On Christmas Eve I was lying on the sofa, barely in phase with reality whilst watching a film I think can best be described as a ‘pile of shit’.
Possibly a ‘steaming pile of shit’ I’m not sure.
Anyway, in the midst of wondering who got paid to write this crap and why – I had the idea. The BIG idea. The big budget, Hollywood only, guaranteed money-maker and permanent position on the all-time favourites list idea.
It’s a great idea, an amazing idea and a weirdly obvious idea which I can’t really believe no one else has ever thought of.
It’s one of those high-concept ideas which once you’ve had the initial spark just unravels into a complete film. So complete in fact I was instantly able to pitch it to Mandy in it’s entirety.
I had to wake her up first, which didn’t go down to well – but once she’d stopped swearing at me I think she enjoyed it.
So now I have it – the BIG idea. The one we’re all searching for. I have it. Me.
Unfortunately I haven’t got time to write it for at least several months and I’m fairly certain someone else will get there first.
Expect me to be claiming I had the idea first when the film premieres in a few years time.
