scriptment
 n.— «“What do you mean, you’re going to greenlight the movie with a kid named Matt directing?” Mr. Grey said, according to Mr. Weston. Yet with just a 65-page “scriptment” (more than a treatment, less than a script) laying out a film about a bunch of friends who happen to capture on camera the utter destruction of New York by a monster, he went with Mr. Weston’s judgment, hedged by Mr. Abrams’s assurance that he would be closely involved with the film.» —“Remaking Paramount by the Seat of His Pants” by Michael Cieply in Los Angeles New York Times Jan. 13, 2008.
