Why You Don’t Always Need a Screenplay to Make a Great Film

After doing a ton a research into unscripted feature films, you'd be amazed at how many good films are made with just an outline and doesn't use a formatted screenplay. They were even figuring out dialogue in IRON MAN. Jeff Bridges weaves a crazy tale from the set!

“They had no script, man! They had an outline. We would show up for big scenes every day and we wouldn’t know what we were going to say. We would have to go into our trailer and work on this scene and call up writers on the phone, ‘You got any ideas?’ Meanwhile the crew is tapping their foot on the stage waiting for us to come on.”

Geez that's insane, thanks for the post!

This is not a bad thing at all you just need to have the imagination. Ah mean, i've been on set where we've had to just disregard the screenplay so winging it is not a bad thing... but an outline is important all the same.
