Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

So begins William Broyles, Jr.'s fascinating introduction, written exclusively for this book, about the process and challenges inherent in writing a screenplay that was not, by design, going to have a lot of dialogue in it, and about his collaboration with two extraordinarily gifted artists, actor Tom Hanks and director Robert Zemeckis.

Broyles's introduction shows how a movie and its story evolve, shift, and shape while the creators grapple with all manner of internal and external choices: from developing what was Tom Hanks's idea into a story, and building a narrative structure and thematic threads into a screenplay, to researching the details of the specific—and ironic—situation of a FedEx executive stranded on a desert island.

Also included in this unique Newmarket Shooting Script® edition is the complete shooting script, a preface to the script by Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Robert Zemeckis (Forrest Gump, Contact), movie stills, and complete cast and crew credits.

Synopsis:

Oscar "RM" -winner Tom Hanks stars as a FedEx inspector who survives a plane crash that leaves him stranded, alone, on a remote desert island for four years. A contemporary drama, Cast Away is about a man who is isolated and forced to transform himself in order to survive both physically and emotionally, and his adjustment when he finally does return to civilization and to his fiancee, played by Oscar "RM" -winner Helen Hunt.<P>The Newmarket book includes the complete shooting script, an introduction by William Broyles who spent six years in collaboration with Hanks on Cast Away, stills, and the complete credits.
