Movie Scott Rosenberg scripts

Looking for any script by Scott Rosenberg. I've got Things to Do in Denver..., Johnny Diamond and The Dogs of Winter, but I'm looking for any others that are out there.
Does anybody know whether or not Rosenberg did some script doctoring on Cloverfield (2008)? He was given a "thanks" credit, which is sometimes code for script doctoring help. Just wondering.

Thanks a bunch. I just saw that they've turned this script into a comic book run of 5 or 6 issues. Maybe that will help get the movie finally made.

I was just listening to Brian Koppelman's podcast - in an old episode he interviews Scott, who says his original draft of Gone in Sixty Seconds, which was set in Boston, was really good. It then, typically, got butchered by cast and studio. Is there any chance at all that someone out there might have a lead on this? His script's are always a great read.

I agree with Rosenberg. I read couple of his drafts, and while not perfect or anything, they were still better and more fun to read than watching the movie.

Couple from Scott...
His 1st draft for Gone in 60 is fantastic.
I don't have The Dogs of Winter. Can you post it?

Thanks for these Scott Rosenberg screenplays guys. (What is he doing now?)
He's been off writing a lot of jungle action. He did a substantial rewrite on Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle and he's the guy Sony Pictures picked to adapt Grasshopper Jungle for Edgar Wright. I'm happy for him. He's a great writer and it seems like he could be experiencing a Shane Blackish comeback period.

Thanks for that information.

Rosenberg's first draft is dated January 22, 1999, and is 128 pages long. There is also a revised draft from June 4, 1999, which is 132 pages long. I read both of these again recently, and loved them even more than the first time, and i would rather read these scripts again than ever watch the film.

Also, after Rosenberg left the project due to disagreements he had with director (and producers?), J.J. Abrams and Jonathan Hensleigh were brought in to rewrite the script, but none of their drafts ever surfaced. Only those two early Rosenberg's did, as far as i know.

Thanks for the details. Could you share a link? Would be much appreciated on my part. :)

They surely moved fast. 18 months from first draft to release.
