Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend Screenplay (Censored and Unpublished)


by Richard Matheson

The film-adaptation Matheson wrote in the 1950's for his classic novel I AM LEGEND, which was never produced as it never made it past censorship boards

Product Description

Published 2012

While there have been three adaptations of Richard Matheson’s classic novel I AM LEGEND none of the scripts have followed the novel. Matheson wrote a script in the 1950s which did. It was purchased by Hammer Films in England. However, both the British and U.S. censor boards wanted extensive alterations that neither Matheson nor Hammer Films were willing to make. RICHARD MATHESON’S CENSORED AND UNPRODUCED I AM LEGEND SCREENPLAY is the script Matheson wrote and how he envisioned his novel being filmed.

This tradepaperback includes the script, history of the screenplay as well as the U.S. Censor Board letter outlining their objections.
