Books To Films ~ Scripts & ScreenWriting

Books to Film is a very real dream of many authors.  Finding those who know the industry, following them and learning from them, adopting them as mentors, is the first step to bringing your dream to reality.  For me, this reality also consists of purchasing the software the big name scriptwriters and filmmakers use and teaching myself to bring my novels to scripts.  Multi-generational films/movies and their scripts can be found, and when you do find them, watch and read them through, because those are the keys to discovering why they have been popular and have become classics and successful for generations.  Many of these links below will either offer insight to the industry, further details, or allow the free download of the scripts and films – you should never have to pay for them if they are in the Public Domain, yet many websites charge varying prices.

Saving Private Ryan by Jacqueline Kehl

Saving Private RyanSaving Private Ryan by Jacqueline Kehl
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Touching, emotional, and dedicated to home, country, family, and peace – war is inevitable – things must get worse before things can get better. For one family the loss is far too great a burden. They must find the young soldier in the heart of battle, and send him home – three of his brothers have fallen, and his parents need him home. Tom Hanks best film, his heart was visible upon his sleeve as he portrayed the seriousness of the matter – amen. May God keep His soldiers forever in peace.

Red Dragon by Thomas Harris

Red Dragon (Hannibal Lecter, #1)Red Dragon by Thomas Harris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Having to come out of early retirement (due to the PTSD he suffered in the capture of Hannibal Lecter) this FBI Agent has another creature to capture. The young agent must face Lecter, seek his assistance, in order to find “The Tooth Fairy”. There’s more than just his anxiety on the line though, as he approaches Lecter’s dungeonous prison. His family’s lives are at stake. If you have not read all of the Hannibal books, or seen all of the films, now is the time to do so. There’s more to Hannibal than what meets the eye in this book, and we all know that Anthony Hopkins’ best role, his tue creepiness, has been Lecter.

Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson

The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. HydeThe Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde by Robert Louis Stevenson
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Too many of the older books have been put to film before the next generation even realizes that it started out as a book! Jekyll and Hyde – Stevenson took his time with word crafting – thrilling, murderously bringing to life both sides of the Doctor’s character, the good in him and his evil – while writing each line with a deliberate cause. Some books must be read, prior to film viewing, and not to do so with this book, would be a crying shame. Sitting on the edge of your seat; you’re about to take a walk down the forbidden lane of science.
