So...yeah, I failed miserably to get to the page I wanted in this new screenplay I might shoot come November. I'm at page 56 right now. I sort of know what's going to happen in the other 15 or so pages, but I'd like to spice it up a bit--which is very hard to do when you're not sure of the exact location.
Whether I'm actually going to shoot this thing is really dependent on so many things coming together that it's more probably it won't happen.
- I have to make a lot of money at this convention I'm a guest at in two weeks.
- All of the actors who said they were in, back when I asked, have to be able to get off at the same time so we can do it.
- When I break this script down, I have to be confident we can shoot it in about 8 days.
- I have to know we can do the FX well.
- I have to get a costume for the "monster" made, as well as some other props.
Watched The Boys on Amazon. Lotta fun. Blew through it in two days.
Am rewatching Breaking Bad while I do stuff.
Got asked to do an interview for a book on killer clown movies. Also found that Shivers is featured as one of the top 20 scariest clowns in two different lists--one from Variety magazine. Links here:
Kinda cool, but Variety bags on the movie. Then again, so do I.
Began exposing my kid to some more movies I love. First was The Lost Boys, which he liked.
Next night was Predator. He seemed to like it, though he jumped pretty bad when they first discover the bodies in the jungle. And he thought there was some gross parts.
But then I asked him if he wanted to watch another movie right after, and he asked, "Another long movie?"
I say, "Do you think that was long?" and he says Yes.
I'm thinking...Avengers is fucking 3 hours long, and he watches that shit over and over. So I say "Hey, we can watch another movie or you can go do your thing, whatever you wanna do."
He says "I'm good" and goes upstairs. So there's no way to tell what he's really thinking. Too bad for him, I was gonna show him the original Clash of the Titans and there's boobs in that.
