Huge, huge thanks to Richie Soloman for the best news during the awards season. Check out more scripts on the Scripts Studios are posting for Award Consideration page.

Parasite – undated, unspecified draft fyc script by Bong Joon Ho & Han Jin Won – hosted by: Deadline – in pdf format

Jobless, penniless, and, above all, hopeless, the unmotivated patriarch, Ki-taek, and his equally unambitious family–his supportive wife, Chung-sook; his cynical twentysomething daughter, Ki-jung, and his college-age son, Ki-woo–occupy themselves by working for peanuts in their squalid basement-level apartment. Then, by sheer luck, a lucrative business proposition will pave the way for an insidiously subtle scheme, as Ki-woo summons up the courage to pose as an English tutor for the teenage daughter of the affluent Park family. Now, the stage seems set for an unceasing winner-take-all class war. How does one get rid of a parasite?
