An aspiring screenwriter named Ernest Cline wrote a spec screenplay for 'Buckaroo Banzai Against the World Crime League' and made it available on the internet for fans to read back in 1996. He did this purely for his own amusement. This script was in no way associated with or sanctioned by Polygram, Harry Bailly Prod, or Earl Mac Rauch.
The script was picked up by a production company and was shopped around for a little while but nothing happened with it. Ernie eventually removed the script from the web and requested that other website do so as well. He has since reposted it to the Internet here: http://www.ernestcline.com/bbawcl/.
