This Is Not the Film You Are Looking For

Hey, look. It’s the rejection letter that United Artists sent to George Lucas about some movie he wanted to make called “The Star Wars.” What do you think ever happened to that script?


228 Days till Production Begins

Just sent the latest version of the Sympathy Pains script, all 116 pages of it, to my lead actor and department heads (Hi, Scott! – I have so few readers, I know them by name!). This is the first time everyone will be reading the full script.

Man, is that a difficult thing to do – to put it out there as if it’s something anyone would want to read. There’s this weird thrill/dread that accompanies hitting the “send” button. I’m excited for people to see it – I think there’s a lot of good stuff in there, but there’s also the ridiculous fear of “what if it just flat out sucks?” I just sent everyone that I’m asking to give me months of their time something that they may completely hate.

At the moment, the thrill part is winning, and this is fun. Maybe I’ll post again when the dread kicks back in.

I sent the script at about 4pm, it’s 8pm now, and I’ve already made the first small change…
