The Withnail & I Script - Withnail Screenplay
Widely regarded as one of the funniest, most quoted film scripts ever written, Bruce Robinson was paid a token £1 for the Withnail and I script. The story was originally a novel – something that Bruce Robinson described as being very easy and enjoyable to write. The screenplay was significantly less so.
The official Withnail screenplay is published by Bloomsbury Paperbacks and includes a few extra scenes that were excluded from the movie. This includes including Withnail fixing the Jag and buying Whisky for the journey to the cottage.
The official Withnail and I script also includes an introduction from Bruce Robinson where he writes about where the story and dialogue came from and about the inspiration for Withnail.
