A sequel to his first book into Hollywood rules of screenwriting practise, Blake Snyder identifies and classifies every big-budget Hollywood movie in 10 story structures. This is mostly considered as a story developer's duty in a film production cycle, to make the screenplay fit into the silverscreen. To develop your movie idea into Hollywood structure, read this book. Highly recommended.
