Icons are shattered in screenplay (8)
I believe the answer is:
'screenplay' is the definition.
(I've seen this in another clue)
'icons are shattered' is the wordplay.
'shattered' indicates an anagram.
'iconsare' with letters rearranged gives 'SCENARIO'.
'in' acts as a link.
(Other definitions for scenario that I've seen before include "Imagined situation" , "Summary of plot of play" , "Story outline" , "Iron case (anag)" , "Written outline of a film or play" .)
