Rumor: Partial script for Driver film adaptation leaked
May 24, 2009
"DRIVER, 25, a test driver for Audi Germany in his mid-twenties — a little Beckham, a little McQueen — with munchy hair and intense blue eyes that show a focus that’s laser-like."
These precious words constitute the first sentence of the Roger Avary-crafted screenplay for the (currently on-hold) film adaptation of the Driver series. The first five pages of the "HIGHLY CONFIDENTIAL" script (written circa fall 2006) were recently leaked to superannuation, an anonymous (but extremely reliable) gaming news source. We have no idea who did the leaking, nor are we entirely certain of the script’s veracity. Still — a blogger can dream. If you have the literate faculties to do so, please take the time to lose yourself in this all too brief masterpiece.
Update: The mastermind behind superannuation contacted us, informing us that he (or she?) was the one who actually discovered the script. Good find, sir! (Or madam!)
