Mary Queen of Scots and On The Basis of Sex – For Your Consideration - post author Don

Thanks Barksid for the heads up on two more from Focus Features:

Mary Queen of Scots – undated, unspecified draft script by Beau Willimon – hosted by: Focus Features – in pdf format

Mary Queen of Scots explores the turbulent life of the charismatic Mary Stuart. Queen of France at 16 and widowed at 18, Mary defies pressure to remarry. Instead, she returns to her native Scotland to reclaim her rightful throne. But Scotland and England fall under the rule of the compelling Elizabeth I. Each young Queen beholds her “sister” in fear and fascination. Rivals in power and in love, and female regents in a masculine world, the two must decide how to play the game of marriage versus independence. Determined to rule as much more than a figurehead, Mary asserts her claim to the English throne, threatening Elizabeth’s sovereignty. Betrayal, rebellion, and conspiracies within each court imperil both thrones – and change the course of history.

On The Basis of Sex – undated, unspecified draft script by Daniel Stiepleman – hosted by: Focus Features – in pdf format

The story of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, her struggles for equal rights and what she had to overcome in order to become a U.S. Supreme Court Justice.

Beautiful Boy screenplay. And interesting observation - post author Don

Interesting development on writing credits for the screenplay Beautiful Boy posted by Amazone I’ve just noticed noticed.

This version of Beautiful Boy posted on the 29th has it credited as: Screenplay by Luke Davies & Felix van Groeningen, however this more recent version posted three days later has Screenplay by Luke Davies and Felix van Groeningen (emphasis added).

In the case of the WGA screenwriting credit system, an ampersand, “&” means that two writers wrote as a team. WGA considers them to be one person. However, “and” means that two writers worked on the script at different times.
