DAVID FINCHER’S MANK SCREENPLAY LEAK

DAVID FINCHER’S MANK SCREENPLAY LEAK

HOLLYWOOD – The screenplay for David Fincher’s Mank leaked on the internet yesterday.

Yesterday’s leak of David Fincher’s Mank screenplay sent shockwaves through the world. Everyone was like: ‘What the fuck is this?’ but only the Studio Exec has the cojones to actually publish any of it.

Here’s the opening:

EXT: ORSON WELLES’ BUNGALOW. LA. NIGHT

We go through the the gate then the window. Ominous music. 

INT: ORSON WELLES? BUNGALOW. LA. NIGHT

A man lies on the bed. It is Orson Welles. He is dying. CLOSE UP: Lips.

WELLES

(Whispering)

Se7en…. se7en. 

He knocks a snow globe to the floor and expires. CGI tracking shot into the snow globe. Title sequence. Music: DAFT PUNK.

CUT TO:

IN. SCREENING ROOM. DAY. 

Mank and Orson Welles are arguing. 

WELLES

I’ve read your screenplay Mank and I have to say it’s brilliant. 

MANK

Thank you.

WELLES

The serial killer who bases his murders on the seven deadly sins and the whole thing takes place in a week. Amazing work. 

MANK

That’s great Orson. When do we begin to shoot?

WELLES

We don’t.

MANK

We don’t? Why not?

WELLES

Because it is too good. How dare I make such a genre defining film? Me a mere a beginner. Someday a director will come along, a director who likes inserts and dour lighting and he will make this amazing film. 

MANK

Okay then, but Fight Club…

WELLES

Ditto on Fight Club I’m afraid. And The Game. 

MANK

There’s this F. Scott Fitzgerald story I’ve been to look at.

WELLES

No I need something that will fit my talents. Great, prodigious indeed, but not as great as  the director who will come and who knows? might even make a film of this our conversation.
