About two months ago, an artificial intelligence-generated Batman screenplay hit the scene on Twitter, posted by Keaton Patti. I forced a bot to watch over 1,000 hours of Batman movies and then asked it to write a Batman movie of its own. Here is the first page. pic.twitter.com/xrgvgAyv1L — Keaton Patti (@KeatonPatti) August 13, 2019 […]
Breaking news from the ever-beloved Twitter: Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn will be publishing the script for recent Marvel hit Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. This news came about when a Twitter user contacted Gunn over the service to ask if Marvel Studios will continue to publish screenplays for their films, like they did for Captain America: The […]
Entertainment Weekly ran an interview with Chuck Palhniuk about the upcoming collection of his and Cameron Stewart‘s comic book Fight Club 2 and unveiling this trailer for said title. Palahniuk also revealed how writing this comic helped him with the screenplay for the movie version of his novel Lullaby, which is currently seeking funding on […]
So Bleeding Cool ran a story on Friday, that Fox had been speaking to prominent movie directors and screenwriters, asking them if they’d be willing to take over the currently-in-pre-production Fantastic Four for a new shoot in six months. Which would mean new script, new director and recasting. Our sources were impeccable. By which we mean those […]
I’ve learnt from a rather well-connected source that, as the title says, Fox is looking to dump Fantastic Four director Josh Trank and the script by Simon Kinberg and are actively looking for replacements. Six months before they are due to shoot, for 2015 release. Oh, yes, and there are now casting issues from the […]

Save it now, while you can, and read it after you've seen the film.

If you want the whole film spoiled for you, here's your chance. DON'T DO IT, etc.
Doctor Who comics writer Tony Lee and Sam Hart have been in London today to record a podcast for Orbital Comics, which will go up on their website this weekend, most likely. But I’ve managed to get a newsworthy snippet ahead of time. “I’ve written a screenplay based on a story I came up with […]
Thinking caps on, people. And photoshopping gloves.
Michel Hazanavicius‘ screenplay for The Artist has been published online by The Weinsteins as part of their For Your Consideration campaign. What makes this script particularly interesting to read is that it lays down the blueprint for a silent film in nothing but action and the odd title card (well… more or less). Silent movie […]
The debut picture of Diablo Cody as writer-director, is coming on nicely in its preproduction. It was previously to be called Lamb of God, though it now lacks an official title – likely to prevent offense amongst the more fundamental Christians. The screenplay itself isn’t anti-Christ at all, though. Cody certainly takes some shots at […]
I’m never one to be precious about remakes or adaptations, and if I find out that a new version on an old story is striking out in a bold direction, I’m only encouraged. It’s exciting for me, then, to see that Max Landis‘ new Frankenstein screenplay seems to be charting new territory for the big […]
I have great respect and admiration for a well-written screenplay, and I’ve read a good number of them in my time – and you can add to that a whole heap of mediocre ones and several landfill sites worth of dreadful ones. I’ve been fascinated by how true, or not, a film might be to […]
This is a look at a draft of a screenplay, not the film itself. Many things can and often do change between this stage and the final film. Not least, it actually gets shot. Spoilers that might impede your enjoyment of the movie will be avoided but if you want to remain a Paul virgin, […]
