It’s a Fun Must-Read: ‘How I wrote the script for “Groundhog Day” in less than a week’

Danny Rubin, who wrote the original script for the classic 1993 film “Groundhog Day,” writes in a piece for the Telegraph how he got the idea for the film while sitting in a movie theater in Los Angeles waiting for another film to begin.

In this delicious trip down memory lane, Rubin explains how Harold Ramis got involved with the project, and how, most recently, “Groundhog Day” has become a musical.

Here’s a sample from Rubin’s piece: “When I sat down to begin writing this screenplay the first thing I knew I had to figure out was which day was repeating. To begin, I simply opened the calendar and the first holiday I came across was Groundhog Day, February 2. Yes, it was that simple.”

  1. I love this movie! I use to be a film editor. I ran a lot of BAD movies. Once in awhile a good one came along. This was one of them.
