Does anyone know where I can read a copy of The Sandman film script by Roger Avary?

A few years back, I remember reading Roger Avary's movie script adaptation for Neil Gaiman's Sandman. The PDF file was hosted on Mr. Avary's site around 2002, but since then he no longer has it up. Perhaps he was threatened by the copywrite owner to take it down. Would anyone happen to have a copy or know of where I can find it? It doesn't appear on any of the other film script collection web sites. Thanks.

I am 100% positive it was Avary's and not Rossio's draft I had read and I believe it may have been written mid to late 90's or possibly early 2000.

I don't have a direct answer, unfortunately, but you could ask Neil Gaiman.

Thanks for the link sarabeth, I will try asking the man himself!

On Drew's Script-o-Rama, there are three different scripts available. One done by Gaiman himself, one by Ted Eliot and Terry Rossio, and one by Roger Avary.

Ack, must check links before posting... indeed, the third link to the Avary script is broken. Sorry 'bout that.
