Regardless of the fact that Branislav Nušić is one of the writers whose works are still performed as plays in theaters and despite the fact that a large number of his works has been adapted as film, television drama and series, there is no paper that presents an analysis of his screen adaptations. The subject of our research was the analysis of Nušić’s literary work from the perspective of transmedial narratology. Thanks to the transmedial method, we were able to provide a new approach to Nušić’s writings. Thus, we presented his work as well as the literature from the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century from the perspective of new, contemporary theories of the literary interpretation. Nušić’s works were transformed into a large number of operas, comic books, theater plays, films, television films, dramas and series by the snowball effect. The analysis has confirmed that the literary work and its adaptation are two separate works made by two different creators. Interes...ting directorial solutions for adapting works are systematically presented. Some directors followed the chronology of the events and some have deviated from that. Guided by Doležel’s typology, we have recognized all three types of conecting one fictional world to another. The works were placed in new spatial and time contexts and the directors have filled in the blanks of the original world. Different directorial intentions have sometimes made a change of genre. However, wishes and strivings of Nušić’s characters are intact and there are the reasons for modernity of Nušić’s works.
