The Big Ass Update!
I have read the script! I head to get that out there. No I can't trade it or give you a copy. If you want the script that badly I suggest doing a bit of doing around on some of the major movie forums. It isn't too hard to find. I read a draft dated back to 2002, credited to Eric Roth with a footnote crediting previous writer Robin Swicord. Without giving too much away I loved the script but I do think it needs some major revisions. The same draft was reviewed by movie site Collidier, but I think its safe to say the script used in the actual movie will be updated and trimmed down. You only have to glance at the IMDB credits to realise the scripts gone through major rewrites. I do think the script shares a lot in common with Forrest Gump, no doubt through the films sharing the same screeen writer. I think this is a good thing, Forrest Gump is a favourite of mine and I'm sure the future drafts of the BB script will Forrest Gump's level of social truth and humanity. My final words on the scripts - if a few minor changes are made to the films structures and a few scenes are trimmed out this is going to be a major film, one that finally lands the audience deserves. Also Pitt and Blanchett are a lock for Academy Award nominations and quite possibly wins.
