John August's screenplays

The screenwriter John August (Go, Big Fish) selflessly runs a terrific site sharing his knowledge and experiences in the movie business.

In this post he writes about how he adapted Thomas Rockwell’s How to Eat Fried Worms years ago only to watch the project fall apart, and how he feels about the current version--with which he had nothing to do--now on the big screen.

And here John makes available several versions of some of his scripts. ("The best way to learn screenwriting is read a bunch of scripts, so these are intended for educational purposes only.")
