Tonight He Comes


Simplyscripts has a link to an early draft of Hancock-- I think I understand why screenwriter Vincent Ngo declined an interview with the New York Times before the film was released, the script barely resembles the final product. “Tonight” plays out like a really, really dark episode of “Amazing Stories” -- if it aired on late night cable. And get this: Hancock isn’t even the protagonist.

At the end of the day, it’s hard to criticize the changes because audiences ate it up like gravy on a biscuit. Ngo’s script, as good as it is, speaks to a niche audience and not the four quadrant behemoth. Still, I’d love to see “Tonight He Comes” as a graphic novel.
