Chaos and Timber Falls scripts - post author Don

Big thanks to Writer/Director Tony Giglio for these script donations.

We have the March 15, 2004 shooting script of Chaos (pdf format) which starred Jason Statham, Wesley Snipes and Ryan Phillippe.

Two cops, a rookie and a grizzled vet, pursue an accomplished bank robber..

Tony writes, “[The] Chaos [shooting script] is pretty close to the final product.”

We also have, the September 17, 2006 shooting script of Timber Falls (pdf format) by Daniel Kay (revised by Tony Giglio).

A weekend of camping in the mountains becomes an excursion into hell for a young couple, who become pawns in a grotesque plot hatched by deranged locals.

Of this, Tony writes, “TIMBER FALLS is too [pretty close to the final product] except the very last scene is completely different. We ran out of time in Romania to shoot the ending the way I wanted. The ending that made the film was shot in LA (and not very good). But now, if anyone cares, they can see what we were actually going for.”

There is a video of a Q&A from screamfest where Tony talks about Timber Falls.

Check out Tony’s IMDB creds and his website, The War Room.

You can find these and other movie scripts on the Movie Scripts page.
