Un document rare vient de faire surface sur les sites de vente en ligne. Il s'agit d'un des scripts du film "La Guerre du Feu" de Jean-Jacques Annaud, daté du 31 août 1979. Il n'est pas inutile de rappeler que le film n'est sorti dans les salles de cinéma qu'en 1981.
Cette deuxième version du scénario est signée Gérard Brach, d'après le roman de Rosny aisne [sic].
L'intrigue est ainsi résumée : "This story takes place in prehistoric time when three prehistoric tribesmen search for a new fire source."
Le vendeur donne quelques précisions sur la provenance du script :
"I recently purchased a huge collection of movie Scripts of some of the best classic motion pictures of all time. These came from a well-organized personal home reference library from a successful Hollywood Writer/Director/Producer that took him over 30 years to put together. (He did not want his name disclosed) The Producer was moving and decided to downsize his library because he wanted to just concentrate on directing and producing. The scripts accumulated are scripts from studio libraries of some of the most popular and award winning movies of all time. I haven’t had time to look through all the scripts yet but some are revised and rare additions. Over the next few weeks I will be listing most of these since I need to make room. Check back weekly for new listings. I'm not an expert at determining if these are originals or copies of the originals but all scripts are sold as is."
