A sure-fire strategy to get your script made, Romancing the A-List aims the screenwriter’s talent at the most powerful source for getting a movie made: the A-List actor.

Romancing the A-List focuses on what a screenwriter can do to vastly improve the chances for a green light:

  • Learn how to build a main character that dominates the story.
  • Learn how to structure the script to the character’s dilemma.
  • Learn how to throw key hurdles in the lead character’s path.
  • Learn how to plant reversals to overthrow audience expectations.

Utilize all these and other techniques in your script and you will smile when an A-list actor says “yes”.

What people say

“Chris Keane’s emphasis on developing a central character as the way to get A-List actors to come on board is quite simply brilliant.

Margaret Lazarus and Renner Wunderlich, Oscar® Winners for Saving their Lives and members of the Motion Picture Academy of Arts and Sciences.

“Here’s the difference between Romancing the A-List and every other screenwriting book clogging the shelf: Chris Keane has not only been through the movie and tv wars he’s still engaged in them. His insights aren’t dated or theoretical — they’re as real as the studio notes he got last week. Even more impressive, he doesn’t just linger on his successes. He’s confident enough to analyze his failures and those hard-earned lessons are some of the most instructive in the book.”

Marie D. Jones, Book Reviewer,,

“Romancing the A-List stands head and shoulders above a very crowded field of “how to” books. Successful both as a writer and teacher, Keane explains the tactics necessary for building a story and getting it into the marketplace. Essential reading for anyone interested in a career in screen writing.

Michael Miner, Director, The Book of Stars, Co-writer, Robocop and Anacondas: Hunt for the Blood Orchid
