Here is the script you have to do and tape and send to http://www.iamthewimpykid.com/ to possibly be the star of the upcoming movie, Diary of a Wimpy Kid. The script is “revised” which means that it is changed around a bit. So here’s the script:
Scene 1 Revised
TIGHT ON A CLOSED BOOK. The cover reads “Diary”. Pull back to reveal GREG HEFFLY is holding the book and directly addresing the camera. Behind him is a WHITE BACKGROUND.
“Okay, first of all, let me get this straight: this is a JOURNAL not a diary.”
“Right I know what it says on the cover, but when Mom went out to buy this thing I told her not to get me a book that said “DIARY” on it. This just proves that Mom doesn’t know anything. If I walk into my first day of middle school carrying this book around, I might as well be wearing a sign that says “punch me”!
INSERT SHOT: THE CARTOON DRAWING FROM THE BOOK OF THE BULLY DISCOVERING GREG’S DIARY. The drawing becomes animated: the bully punches Greg, sending him and the “diary” flying.
BACK ON GREG adressing the camera.
“The only reason I agreed to write in this thing is because one day when I’m rich and famous I’ll have better things to do than answer peoples’ stupid questions all day long, and this book is really gonna come in handy.
INSERT SHOT: THE CARTOON DRAWING FROM THE BOOK OF GREG AT THE PRESS CONFERENCE. The drawing becomes animated as reporters shout questions at Greg.
Gregory! Tell us about your childhood!
Were you always so smart and handsome?
Greg waves his journal at them.
BACK TO GREG addressing the camera.
“I actually should have started keeping a diary– Imean journal! — years ago. Now there’s this gap from birth to middle school.”
“Anyway, I think future generations will be glad I kept a record of my life, but the truth is when they make a movie or TV mini-series about me, they’ll probably just skip over the middle school years and go right to the part where I’m famous.
“Seriously, who’s gonna want to see a movie about a guy who’s stuck in middle schoo; with a bunch of half-grown morons.”
So that’s the scrip! Just copy it from here and paste it into a Mircosoft Word document and print it for your own, or just go to the link at the top of this post and print it out yourself!
