How to get your novel turned into a movie

The Growing Demands of Casting Directors | The Independent

SCREENPLAYS SUCCESS STORIES

Sylvester Stallone was living in utter poverty when he saw an unknown boxer last nearly 15 rounds with Muhammad Ali. The idea for Rocky was born. Stallone wrote the script in just three days and the rest, as they say, is Hollywood history as the movie became one of the most successful of all time and made Stallone an international superstar.

Kevin Williamson and a friend were reminiscing one night about popular 1980s horror movies. The conversation spawned the idea for what would become the opening scene in Scream with a stalker quizzing his victims on horror movies of the past. Williamson wrote Scream in just four days.  The script created a hot bidding war and made Williamson one of the highest-paid screenwriters in Hollywood. 

And then there’s Joe Eszterhas. He came up with the idea of a beautiful crime novelist becoming the suspect in the cas…

He is, he said, “retiring, in a way, from my past.” Instead, the Times reported, Lucas plans to devote the rest of his life to making small personal films for art-house audiences like the ones he was experimenting with when he was a student at USC. However, the Times observed, “Before he takes his digital camera with him into obscurity … he wants to prove that with Red Tails, he can still make the kind of movie everyone in the world will want to see.” He has a lot riding on that movie, which opens on Friday — $54 million of his own money, he says, which he put up after executives at every major s…

Still busy pitching my screenplays...More exhausting than writing believe me! Some good contacts last weeks.
