We’re less than two weeks away from the start of the Blacklist Read-a-thon. And the good news is that we're now starting to get movie scripts . The bad news is that we only have one, and it hasn’t been reviewed yet.
When we started this project last year, some of the first people to read the screenplays were movie theater owners who needed scripts for the summer. They would post the scripts on their bulletin boards, circulate them among their theater managers and see which ones got the most attention. This summer, they’re posting scripts online, but as a bonus, they’re also getting the advertising value of having the Blacklist script notes on their own site.
The first script I’ve downloaded is the Harley Davidson script by Steve M. Dohanos. It’s an action drama about a hero who’s been forced to retire from a life of crime. But when the wife of an old friend is kidnapped, he’s forced to resume his criminal life in order to save her.
1) The story is good, but when its characters are on screen, they feel like they’re in a minor movie rather than a major motion picture. That’s an issue that almost all screenwriters encounter when they write for the stage or the big screen, but it’s still worth considering.
Since it's a challenge to find the best of the best, Go Into The Story offers us a list of unproduced scripts that have not only been produced, but made into movies. The list's criteria is the script's first 10 pages.
The script downloads for each of the following scripts include the original script and a page of infomration that you can't find anywhere else. You also have the opportunity to rate the script on a scale of one to ten. The site has a variety of scripts to choose from. 827ec27edc
