Introducing Film Scripts Online
“Well, I ain’t a lawyer, but it sounds like a good contract to me.”
Recognize that line? It’s the first words uttered in the classic movie, 42nd Street, written by Rian James and James Seymour.
How about - “I don’t want to be a product of my environment. I want my environment to be a product…of me.”
That line is the opening voiceover of The Departed, written by Sui Fai Mak, William Monahan, and Felix Chong.
Before a movie can ever start shooting with the glamorous cast, a writer has to sit down at the typewriter. Reading a movie script can give you insight into characters, a better understanding of the director’s vision (especially with a shooting script), and give you a chance to play director or actor. Anyone with an interest in scriptwriting or studying film will be pleased to see our latest always-available collection, Film Scripts Online.
With more than a thousand scripts, there’s something for every script curious member – from the classics like Anne of Green Gables to modern films like American History X. From comedies, Bad Boys, to dramas, The Age of Innocence, to romance, Some Like it Hot, to scifi/fantasy, Back to the Future.
With no checkout requirement, these scripts are always available, no waiting. Enjoy browsing the collection and making a list of favorites. Scripts can be cited, emailed, shared, saved, printed, and embedded.
