About the Book:

Writing the Script the Big Stars Want to Make....

A sure-fire strategy to get your script made, Romancing the A-List aims the screenwriter's talent at the most powerful source for getting a movie made: the A-List actor.

Romancing the A-List focuses on what a screenwriter can do to vastly improve the chances for a green light:

Learn how to: build a main character that dominates the story; structure the script to the character's dilemma; throw key hurdles in the lead character's path; and plant reversals to overthrow audience expectations.

Utilize all these and other techniques in your script and you will smile when an A-list actor says, "Yes!."

What people say:

"Chris Keane's book, How to Write a Selling Screenplay, is the new bible on the art of writing screenplays. It is a must for any new or experienced writer." – Richard Walter, Professor and Screenwriting Chair, UCLA

"Chris Keane's emphasis on developing a central character as the way to get A-List actors to come on board is quite simply brilliant." - Margaret Lazarus and Renner Wunderlich, Oscar-winning screenwriter for Saving Their Lives

"Here's the difference between Romancing the A-List and every other screenwriting book clogging the shelf: Chris Keane has not only been through the movie and TV wars he's still engaged in them. His insights aren't dated or theoretical — they're as real as the studio notes he got last week. Even more impressive, he doesn't just linger on his successes. He's confident enough to analyze his failures and those hard-earned lessons are some of the most instructive in the book." - Marie D. Jones for

"Romancing the A-List stands head and shoulders above a very crowded field of 'how to' books. Successful both as a writer and teacher, Keane explains the tactics necessary for building a story and getting it into the marketplace. Essential reading for anyone interested in a career in screen writing." - Michael Miner, Director: The Book of Stars, Co-writer: Robocop and Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid
