I Can Has Script?
So here's the deal. I've been harassing writers for scripts. Why? Well, because we need to make some movies after this one is done. But I keep getting static like: "Aren't you working on a movie now?" Yes, I'm working on a movie right now. But I won't be working on a movie in about 5 months and then what? Should I sit around for half a year while we think of an idea for a movie, come up with a treatment, and then write a script?
Why are we insisting on not making movies?
The fact is that all the big studios have stopped hiring feature writers and have stockpiled films in anticipation of a variety of strikes. That means that there should be less product out there starting in maybe 6 months to 1 year.
And you will just be thinking about a movie you want to make.
I want to be finishing it.
And starting the next one.
