Final Draft unveils special ‘Remake Edition’

Gives writers the ability to butcher 1,000+ movies and TV shows

In an effort to stay relevant in today’s marketplace, Final Draft has released a special edition of its famous scriptwriting software that focuses on remakes, sequels and adaptations.

“We’ve compiled the original scripts from classic movies, cheesy TV shows and high-concept books,” said a Final Draft representative. “Users can just click on a script, tweak a few character names – and voila! They’ve got themselves a remake.”

Given Hollywood’s current trend of mining every possible existing property for material, even the most obscure titles have been included in the program.

“From Sledge Hammer to M.A.N.T.I.S. to that one 60’s movie about flying cars, we have them all,” said the company rep. “It’s a great way for today’s writers to develop completely unoriginal work based on questionable source material.”

Final Draft plans to release a 3D edition focusing on toy properties in early 2010.
