Star Wars Episode VII Treatment? Fan Fic? - posted by Don

Thanks Albert for the heads up on this. I agree with Albert, “I have NO IDEA if its genuine or fan-fic, but thought it was interesting. ”

This treatment found here: http://www.mediafire.com/view/?5kgcwy4cu91n2r5, is entitled, “Episode VII – An Immortal Legacy” and has Michael Arndt’s name on it.

I’m more inclined to believe this is a piece of fan-fic that someone has put Arndt’s name to to see how far it goes. The characters from the original trilogy have far too large a role in this treatment. Also, it reads exactly how I and a million other Star Wars fans would want the story to play out.

Talk about it on the discussion board.

Dante 01 - posted by Don

Just as the Bale scifi flick Equilibrium managed to slink quietly in and out of theatres before blowing out on DVD, Dante 01 is doing the same thing. Dante 01 was released early last year in Europe. Didn’t see a screen here in the states. Odd, considering this was written and directed by Marc Caro, who wrote and directed the cult classic The City of Lost Children

It just dropped on DVD today. You can ‘Flix it.

Here is the Synopsis:

DANTE 01:
At the edge of the galaxy, drifts Dante 01, a hellish space station designed to contain and study the worst of the criminally insane. After an unidentified mute inmate arrives on the ship, he begins to reveal frightening alien powers, and both captives and crew must decide whether he’s a monster or a Messiah.

From the acclaimed co-director of the post-apocalyptic The City of Lost Children, Dante 01 is a “visually riveting” (Lisa Nesselson, Variety) epic that takes sci-fi films to a whole new dimension.

Check out the trailer. Note: it is in French and there are boobies at the 26 second mark, so don’t get all freaky on me, ok?

Stranger Things – Episode 02A: Sins of the Mother - posted by Don

Stranger Things – Episode 02B: Sins of the Mother - script- from: StrangerThings.tv

After an unsuspecting patient fails a background check, a second-year intern is forced to make a difficult decision…

First watch the episode, then read the script (annotated in pdf format).

Sins of the Mother is the episode of StrangerThings that really cemented my love affair with Earl and the folks behind StrangerThings. This is where the acting, production values and the story really came together to tell a story that surpasses not only Earl’s previous works, but just about anything that has come out of short speculative television in the last few years. Earl and the StrangerThings team hit their stride on Sins of the Mother and carry it through on the next episode, One of those Faces.

Monkey Bones Script, Writer’s Strike and What I’ve been reading - posted by Don

Thanks to Leon for the heads up on the lastest over on Daily ScriptMonkeybone. This is a February 3, 1999 seventh draft by Sam Hamm (based on the comic book ‘Dark Town’ by Kaja Blackley and Vanessa Chong). Sam Hamm has written, in my opinion, some of the best unproduced scripts out there. A quick search of Sam Hamm in the Script Search shows he’s written unproduced sequel to Batman, as well as Planet of the Apes and Watchmen. Monkeybone, which came out in 2001, is about a cartoonist who finds himself trapped within his own underground creation and must find a way to get back, while racing against his popular but treacherous character, Monkeybone. The film starred Brendan Fraser and Bridget Fonda. Check it out over on the Movie Scripts page.

Thanks to “Tierney Cat” for his insightful posting on the discussion board on a breakdown of what a WGA writer might typically earn. I think this sums it up pretty well, I’m on strike for the future of my union, for my health insurance and my pension. Right now, it’s sadly not about the writing which I love but about the business of writing which always plays like black comedy. Check out the rest of his post here.

I’ve just finished listening to Bill DeSmedt’s Singularity and thought I’d share. You can listen to the book over at Podiobooks.com. You don’t gotta have an MP3 player to hear the story. You can listen to it right on your computer.

On June 30, 1908, there was a massive explosion near the Podkamennaya Tunguska River. It was called the Tunguska Event. The explosion felled an estimated 80 million trees over 830 square miles. Yes, it was a big boom. Against this back drop, Bill DeSmedt’s Singularity weaves a present day tale of an astrophysicist, a rookie agent and an analyst who unearth a scheme to capture the submicroscopic black hole that caused the Tunguska Event and use its awesome power to transform the world. If you enjoy Tom Clancy and Michael Crichton you will dig this taut, fast-paced thriller. It is well read by the author – voices and all with plausible near future science and technology.
