I’m sick of the fetid crap that comes from Hollywood these days. Piss poor remakes and rehashed formulas that are drained of any life. Dumbed down scripts directed by MTV video guys make the already putrid mess worse.
It must be easy to generate a film these days all you need is a committee of execs who want to minimize costs and maximize profitability of a project. Just pick a demographic and find a way to pander to them to get them to watch a film.
Here is a little exercise. We are the execs… we’ve been handed a script by a young director who recently gained notoriety for pulling off a huge publicity stunt. His name is marketable so we will make him the director.
He has demanded full control but as execs we aren’t going to throw away money on something that is not a sure thing.
here is the outline of his movie:
After the death of a big time media mogul the press decide to find out the meaning of his last dying word. Through flashbacks we see his life and try to puzzle who this man really was.
Sounds boring… Ok committee let’s sex this turkey up so we can market and sell this… My first suggestion is that we aim for the summer so we need to make this a blockbuster.
