Someone has written a review of the first draft screenplay for “Rent”. I think I’ve mentioned my obsession with the musical before. I wasn’t thrilled to hear they would be filming it, but when I heard Spike Lee and Robert DeNiro might be involved, I thought it could be okay. Unfortunately it’s since fallen into Development Hell and it doesn’t look like it’ll ever get made. This script makes it sound like it could’ve been something special. (Although I’m disappointed that they’ve turned “Light my Candle” into dialogue rather than a song. I love that bit.)
