Sundralicious


Dreamworks is developing a live-action Ghost in the Shell.

Who said it, Kanye or Hitler? Yeah. I know. From Garfunkle and Oats.



Via Jason Birdsall "Rockfish":


For those of you who have broken down scripts before you probably know this annoyance: Final Draft (or virtually any other screenwriting program) knows who speaks in a scene, but it has no freakin' clue as to who is actually in the scene. That makes the scene report all but useless. It's good for page counts I suppose but when you have action scenes your page count doesn't really reflect reality anyway...

I have a 79 page script. I know that's too short, it's just the way it works out. Perhaps some of the fight scenes will last longer. I dunno. That's certainly my guess though. I have 89 scenes. If it were up to me I'd do a 20-day shoot. That sure would make the fight scenes easier to photograph...

Oh, and I also have a lead character who's naked for something like the first 32 pages...

I have a scifi script where all of the characters are naked for the first 15 pages - ya beat me.

I dunno -- maybe 2 characters for 15 pages beats one for 30. We'll have to check the Rules Committee to see how this all works... ;-)

Actually seven.

I still give you the kudos - until I do the rewrite.

Great site

Thanks! Good luck on adding more pictures of naked people!
