  1. Anybody got any party options for Palm Spring Film Fest Next week?

  2. Kind of Surprised the $1 Million David Ayer WWII Spec Script 'Fury' is still M.I.A.

      Was it really a spec and go out? I had assumed it was Lesher finding money at QED.

    2. Roark

      I was under the impression QED paid the best price for it, implying others were able to bid on it as well. These million dollar scripts tend to turn up is all.

  3. PILOT SEASON!! Woo hooo!

      Now if only they will hire us too!

  4. Wasn't terribly enamored with Runner, Runner. Fairly hollow and superficial.

      I love online poker, so I kind of dug it. Plus the ending was pretty cool and did surprise me. But agreed, parts of it felt like chunks of other movies, like WALL STREET and any undercover cop movie.

      Koppelman has some serious juice as a writer. But all the writing juice in the world ain't gonna make Wall Street 5 pop and sizzle.

  5. Anybody else read Wheeler Dealer? Can't upload my watermarked copy.

      Just wanted to know if anyone else hated it as much as I did. So superficial and shallow, no surprise Ratner is attached.

  6. The Raid delivers!

  8. Wolf of Wall Street, Black List '07, guess it's finally time to read it.

      I read it. Good flick. A cautionary tale of greed, excess, and knowing who your friends are.

  9. Also had to read revised LAYOVER with Hoeber brothers revisions and Run All Night for a director. #smh

      Which LAYOVER? The one by Zach Dean or the one about the kidnapping ring at the airport hotel?

      Good question - I was assuming it was the Zach Dean one (which didn't do much for me as written in the original draft).

    4. Roark

      Roark

      Zach Dean, didn't read the OG draft. Straightfoward action movie, decent gunplay. CBS Films material.

  10. Maybe late to the party but really enjoyed Blood Mountain. Stokes is such an elegant writer.

      regardless of the plot interpretation, it's still elegant writing.

  11. Anyone have a SXSW party grid?!

    1. treyselman

      treyselman

      Pretty solid list here: http://www.eventbrite.com/sxsw but these guys probably have the whole thing: [email protected]

    2. treyselman

      treyselman

      and here they are. It's $5 this year. But that's worth it if you ask me... http://www.sxshhh.com/

      Thank you good sir.

  12. Would love any info on tribeca as it comes out, PR people, events and the like.

    I found your festival coverage in Sundance very helpful and would appreciate it if you could round up any details and post them.

    Thanks.

  13. Is this DJ No Hands sheridan?

  14. welcome to the boards.

  15. RDJ in PTA's Inherent Vice would be perfect.

  16. David Slade the latest feature director to nab a Pilot. Gunna be hard out there for a pimp.

  17. I am very, very confused however as "Edge of the Unknown" seems EXACTLY THE SAME MOVIE as "Voices from the Dead" that sold today.

  18. Will finally be paid for months of work by a B level director who should be happy with all the leads I gave him. #UngratefulBastard

  19. Wow, had no idea Wonder Woman could be that bad. Worse than Bionic Woman.

      It's total pop cultural trash. Would be better if she just spinned around like a go-go dancer in her disco outfit to top 40 tracks.

      It would be nice if a screenplay about a female hero made her look less like an idiot and more like a hero.

      You don't like the pop diva Wonder Woman? #gasp

  20. Jonathan Demme, Mark Romanek and Fuqua are now doing pilots. Crazy world we live in.

      Just shows how the sugar tit of Hollywood Features is over. Pilots are a great deal for a Director if they can land them, just amazed about Demme and Romanek more than Fuqua.

    3. Roark

      Roark

      You get guys like John Dahl and Jon Avenet doing a ton of television even though they may have done features. Then there's guys like Danny Cannon who's whole career is based on Directing/Producing Pilots.

      Don't go too crazy w/the Nazis BoyNo -- I'm watching u lol

       

      But yeah, usually do 3mos of solid research, but remember - "never let the truth get in the way of a good story"

      Would never let the truth get in the way. I absolutely adore doing research. I could do it forever actually like a character in Synecdoche, New York.

  22. Thought the bridge was OK btw, but it's nothing better than a CBS Films B Movie without something to elevate the material.

    1. Cyber Hater

      Cyber Hater

      Kinda with u... But thoroughly enjoyable

    2. Roark

      Roark

      Thought it did the little things right, but without something thematic to elevate the material you're looking at a Simon West directed action flick.

    3. Cyber Hater

      Cyber Hater

      def needed more curveballs and higher stakes! But i liked the characters, thta's ALWAYS good

  23. One was also sent The Bridge.

  24. Two different bosses both sent Game Theory this week. Making the Rounds I guess.

  25. Kevin Smith is like Piggy in the Lord of the Flies. Love watching the world turn on him.

      I thanked him for giving me new respect for Uwe Boll shortly after the Red State screening. He wasn't very nice about it. :)

      I hate that fat man. Wish he'd just retire already. There is no way people pay $60 for a screening and a Q & A on his roadshow.
