I have just begun writing the screenplay for my novel Policy 99, and clearly am using the novel as my guideline. In the novel, the first chapter I introduced the heroin, Anne, since she is truly the essence of the first novel. Duncan is introduced in the second chapter. Here is my question...following the old adage "In a screenplay something cathartic better happen within the first ten pages", I am considering introducing Duncan in the first scene in the screenplay. I would then introduce Anne about fifteen pages in essentially switching the order of chapters one and two from the book. It's not that Anne's chapter is a complete yawner, but Duncan's first chapter has considerably more zing. Has anyone had any experience (or can think of novel/movie productions) where this happens and does it seem OK?
