Duplicity Script taken from a transcript of the screenplay and/or the Clive Owen and Julia Roberts movie. He also wrote and directed Duplicity, starring Julia Roberts and Clive When writing an original screenplay, Gilroy believes that you need to. Theoretical notions of the screenplay have largely been cast in terms of in the screenplay as “the metaphoric center of urban duplicity.
Play with it and see where it goes. He goes on to say that there were so many different versions and different directions that he took with Michael Clayton — not in draft form, but in outlines or concepts.
We need you!
As we know, it thankfully ended up being a character driven drama instead. Play with the idea.
Exhaust all of the possibilities until you find what version appeals to you most as a storyteller. Understanding human behavior is key in any screenwriting, but especially writing the original screenplay where you have no pre-existing material to work from. He has no strict rules for the format of the outline.
He rightfully states that you have to know the end of your movie so that you can build to it.

Whatever outline process you have, just know the major beats of the story from beginning to end. This is the process of going from outline to script. It hurts when you sell a project you love and then suddenly the project you really cared about will never see the light of day.
More than ever now, there are so many contests and agents and producers. Writing is my job. I start in the morning and write all day.
I was by no means the best writer in my class in college. Hollywood does not lack for quality writing.
Mankiewicz to the madcap referencing of Tarantino's characters, but Gilroy goes in the other direction. Writing the lines for the stoic Jason Bourne gave his lines a curt, punchy feel that calls to mind some of the finest plotters of film noir.
His taut dialogue keeps plots moving even as he deceptively fleshes out characters and makes them highly interesting.
He's perhaps too much in love with puzzles, though; Michael Clayton, good as it was, bogs down in some of its jagged pieces, which came together to make a satisfying whole but don't hold up as well with multiple viewings.
Still, I'd wager it was one of the finest American movies of '07, which overflowed with cinematic gifts, thus putting the pressure on for Gilroy's sophomore effort behind the camera, Duplicity.
In some ways, Duplicity plays like a comedic version of Michael Clayton, with its corporate intrigue plot and the twisted mire of its narrative.
Where Clayton profiled the crumbling of those who couldn't accept the status quo any longer, though, Duplicity gives us characters who can't stop playing the game at any time.
The latest entry in that strange mash-up of romantic comedy and spy thriller, it brings out something we haven't quite seen in Gilroy's on-point, thrilling scripts: humor. They meet at a Fourth of July party, Ray tries to seduce her, seemingly succeeds, then wakes up to find that she stole classified documents from him.
This is pretty much the last time in the film that anything ever makes sense, so you might as well buckle up now.The barbs Ray and Claire throw at each other in between their numerous make-up sessions are so acidic they could burn through steel. It's happening, Ray.

Is it a long explanation? So get to work.
It was so very worth it. We tend to celebrate verbosity in screenplays, from the nonstop wit of Herman J. This is a waste of time. Let's have that! We believe in The Screenplay.
