really should have researched the finer points of auto-erotic asphyxiation…”

Now that I have done everything humanly possible in my power to prevent the aforementioned from happening, I’m going finish reading Die Screaming. – Don

BlueCat Screenplay Competition reminder - post author Don

Thanks to Kathryn, my new best friend*, for the heads up on the fast approaching deadline for the 2010 BlueCat Screenplay Competition.

Reminder that the late deadline for the 2010 BlueCat Screenplay Competition, where every screenplay receives written script analysis, is coming up on April 1st (no joke!).

This year, BlueCat has created two new awards for international screenwriters, expanded early analysis deadlines and for fun, decided to have a best title contest to further support and find the new writer.


Winner receives $10,000

Four Finalists receive $1,500 each.

NEW! The best screenplay outside the USA, Canada and the UK will be awarded the Joplin Award and receive $2500.


Late: April 1 ($60 entry fee)

Any screenplay submitted early and having received our early analysis can be resubmitted by April 1, 2010 for the reduced fee of $35.


On another note:

*True Story: I’m taking a Human Factors usability course. At the beginning of class, each student was asked to introduce themselves and tell the class one interesting or unusual thing about themselves. I mentioned that I run a “fairly popular” screenwriting resource site. Kathryn, who sits two rows behind me asked, “Is it, by any chance, ‘SimplyScripts’?”

Totally made my day. – Don
