Script: Nowhere Boy

Everyone says DON’T write a Beattles movie. It’s been done. They’re almost impossible to get made. But movies about bands, fictional or real, can do very well. So use this Nowhere Boy script by Matt Greenhalgh for inspiration, but for god’s sake, pick a different band.

Quote of the Day: Herbert Mankiewicz

In a novel a hero can lay ten girls and marry a virgin for a finish. In a movie this is not allowed. The hero, as well as the heroine, has to be a virgin. The villain can lay anybody he wants, have as much fun as he wants cheating and stealing, getting rich and whipping the servants. But you have to shoot him in the end.
