The myth of screenwriting credits

Simon Brew Apr 3, 2017

Why the writers credited on a movie are rarely the only ones who put the screenplay together....

The Wizard Of Oz, since its initial release in 1939, has richly deserved its long-cemented status as an all-time classic. A regular resident in the IMDb top 250 films of all time, and a part of many people’s DVD collection, it’s a film that I’d wager more and more people fall in love with each year. Long may that continue.

Lots of brilliant people were involved in bringing The Wizard Of Oz to the big screen. Some terrific writers, too, who came up with a quotable and cherished script. The film’s screenplay is credited to Noel Langley, »

Following director Richard Kelly's announcement that he's ready to make a new sequel to Donnie Darko, star Jake Gyllenhaal weighs in...

He was bound to get asked the question eventually, and now we have an answer.

Yes, Jake Gyllenhaal has finally addressed the very real possibility of making a sequel to the 2001 cult classic Donnie Darko, which helped his star rise rapidly to the A-list.

Earlier in the year, the time-traveling head-scratcher of a film's director Richard Kelly had been touring a brand new 4K restoration of Darko when he made some rather surprising comments about revisiting the mind-bending universe, causing a lot of fans to respond with some extremely vocal mixed reactions.

"I think there’s something much bigger and more ambitious to do in that universe," Kelly told HMV at the time. "It’s »

Prime Suspect 1973's penultimate episode sets the stage for what promises to be a grimly compelling finale...

With Terry O’Duncie in custody for the murders of Julie Ann Collins and Eddie Phillips, Di Bradfield switches his attention to the incriminating tape recordings made by local radio enthusiast Ashley Brennan. He listens to them at Tennison’s prompting, and instantly recognises the voice of one of the speakers as Cliff Bentley. As soon as it dawns on Bradfield that something shady is going on with the Bentley clan, his interest in the Collins case wanes, to the alarm of Sergeant Harris, who angrily warns him not to get sidetracked by his desire for revenge. This follows a visit from Dcs Metcalf (Colin Mace), who, alerted by Harris, comes to urge Bradfield to »

Noah Hawley might have superpowers. After successfully shepherding the adaptation of a beloved film by perhaps the most accomplished and eclectic team of filmmakers from the past thirty years, he decided to tackle a C-list X-Men property. Just like Fargo, the comic character Legion comes with its own baggage and a fiercely devoted fan base that would be ready to go berserk like Wolverine if not handled with care. Factor in a superhero entertainment landscape that’s nearly been milked dry of original takes, and the prospect of creating a new X-Men adjacent TV series seems daunting. Yet Hawley was able to create a show that is spellbinding, mind-bending, and visually inventive, using the fragile mental state »

Crowdfund This: Blood Shed, Evil & Laughs & Buildings & Blood

14 March 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | Screen Anarchy | See recent Screen Anarchy news »

We at ScreenAnarchy, and I expect many of our readers, are big fans of James Moran, screenwriter of Severance, Cockneys vs Zombies, Tower Block, and episodes of Doctor Who and Torchwood. He's also directed some fantastic shorts, such as Crazy for You and Ghosting. Now, he is joining forces with his equally talented partner Cat Davies (writer/director of shorts Keen-Wah and Connie), and they are bringing us a new horror-comedy, Blood Shed! Jack loves a bargain. And he loves sheds. When he buys suspiciously cheap second-hand parts online to build his very own dream shed, he and long-suffering wife Helen find they’ve got more than they bargained for: a killer shed with an appetite for blood. As the body count rises, and the shed’s ferocious...
