  1. As TB Blue would say, "there's a movie in HERE somewhere": http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/10/11/west-philly-teens-build-g_n_1004723.html

      I hope so. It's "The Blind Side a la Fast & Furious." This story makes me proud of my hometown, timed nicely post-Phillies season ender.

  2. Who are the best writers working for TV right now.

  3. If they actually cast Channing Tatum as the new Crow I literally beg for my own death. He has about much range as wide angle shot on a cold bowl of soup.

      Weird. I was actually going to suggest both Joshua Jackson or Joseph Gordon-Levitt. WTF. You guys are freaking me out.

      Yea -- you need an actor who can mix in a little crazy with his vengeance. I always felt The Crow was Batman and The Joker mixed together and should be cast that way.

      The test for the right genre should be your own personal taste. If you can objectively say that you'd go see your movie opening weekend if it wasn't yours, then you're doing the right thing, irregardless of what the spec market is or isn't. Do good work and the offers will follow...

      Pennsylvania is Hollywood East which is why I'm proud to say I'm a member of the Keystone Mafia, though Philly would've made a better Gotham. Just sayin'.

  7. Funniest comment EVER re Transformers3 : As a one-eyed writer, I am offended that I do not have a chance to see the film at the midnight advance showings because they are all 3D. There are plenty of other monoculists out there who are as pissed as I am. Maybe I should sue under the Persons With Disabilities Act. I’ve got my eye on you, Mr. Bay.

  8. Despite being available only in French the first MI:4 trailer looks seriously badass. I am however shocked at the lack of Jeremy Renner in it. Considering he's taking over from here. Said to be attached to all TF3 prints next week.

  10. So obviously haven't read the script... But I just watched the trailer for Alcatraz. So... There's this Island see. And somewhere on this island there's a way to make things disappear or appear. And on this island, people can "3 dimensionally" move through time. And there's like a mysterious group of people who can control this and... God, please just don't tell me there's a cork. It's kinda looking like they just took all the Dharma stuff from Lost and...

      I'm a fan of JJ's. I just wish he'd stay more involved with his projects and if he can't, then he shouldn't do them. He's a great storyteller. If he'd been able to stay involved with Lost, it would've been a much better final season.....sigh....

  11. Wow, it's a very slow month for specs. Plenty going out, but hard to get a hold of any.

      kLo -- great profile pic. At least QT's hit on TB. thank god....i'd take 1 QT to a 100 of the same specs we were getting....but yes, things did slow.....

      Of course, back when that happened, no one knew how bad Indy IV was gonna be.

      Idiot. That's like the guy who stole the Indy IV script and tried to sell it at a hotel on the Sunset Strip where he was met by the FBI.

      I am a former Sciptapalooza TV semi-finalist. It is good to have on your CV since people know it. But it isn't like I had offers pouring in after or anything. So it's cool and legit -- but the floodgates wont open if you place.

      Sounds like the right choice then -- getting parked in development hell is no fun.

      Although we don't know what happened, I feel bad for the writer in this situation. Seems as if it'll get set-up somewhere else though.

      Looks good to me but haven't seen it yet. Is Cate Blanchett the female Liam Neeson, lol? Or at least the heir apparent to Jodie Foster?

  19. Love how they're doing a Child's Play remake, but keeping the logline under wraps. Gee, I'm on pins and needles to find out what it might be about.

      We should do revisionist fairy tale horror -- Michael Myers plays Prince Charming. Annie Wilkes as the wicked witch. Featuring Hannibal Lecter as Gandalf. We can call it "Serial Killer Theater".

      That's cuz it's called "Chucky and Snow White vs. Zombie Robots directed by Michael Bay 3D."

      Definitely want to see it but wondering if it's going to be good. So far, this year hasn't had much to offer. Friends outside the industry -- just regular moviegoers -- have been complaining they want to go to the theater -- but there's nothing they want to see.
