Early script for Wes Anderson's 'Darjeeling Limited'

darjeeling limited script

Update: The script is no longer available.

Penned by Wes Anderson, Roman Coppola, and Jason Schwartzman – get your early draft (5/17/06), pre-Natalie Portman, pre-Bill Murrayed tiger Darjeeling Limited script here. Thanks to VendattaV at Oh No for the tip. For reference: Francis – Owen Wilson, Jack – Jason Schwartzman, Peter – Adrien Brody.

As mentioned earlier, I have serious reservations regarding how far Wes Anderson can take this twee-filmmaking before the rut is too worn to dig himself out, but to be honest, I just picked this up and haven’t read the damn thing yet. Let’s exchange notes later.

And from the written page to the nearly-finished product, AICN has a report from a self-admitted Wes Anderson fan who sat in on an early Darjeeling screening. “The main problem with the movie is that it really goes nowhere.” Their words, not mine.

Update: NataliePortman.com, who hosted the script online (and regretfully, I should have thanked earlier), has been asked by Fox to remove it from the site. As I write this, it’s still up, but wouldn’t expect that to be the case much longer.

    I’m going to have to resist peeking at this, but I do agree with your concerns about Anderson getting himself stuck in a rut.

    I was starting to feel that way with The Life Aquatic actually, and I was hoping that Fantastic Mr. Fox would be a nice change of pace for him. I guess that didn’t pan out. Oh well, I’m still kind of excited about this one anyway.
