Majors tend to shine in this category

Adapted screenplays are where the majors tend to shine, since the studios like pre-proven material for their big-budget films.

Studio entries with Oscar aspirations include “The Good German,” from scribe Paul Attanasio. Though the pic’s period style has attracted most of the attention, the adaptation of Joseph Kanon’s book is no small feat.

“Perfume: The Story of Murderer” is a European production distributed by DreamWorks. Year-end arrival from writer-director Tom Tykwer (“Run Lola Run”) is based on a popular novel and shouldn’t be counted out yet.

One indie entry gathering support is Warner Independent’s “The Painted Veil,” a December entry in the sweepstakes. Adapted by “Philadelphia” scripter Ron Nyswaner, pic opens up Somerset Maugham’s novel, changing a focused portrait of British expats in China to include a more epic picture of a country in turmoil. Its mature themes could attract attention from the Acad, especially in the writers branch.
