1. The holidays are upon us and after discussion among the moderators, it has been unanimously decided that we will be closing the Board on the following dates to give us the chance to enjoy the holidays with our families and so that the volunteer moderators will not have to cover for me while I am on vacation. The Board will be open to read and those who have those privileges can still send private messages and post to Profiles.

Question on "A Good Marriage" screenplay

Discussion in 'A Good Marriage' started by Rrty, Aug 29, 2014.

    I was wondering if Ms. Mod, or anyone else who has read the screenplay for "A Good Marriage," if King has retained his style of screenplay construction.

    I purchased years ago copies of "Creepshow" and "Sleepwalkers" from a screenplay supplier (I hope King earned royalties from this and it wasn't just the film studio that made the money) and I've read parts of "Silver Bullet" and "Storm of the Century" and I was wondering if King still writes as if the script is not just a blueprint but something to be read as well.

    Hobbyist -- or, real, for that matter -- screenwriters know this is absolutely not done. Screenplays are supposed to be quick, with short descriptions and a lot of white space.

    King obviously breaks this rule, and it can be a joy to read. So, I was simply curious if he still writes scripts like that. Would love to see how he handled the teleplay for "Under the Dome" that he composed.

    He no longer writes that way. Currently he's working on the screenplay of Remembrance of Things Past. Don't be surprised if it takes him some time.

    I haven't read the screenplay for this one but a couple of the more recent ones still had more than the bare essentials. I'm thinking in particular of Ghost Brothers of Darkland County--not technically a screenplay but same idea.
