] I've been writing an amateur screenplay,(sort of a misnomer really, considering I know nothing about them) of (what else) P&P, and I was wondering if copying out a lot of the original is prohibited. Too bad if it is.. If anyone has any info about that or would like to see my (still a bit unfinished) screenplay, please reply. Thanx.
Welcome, AndreaJ!I know nothing about screenplays either, but it strikes me that to write a screenplay of a novel without using a lot of the original dialogue is a) rather missing the point and b)especially with something like P&P, a waste of the best part of it!
You might get a more informed response if you post your question in Ramble, which is where we discuss things not directly related to the novels themselves.
