Product Overview

"Nick Naylor doesn't hide the truth...he filters it"--The official screenplay book tie-in to the hit movie from Fox Searchlight, based on the acclaimed novel.
A fiercely satirical look at today's "culture of spin," this hilarious movie portrays the chief spokesman for Big Tobacco, Nick Naylor, as the hero. Nick makes his living defending the rights of smokers and cigarette makers. Confronted by health zealots out to ban tobacco and an opportunistic senator who wants to put poison labels on cigarette packs, Nick goes on a PR offensive, spinning away the dangers of cigarettes on TV talk shows and enlisting a Hollywood super-agent to promote smoking in movies.
Nick's newfound notoriety attracts the attention of both tobacco's head honcho and an investigative reporter for an influential Washington daily. Nick says he is just doing what it takes to pay the mortgage, but the increased scrutiny of his son and a very real death threat may force him to think differently.
"Thank You for Smoking" features an all star cast including Aaron Eckhart, Maria Bello, Cameron Bright, Adam Brody, Sam Elliott, Katie Holmes, David Koechner, Rob Lowe, William H. Macy, J.K. Simmons, and Robert Duvall. The Newmarket Shooting Script(R) book includes the screenplay and introduction by Jason Reitman, a foreword by Christopher Buckley, production notes, a section of 23 color photos, and the complete cast and crew credits.
