  1. Adapt away. Daily Mail headline - Teenage exorcists who say Harry Potter has corrupted the world head to Britain armed with Bibles and Holy Water to tackle hotbed of occult activity

    1. dsjones

      Said to be in the vein of "American History X" meets "The Son of Rambow" - a powerful tale of religious zealotry through the eyes of children.

      Fools. Everyone knows Hellmouth is in Sunnydale.

      YUP! Sunnydale truly did suck ...didn't it?

       

  2. I'm conflicted. B.J. and the Bear or Who's the Boss as the Rock/McG's follow-up to The Fall Guy?

      craktactor

      The better choice may be CPO Sharkey. Or a reimagining of Mr. Ed.

  3. I heard the Riddick radio advert this morning and at first thought it was an anti-smoking PSA.

  4. If it were a screenplay the final act of the Bradley Manning Story would cause a reader's head to explode.

      they'd like "what? this is so stupid."

      It's certainly 'character change'.

  5. Whenever a new "teenage girl" movie comes out the reviews always begin with "I know I'm not the target audience and I don't understand any of this movie but let me tell you this is awful."

    1. dsjones

      dsjones

      the fundamental problem with target audiences - compromising story for what the people in charge assume the target wants.

    2. ... who are those guys?

      ... who are those guys?

      When it's a YA novel with a built in audience of millions they want to curb the amount of angry letters they get written on hello kitty stationary.

  6. Sometimes you wake up and find yourself working on a David Fincher movie. Yikes.

      We are lucky that we bought a house on higher ground.

       

      Something I'd advise people to always consider when house hunting... Acts of God.

       

      Or just buy an ark.

      Wow...sad news. Not just for Nolan but all these people that lost their homes.

       

      Hope anybody affected is okay.

  10. Amazon Studios - where scripts go to die but are resurrected as Kindle graphic novels. Amazon Storyteller can't really be about them making movies can it?

    1. dsjones

      dsjones

      Amazon is a toddler who is swimming out into the deep end without any idea how to swim. Their Zombieland pilot proved that they aren't ready.

  11. Reading a script where "asthma" has been repeatedly been spellchecked to "Satan".

      It's probably b/c the FX house and the actors and the P&A are all taking their cut off the back end. Hahaha. I'm kidding!

      Yeah, that number is a LOT closer to $150.

      oh that story is *TOTALLY* writing itself! Could this be the film that, if made, gets Derek Luke *BACK* on the A-/B+ list? :)

      I read the entire manifesto thanks to anonymous. I didn't think it was that "poorly written"it came off as way more intelligent than I expected.

       

      It does seem like something ripped right out of a movie.

      Already copyrighted Black Rambo last week.

      i admit i saw it too and the makeup/special effects team needs an Oscar for making Jeremy Renner look GOOD AS HELL! Like, seriously! Them folks need a statute cause that was a difficult task they did WELL AT! Gemma was worth it. She wasn't naked but in enough tight, form fitting clothes to make the entire 88 minute film almost bearable...

    3. sangun

      sangun

      My girlfriend said of Gemma -- She keeps looking off screen for no reason. Do you think she's looking at her set chair or her driver?

      That man could sit in front of a camera and read from the phonebook for 3 hours and I'd pay to watch it (of course, it would be best if he was shirtless at the same time).

       

  17. Anyone see Killing Them Softly? Is it really ‘F’ CinemaScore worthy?

      Saw it. A friend leaned over and whispered: "It's the equivalent of a 12-year old virgin writing bondage porn". It was pretty posturing.

    3. ThaVillain

      My DRIVE comparison is in the fact that the marketing for Drive promised Fast and the Furious and packed theaters with moviegoers expecting that, but the result was more of an "art house" film, if you will. Same thing here. A lot of folks went expecting HEAT or MIAMI VICE but instead got something totally different, thus the "F" Cinemascore.

    4. ThaVillain

      ThaVillain

      Just looked it up. DRIVE got a "C-" Cinemascore. Not quite an "F" but still, audiences disliked it. It was my favorite movie of 2011. Pretty much everyone I recommended it to (friends, FB, Twitter) hated it. So yeah, I think the analogy applies.

  18. I laughed out loud at The Black List "but we didn't know he was our intern" press release.

      Just IMO, with the "aspiring screenwriting climate" the way it has been as of late, everyone is on the lookout for scams and ripoffs. In the words of Jamie Kennedy, EVERYBODY'S A SUSPECT!

    3. dietgreentea

      dietgreentea

      It's hilarious to me how so many people have this notion that, in the writing world, the word "intern" -- which, in this case, barely even applies -- is somehow a powerful incentive…

    4. sangun

      sangun

      Either it's a scam and there was a prior relationship that got the person the internship and CAA. Or the company is run by morons who didn't do a background check on someone they were attaching their names to in a press release. Either way.

  19. CIA, BBC, Sesame Street, Waffle House. Where's the Tracking Board sex scandal?

  21. I know there's a glut of President in danger scripts but I'd really like for someone to write one where the debate stand-ins save the day. http://tiny.cc/qj6llw

      Logline: A presidential debate gets hijacked by terrorists and it's up to 5 audience members to save the candidates. The theme of the movie is "Don't mess with Jason Statham." Starring Jason Statham, Nic Cage, Jennifer Lawrence, Rosie O'donnel and Christopher Lloyd.

  23. Train vs. bus accident in Downtown LA. No serious injuries but the bus with a large sign for "Elementary" looks the worse for wear.

  24. Irradiated butterflies in Japan. Was Mothra friendly?

  25. Had a conversation about how to judge if your film is a flop or not. It took weeks for someone to bother to post a pirated copy of The Raven on the internet.
