Warner Bros to launch film scripts as eBooks

1st May 2012

Film studio Warner Bros has revealed it will release the scripts from some of the most famous films of all time in eBook format, in addition to a number of digital extras.

The new releases are designed to give film fans unparalleled insight into how classic productions were created, with the initial batch of scripts set to include Ben Hur, Casablanca and North by Northwest.

In addition to the screenplay, the eBooks will contain production notes, storyboards and on-set photographs, explained Thomas Gewecke, president of Warner Bros Digital Distribution.

'People love movies because of the stories they tell. Now we can give fans rarely seen details of how these stories came together and take their enjoyment of films to a whole new level,' he added.

Some of the extras provide film fans with hitherto unknown information about the making of the films, with the Casablanca eBook including a telegram from producer Hal Wallis shedding light on his disagreement with studio mogul Jack Warner.

Meanwhile, the Ben Hur eBook features excerpts from Charlton Heston's performance and shooting journals from the set of the film and North by Northwest includes costume sketches and musical notes made by the composer Bernard Herrmann.
