Scenes Left to Write in This Script
This is a screenplay I've been writing forever (2 years? more?) that keeps getting pushed back by other assignments. Finish line in sight.
- •The car chase/crashThese are always the worst. They're not rewarding at all, because no one seeing the movie knows how much you struggled to convey the geography and urgency of the scene. But it has to be here, and be cool.
- •The ambulanceSuper short. Should be half a page at most.
- •The betrayalProbably the scene I'm most excited to write.
- •The goodbyeI have a hunch I'll end up writing dialogue that will make me rewrite earlier scenes. That's okay.
- •The morgueI hand-wrote this at 5am in Dublin, and I wonder if it's completely the wrong tone. Someone will tell me.
- •The mountain chaseRemember that Kirstie Alley/Tom Berenger/Sidney Poitier movie? This isn't that, but I love that movie.
- •Olivia at the cabinI honestly have no idea how this scene is going to work. At some point, she needs to get the other character to make a phone call, but that's it.
- •The drive to the mountainsMaybe I'm stalling on writing this because I feel like it would never survive in the cut. It's a character scene in the third act. We may be plot plot plot by that point.
- •The knife fightAgain, not enjoyable to write, because it's just a bunch of short sentences to convey something that should look cool on screen. Knives!
- •The ritualI think I may already have this hand-written somewhere. The best scenes are the ones you discover Earlier You already wrote. I think I was on a plane to Chicago when I wrote this.
