  1. Hey Hive Mind. I'm doing some research and I'm looking for your favorite movies where two or more lovable lugs go on the run from the mob, the government, other baddies after they either a) unknowingly fuck something up B) get embroiled in a plot unwittingly or c) steal from said bad guys or government... What are some of your favorite "on the run" movies? Thanks--MP

      Big fan of Midnight Run myself, but I'm surprised that Some Like It Hot hasn't come up yet.

      Also, a more recent Irish entry: The Young Offenders (

      ) And yes, that's English they're speaking.

      If I lived in LA i'd be seriously tempted. Congrats on getting the staff gig on State of Affairs.

  3. Ronald Moore's bible for Battlestar Gallactica is nothing short of "frakking" genius. If anybody is looking to see what it takes to write a series, do yourself a favor and read that TV Bible... it's outstanding. I keep re-reading it and I learn something new every time

      Thanks for this. Michael Shannon is all kinds of awesome.

  5. What's the best dramatic TV Pilot Outline you've read or seen? I loved the original Freaks and Geeks outline and the Veronica Mars one... what about you?

      Maybe not the best, but I'm reading Hannibal right now. It's pretty good.

      The bible for The Wire is posted here on TB. Pretty good example.

  6. I highly recommend the Steve Kessler documentary "Paul Williams: Still Alive” ... awesome. Paul Williams wrote some of the biggest hits in the 70s, appeared on Carson, was in Planet of the Apes... amazing story. Funny and heartwarming

      wasn't trying to rain on your parade or anything buddy. I got all excited, followed your link then got confused... when back to the top of the page and realized it was linking to the 2012.

      Great - got some nice deadlines being set via the chat room - the TB (unofficial) Writers' Group is gonna kill it this year. Right?

      Learning how to take criticism in the new year. It's tough, but I'm getting the hang of letting other people check out my writing. It's gonna be a great year!

      going to outline the action thriller I'm currently working on and put it aside because it's not quite right yet and get to work on a horror thriller with some interesting psychosexual and gothic overtones...and also work on tv stuff (a spec and a couple of pilots)

  8. This Man of Steel Trailer is AWESOME. So excited for next Summer! http://www.tracking-board.com/man-of-steel-trailer-2-henry-cavill-diane-lane-russell-crowe/

  10. Kind of enjoying this rainy weather in LaLa Land. Reminds me of fall/winter in Chicago.... now I just need to find a pile of leaves to jump in when it's dry again ;-)

  11. Just got married last week y'all and started a writing fellowship this week... life is good... how are you?

  12. Very happy to be part of the "Super Six" for 'TB Recommends' -- still getting reads on Nexxus and working on some new projects. Hopefully new reps will be part of the future. I love this site and everybody's honest feedback and support! Viva la TB!

  13. Hey all. Lots have asked how my Nexxus Pilot is going after TB Recommends. I just did a minor rewrite for a management company (who sent it to a big 3 agency) and I am in wait and see mode. The file on the file exchange is the one originally sent to TB, it has since been updated(Grammar, plot point or two, etc.) and is much more clean. But, I am in wait-n-see mode. All the initial hub but was huge. Now, I anxiously await next steps. Shout out to TB for recommending me. Will keep u posted.

      It'd be great to get all the TB recommends guys to maybe start a post in the forum somewhere to talk about their experiences, etc. Could be kind of cool.

      It was only to 300 YEARS, which I don't believe has sold yet.

      Wowza, Deadline commenters are of the AintItCool variety. Just incredibly angry. At everything!

  15. 30Rock watchers... can someone tell me what happened with Jack and Avery? Are they married? I know they have a kid together but has she been on this season and what's their relationship status? Thanks!

  16. Just read "Snow White and the Huntsman" and I loved it... can't believe I didn't read this long ago. It's beautiful, fun, simple, action packed and filled with tons of escalating conflict.

      Looks like John Lee Hancock and Hossein Amini rewrote it for the screen. They share writing credit on it.

    2. CookieMonster

      Which version did you read? Because I thought the original one floating around was awful. From the previews it appears the rewrite was much better.

    3. mikeyP_73

      mikeyP_73

      I read a recent version - 2nd or 3rd draft maybe?

      Looks great. Hardy's voice is absolutely haunting. Only Nolan could figure out how to outdo Ledger's Joker.

      I heard it's like a 10 year gap between movies in the story...looks amazing... Can't wait to see the prologue

    3. Hasmap

      Hasmap

      It's an 8 year gap. Nolan said all will explained in the film.

       

  19. Really? Thomas Edison Demon Hunter and Dances with Werewolves? Is it April 1st?

      They've been announcing Werewolves since '09. I hope they get their $10 million because I'm wondering how much 3D that can buy.

  20. Best Pilot for 2012 you've read so far? Tell me? I read Graceland and it was okay... felt like a dated 90's TNT show. Wexler's Pilot for TBS was funny and Forty by Doug Elin was just okay... but nothing has popped yet for me... read up to 10 pages of others and they seemed flat. Anybody got one or more they love?

      Awake was great, loved the finish pilot. Hell on Wheels also had a strong finished pilot but I am still luke warm on it. Red, I agree, Exit Strategy had some much potential but execution was SO POOR.

       

    3. LeftyJones

      LeftyJones

      @Mikey P -- agree re: Graceland. Very 90s. But don't knock it to TNT... This is like USA net's original identity. Remember Silk Stalkings, Pacific Blue? And Eastin writes a lot of annoying little asides that make me want to slap him.

    4. mikeyP_73

      mikeyP_73

      @LeftyJones -- ha! that's right. Oh man - Silk Stalkings. What if they rebooted that? ;0

       

  21. ABRAHAM LINCOLN VS ZOMBIES Sold? I need to whip up a new spec script ... maybe "Undead Presidents vs. Godzilla" or "Thomas Jefferson vs. The Witches of Salem Mass." or "Nixon vs. Dracula" ... oh boy

  22. Read the Nicholl winner "Cutter" and can't get it out of my head - highly recommend. Nothing mind bending - just great story telling and a great dilemma

      and I read the Nicholl Winner Man of Clay....

       

      Do NOT recommend.

       

      Has about 20 good pages of mystery and then wowzers does that thing fall down.

    3. SeeriousTimes

      will check out cutter

      what you need is a title like, "John Pinkerton is Fucking My Bitch Whore Mother." or something like that

      Yeah, uh, 500 Days of Summer already pretty much owned the word 'bitch' and only did it in the epigram.
