  1. At some point Oblivion had a different title, didn't it? Or am I making that up?

      they were calling it 'Horizons' for a while. Then changed it back to Oblivion like the graphic novel mentioned above.

    3. LeftyJones


      Yeah, I was wrong there. It did change names for a bit. Good looking out Anti hero

      That's what I thought. Thanks.

  2. The waiting is the hardest part.

      Every day you get one more yard, you take it on faith, you take it to the heart...

  3. Sorkin's description of the structure for his Steve Jobs script sounds interesting.

      There's so many great moments from the Steve Jobs biography that will be missed. Jobs' birth father owned a restaurant that Jobs would eat at on occasion, and yet neither man knew who the other was. Bill Gates visiting Jobs on his death bed, both men playing nice and then slagging each other off afterward...Jobs' denial of his horrid body odor, etc. Oh well, hopefully Sorkin has stumbled on something brilliant and it's not just an ego showcase of his theatrical dialogue.

      Agreed - it's like a mini-Rope, the Hitch movie that's 9 takes long


  4. Chan-wook Park to direct 'The Brigands Of Rattleborge'... Oh my...

  5. I'm curious. Do Agents and Managers truly despise a writer who sends an unsolicited logline query, or do they just funnel it to their trash w/out a second thought?

      Because most likely unsolicited material comes from random nut jobs and when said random nut job decides he wants to attach CAA to his lawsuit over "the fact" he came up with the concept of 2 guys in a plane first, so TOP GUN owes him $, if the assistant read it and had to testify saying so, it could potentially leave the agency liable. All the material they get is from their network of people who hopefully aren't nut jobs. Even when you subm...

      submit to say a CAA they make you sign a 5 page release absolving them from any liability.

      Er, I should have known. That makes sense. I haven't heard much about that dumbass who thought the best way to advance his screenwriting career was to sue everyone in Hollywood for discriminating against him. Wonder how his career is going...

  6. I need to accept the fact that no matter how many times a new Van Helsing project is announced, Anthony Hopkins will not be reprising his role.

    1. sangun


      And neither will Peter Cushing.

      Ha ha. #bramstokersdraculaowns @coppola

      Hopkins is still alive, hence my disappointment with his exclusion. Should Cushing find a way to rise from the dead, I would hope for his reprisal as well.

  7. Reading all these casting updates/rumors for "Out of the Furnace" and all I can think is, 'Is that really a better title than "Low Dweller"?

      Dan -- it's not a rewrite... It's literally an entirely different script. New locale, new names, new story... The very basic plot of brother looking for revenge is there. But that doesn't even kick in until midpoint. WHY they didn't just have Cooper write an "original" instead of paying for all the attachments to Low Dweller makes zero sense.

      Out of the Furnace: The untold story of Hansel and Gretel. Also, Burbs 2.

  8. I think it's funny that the logline for Worst. Honeymoon. Ever. is being kept under wraps.

    1. admin


      Brian said he sent a bunch in, but the reps just wanted to say "Read the title" when asked what it was about... so there you have it.

  9. so, I guess I'm the only one who didn't like X-Men...

      I haven't seen it yet, but I suspect if it's anything like the other 4 movies it'll be shit.

      Movie was alllllllll good -- saw it twice...

    4. mrferrone


      I didn't like it at all either...

      haha. first draft... excellent!

  11. likes how this Sorkin pilot is taking shape

  12. Diane Lane is Martha Kent. Martha Kent is a MILF. Has Charlie Sheen sent us all into a bizarro universe?

  13. A Bodyguard remake is really what the world has been missing.

      I hope it's the opening of TAKEN, but stretched out over 100 minutes of Liam Neeson kicking ass.

      That's defffffffffff what they're going for Blue!


    4. brian


      Liam Neeson and Holly Valance! That would be great.

  14. loved The Never Land

    1. mebishop2001


      Me too. Enjoyed a lot more than SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN. This story felt very similar to THE MATRIX with the "you are the Chosen One" vibe.

    2. Bodhi1701


      If you liked it, check out Captain Hook vs. Wonderland....

  15. I thought X was a good read, but the more I think about it, the more things I find frustrating about it.
