how to write a screenplay 2

If you want to know how to write a screenplay, one way is to write an adaptation.  That is, you want to a movie script, but don’t want to write your own, original characters, or don’t want to write your own original plot.  Your resources include going online, the library, the bookstore--search for novels or biographies that you think you can turn into a screenplay.  Of course, you have to get permission from the author(s) before turning their original work into your own screenwriting credit. 

Also, keep in mind that many, Hollywood studios get their ideas by buying the rights to many, best selling books, so they probably already have a screenwriter or a team of screenwriters working on turning those best selling books into films.  For example, look at Lord of the Rings.  This already has a proven “reading audience” so there’s an automatic “movie-viewing” audience.

So maybe it’s better to find books you love, that are not so popular, but can be made into great movie scripts.  Again, secure permission from the author(s) and keep proof of this.

There’s an interview in which an executive from a production company loved a screenplay that would take her back to a place that she loves and where she had just spent her vacation.  So she liked the screenplay because one of its many positives was the location.  She finds out that the screenwriter did not get permission from the author.  She calls this screenwriter an “amateur.”
