‘Slumdog’ Shooting Script

As we mentioned back in November, when buzz first began circulating about Slumdog Millionaire (which just swept the Golden Globes), the movie is very loosely based on the book Q&A by Vikas Swarup. Nonetheless, libraries that own the book (originally published in 2005 and re-released under the Slumdog Millionaire title in November) are showing reserves.

Today, Shelf Awareness points out that the shooting script is available from Newmarket Press, featuring an introduction by the director.

Upcoming is one for the Dreamwork’s highly anticipated movie (the first trailer was “leaked” back in August), Monsers vs. Aliens, releasing March 27th. As USA Today reported, last year, the movie will be “the first computer-animated feature to be shot in 3-D” (as opposed to converting the film post production).

An “Illustrated Companion” is coming for Angels & Demons, which should be interesting for it’s “in-progress shots of the re-creation of the Sistine Chapel and its artifacts.”
