Inside The Script

Classic movie fans, rejoice! If you've enjoyed watching Charlton Heston star in the nativity saga "Ben Hur," or sat on the edge of your seat as Cary Grant outran mysterious pursuers in "North by Northwest," you can now supplement your cinema experiences with eBook versions of the original movie scripts.

Warner Brothers' "Inside The Script" series will feature "Ben Hur," "North by Northwest," "Casablanca" and "An American In Paris." According to BBC News, the eBooks will include supplemental materials such as costume sketches and shooting journals from the film sets. They will cost $9.99 each and be available on the Kindle, Nook, and in the iBookstore.

"People love movies because of the stories they tell," said Thomas Gewecke, President of Warner Bros. Digital Distribution. "Now we can give fans rarely seen details of how these stories came together and take their enjoyment of films to a whole new level."

The Wall Street Journal featured a screen shot of the "Casablanca" eBook. Gewecke told the publication that he hopes to extend the series to include newer titles as well.

Personally, we're holding out for "Space Jam".
