Darabont skillfuly adapts King's novel to the screen.; not a slavish adaptation, this screenplay seeks instead to convey the spirit of King's novel in cinematic terms. For example, instead of having prison guard Paul Edgecomb go out and investigate the murders of the two dead girls for which his prisoner, John Coffey, has been condemned, he finds out by a transfer of information osmoticqally from Coffey. This serves the twofold purpose of shortening the film's running time (the finished film is over three hours in length), and also works much better cinematically, conveying the needed information in four minutes instead of twenty or so. The chance to read a Darabont screenplay is one aspiring screenwriters should take. I was privileged to work with Frank Darabont on "The Green Mile". It is an experience I will never forget, and I cannot recommend this book, or the film to which it gave rise, enough.

I love to read and watch the movie, as well. It's clear and funny as all get out! If a person wants to get an idea on how to write a screenplay. This book could help.Published 18 months ago by Janell
A great study in script to screen adaption. Very insightful. The picture of SK sitting in "Old Sparky" alone is worth the price!Published on February 18, 2011 by Snu Snu
