hyperion: the movie?

Holy Crap. I guess this isn’t news… this project has been in the works for years, it turns out. But somehow it wasn’t on my radar. The Hyperion Cantos, one of the most amazing, brilliant, Literary works of science fiction known to mankind, is being adapted to film by Warner Brothers. Hyperion Hyperbole, you say?[…]

write club screenplay challenge

There’s a new blog in town… Write Club Screenplay Challenge is a simple little blog that sets up mini-challenges for screenwriters. It’s like one of those 48-hour filmmaker’s challenges, but you don’t have to make a whole movie. You just have to write it. The site is designed to offer motivation to get writers to[…]

ron jeremy's one eyed monster

In a darkly comic homage to “Alien” and “The Thing”, the cast and crew of an adult film, stranded in a blizzard, must band together against a mysterious and deadly alien, which has possessed the actor with the biggest part–Ron Jeremy (naturally). Now, with the monster on a killing spree, the race is on to[…]

coen brothers "a serious man" trailer and script

The trailer for the Coen Brothers new film “A Serious Man” has been released… …and the script is available at their site (pdf). God I love these guys. Big, sloppy fawning unmitigated man-love these guys. When you look at a list of their projects — Blood Simple, Raising Arizona, Barton Fink, Miller’s Crossing, Fargo, The[…]

Yup, it’s true. We’ve already got one script being considered by a reputable production company. Now we”ve got two irons in the fire. Grampa Was A Superhero is being looked at by a production company in the Midwest… East… Southeast… Hell, I don’t know. Where’s Tennessee? Anyway, the producer has a string of recognizable titles[…]

FOLLOW UP: I’ve seen the movie. Here’s my review. Stumbled across this series of clips today from the low budget sci fi actioner “Enigma” from The Shumway Brothers* and Frontier Studios.

yard sale – short film, one shot

I was directed to this film by somebody on IndieClub. I believe it’s the result of one of those 24 or 48 hour film challenges. Now it’s not long on story (it’s essentially dependent on a twisty), but it is long on good performance, production value and creativity. NOTE that the whole film is one[…]

robo geisha

Just thought this was awesome(ly hilarious). Tarantino, eat yer heart out. This is what you wanted Kill Bill to be! Not quite certain why the buildings bleed. Does the machine girl have a dildo on her nose? Interesting to see that the word “transform” hasn’t been trademarked by Michael Bay. Also interesting that boob guns[…]

Faeries: prodco request

A minor new development in the ongoing story of our feature horror script “Faeries“. Thanks to a lead from InkTip, the logline and synopsis were submitted to a Canadian production company with some solid success in the creature feature genre. They’ve asked to read the script, which in our book is a success. Obviously no[…]
