That’s how many treatments/outlines I’m working on at the moment, all for feature films.
There’s this vampire/Nazi thing which became a witch/Nazi thing which has become a creature midway between the two, but is still sexy.#
A sequel to an already produced horror film.
A slacker comedy thing set in a record shop.
Not that the others aren’t/weren’t fun, but Terry’s a really funny guy and is very adept at telling a good story. He’s an interesting guy and his book’s a good read – I’m hoping I can do it justice by making it a good script.
Of these four treatments, all four have a reasonable chance of getting made. All four people/companies have a track record of getting things done, all of them are easy to get on with, all of them just want to make films without fannying around.
Well, without much fannying around. There’s always going to be a little bit or it wouldn’t be the film industry. There are several other projects I’m not including in this list, because most of the people involved are more interested in arranging lunches than making films.†
Okay, so none of these projects might happen (or, if I can’t deliver the goods, they may happen without me); but they’re all exciting and things I think could really work.
Looks like the next few months are going to be very busy, and life doesn’t get any better than that.‡
# A wimpire? Vamtch?
* Okay, Jonathan Sothcott was there and he’s fun too. He gets upset if I don’t mention him.
† If you’re reading this, it’s not you. I’m talking about someone else.
‡ Actually, life is much better than that; but that’s got nothing to do with writing and doesn’t belong here.
