Final Thanks

For simplicity’s sake I want to say thanks to everyone who sent along those scripts I asked to see on Wednesday, and to list them all once again: Fair Game, Dave Eggers & Vendela Vida‘s Away We Go (for Sam Mendes), Noah Baumbach‘s Greenberg, Jason Reitman‘s Up In The Air, The Human Factor (the Clint Eastwood Mandela film), Imperial Life in the Green Zone, James Schamus‘s Taking Woodstock, Peter Straughan‘s The Men Who Stare At Goats, Brothers, untitled Nancy Meyers (the Meryl Streep movie), Amelia, a faded 2007 draft of Shutter Island, The Informant, The Lovely Bones, Hot Tub Time Machine, David O. Russell and Kristin Gore‘s Nailed, Jonah Hill, Matt Spicer & Max Winkler’s The Adventurer’s Handbook, and Joel and Ethan Coen‘s A Serious Man.

    Just sent you another.

    Fair Game needs a new title. I can’t read it without thinking of the Billy Baldwin-Cindy Crawford turd from the mid-90s.

    Fair Game. A film by Andrew Sipes. Who never made another feature film again.

    Has Hollywood cracked down on scripts leaking out to the general public in the last ten or fifteen years? I have memories of visiting Manhattan as a kid, and those guys selling movie scripts on the sidewalk would have all kinds of cool shit that hadn’t come out yet. I also remember a guy coming to our college and getting Titanic, Saving Private Ryan, The Truman Show, The Game etc. etc before they came out as actual films.

    Now if you check out the guys selling scripts on the street in NYC, it’s all old shit that’s come out already – Pulp Fiction, The Matrix, Fight Club, whatever. Boring.

    Imperial Life in the Green Zone

    Is that what they’re calling it now? They’re just combining the two titles?

    Looks like the studios think we have enough money to buy a new video format each year. From The Digital Bits:

    “In news around the Net, Video Business has a good story up today on Panasonic’s efforts to launch 3-D in the home market, tied to their involvement with the production of James Cameron’s Avatar. The film will be presented in 3-D in theatres next year, and the plan is for Panasonic to launch 3-D ready HDTV displays and Blu-ray players later in 2010, just in time for the home video release.”
