    I grew up on a steady diet of war movies, adventure stories and epics and still love every one of them to bits -- Where Eagles Dare, Guns of Navarone, Lawrence of Arabia.

    Sidney Lumet, Oliver Stone and David Lean are my cinematic idols. I enjoy constructing hardboiled genre movies and realworld espionage stories.

    I'm repped by David Saunders at APA, and Alexander, Lawrence, Frumes & Labowitz, LLP

  1. Doesn't sound like the Transformers writers room improved the franchise...

      The other ones sucked. There's no reason this one would be different. Especially when its the same director.

  2. Neil Turitz's articles on Tracking Board are genius. I love this guy, and hope he gets more exposure in 2017 for all his excellent work.

      Amen to all of that, though I don't always agree, he does make excellent points

      Agreed! Everything he writes is fresh and insightful.

  3. In a galaxy far, far away, I co-wrote a small straight to DVD arthouse movie called Hard Target 2. Trailer's out.

      Great! Don't forget to keep track of the foreign levy monies!

  4. 99 Homes is indie thriller filming at its best. Now streaming on Amazon Prime, can't believe I missed it when it came out in cinemas

      Liked the film, but the script was MUCH better, stronger...

      will check it out, thanks

       

  5. I urge everyone to get stuck into the TB Runway pilot reviews. Andrew and Ashish are on fire. Variety and Deadline should snap them up.

      I read them all last night and am anxiously awaiting the next round! I laughed out loud several times at the reviews.

  6. Exquisite timing. One week before The Martian comes out, Nasa announces they've found water on Mars.

      Oh please, the film's going to be huge. I'm so tired of this PC gotcha' culture where every word a celebrity utters is parsed for some kind of offense. It's like the Internet meets the Salem witch trials.

      +1, Ben. On top of that, he hasn't said anything even remotely wrong.

  7. Finally watched Friedkin's Sorcerer. See it on the biggest screen you can. https://thedissolve.com/features/interview/543-william-friedkin-on-sorcerer-his-career-and-fate/

      Awesome film, fantastic score (Tangerine Dream), and a really interesting interview with the always lucid Friedkin. Thanks for the link.

      I love the fact that he's 78 and still making unconventional movies like Killer Joe.

  8. How do I #FF Bash for his laser guided notes service? 5 star best ever.

  9. Anyone want to hazard a guess how much money Shonda Rimes earns a year as the world's most successful writer-producer. $10m? $50m?

      imagine what she earns every thursday night -- the triple bill of grays anatomy and how to get away with murder and scandal....

  10. Wanted to publicly thank and endorse Reader George's coverage skills. The man is thorough and insightful

      Hey, appreciate the shout-out! Enjoyed the read.

      Me too! George gave me amazing notes on Henchman right before I turned it in for coverage :D

  11. The number of writers getting signed up with reps off the back of the TB pilot contest is truly amazing

      TB Red for the win! :)

      It's about making the RIGHT investments and TB via coverage / contests has proven results. If you have the talent you will get noticed here vs countless other places that are nothing more than cash grabs selling a dream.

      i for one am inspired to not only keep writing but keep going and I know that TB is the place where more people are getting discovered, getting repped and all that. So i'm thankful for this site and the community here

       

  12. Captain Phillips is the best adult thriller I've seen for a very long time. Felt utterly real and terrifying in a non hollywood way. Greengrass is back.
