Michael Chabon’s Famous, Unfilmed “Spider-man 2″ Script is Yours

Michael Chabon, who I’ll be seeing at Calvin’s Festival of Faith and Writing next week, isn’t just an acclaimed novelist. He also took a stab at the screenplay for Spider-man 2, and when I heard him speak about that in Seattle a few years ago, he talked about how the experience of writing a comic book movie for Hollyowod was not one he was eager to repeat.

Now, the script he wrote is available for download, at least for now, via McSweeneys.

About Jeffrey Overstreet

Jeffrey Overstreet has two passions: writing fiction, and celebrating art — music, cinema, photography, literature — through writing and teaching. He is the author of a “memoir of dangerous moviegoing” — Through a Screen Darkly. And his four-novel fantasy series, The Auralia Thread, which begins with Auralia's Colors, was published by Random House. He speaks at universities and conferences around the world about understanding art through eyes of faith. He is earning his MFA in Creative Writing at Seattle Pacific University, where he has worked for 11 years as an editor, writer, and communications project manager. His work has been recognized in The New Yorker, TIME, The Seattle Times, IMAGE, Ravi Zacharias International — and Christianity Today, where he served as a film journalist for more than a decade. He recently began a weekly column called "Listening Closer" for Christ and Pop Culture.
