Screenplay Download -

It’s been a few weeks now that every now and then, a link appears to download a script from one of the major movie out and about during the Awards Season. Couple of years ago, Fox started a bloody dance (soon followed by other Studio) to dissuade anyone to share scripts online. In few days, every site that was offering access to scripts got shut down or saw its library wildly cut down.

This year, may studios have decided to share the scripts of their promising babies, another way to generate buzz, especially for those who might have a shot at Best Screenplay (although some don’t qualify for a WGA nomination, which apparently can make their Oscar nomination arduous)

Below is the list of scripts in Alphabetical order, made available by many but regrouped under Brad Brevet’s article for Rope of Silicon.
