Granted, none of those (including Khan, but for a different reason) demand that a film be written about them, but they all can't be winners. One more click, and... There you go: Lillian Lorraine. She can be the subject of a movie.
And that's the best part about the "Random Article" link: It's random.
So what does that have to do with the script I'm looking to write in June? Since I assume anyone reading this blog has at least average intelligence (at the minimum, of course), I'm sure it's obvious that I can thank Wikipedia's "Random Article" for giving me the impetus of June's script.
So: What did Wikipedia offer up?
|This is probably the most working title title I've ever come up with.|
|This bus is going to Cleveland.|
There's a joke there but it seems too easy.
Anyhow, that's really neither here nor there right now: I've gotta write the script first then re-write it so it sings. And maybe then get it to Michael Shannon. See that there? Optimism.
I'm excited about this script -- which is good, I suppose, since it's still about 40 days until I get to it -- and have high hopes for it. I'm seeing it as a very low-budget affair, something I could easily produce on my own. If I'd be able to find a bus to shoot it. Hey, you never know, right?
On a somewhat off-topic note, I should be wrapping up the Standers script by the end of the weekend. It's definitely coming up a lot shorter page-wise than I had even re-evaluated it being. I'm guessing it's going to hit 70 to 75 pages. Not too bad since much of the execution of the film is going to rely on establishing the mood of the story. Something that only takes a quick sentence in the script could end up being 30 seconds to a minute of screen time, so in the end, when filmed, it should be able to reach an acceptable runtime of 90 or so minutes. Slap on lengthy opening and closing credits (a la most of the Final Destination sequels) and everything should be roses.
See that again? More optimism.
And now I'll quit while I'm ahead.
