I am selling my copy of the screenplay for Ken Park. This seems to be one of the first drafts, written in 1997 or 98.
The guy who sold it to me was an art dealer who worked with Clark, he got to know Korine too and he gave him the screenplay in 1998.
There are some scenes in this screenplay that do not appear in the movie. See below:
1. After Shawn and his girlfriend talk about the fight at school, there is a cutaway to a scene where a tall, nerdy black kid beats up a quadropelegic retarded boy, for running over his sneakers with his wheelchair.
2. Tate's monologue before the sex scene cuts in is considerably longer. The full monologue is:
I had a lot of cowlicks. And as long as I lived I never really had a true girlfriend. I used to spit on girls and make my friends laugh. I did this because I was so ugly that I knew I could never have a girl. The kind of girl I wanted. In the seventh grade a dog bit off my face. I had to chase the dog in order to get my nose back. People would walk by me and say,"Tate is insane." I was smart though. I could remember things and in a way I was a cut above the rest. My father used to sell pin ball machines. He had a pot belly and he would wear gym shorts in the winter. I wanted to join the army but I couldn't get in. I would always brag that my uncle was in the Mafia. I thought about going to a housing project and start shooting at people. But I knew I would miss everyone, that's why I couldn't get in the army. Once I stole a stuffed animal from Disneyland and I got caught. They took me to the holding place on the back of a golf cart.
3. The film ends with Ken Park finding out that his friend Hank got his girlfriend pregnant. The baby is black. The film ends with the following monologue voice over from Ken Park:
KEN PARK (V.O.)
I don't know why I care. Yesterday I bought milk and today it was spoiled. I drank it, and to me it was cottage cheese. It's so easy to make do. We do it all the time.
