Feeling extremely sad for Tony Curtis

I loved this actor, i can still remember the 2 beautiful autographed pictures he sent me a few years ago.
I will miss his talent!

Arthur Penn

Director Arthur Penn (Bonnie and Clyde) passed away...I don't know if i'm going completely crazy, or if i'm losing my mind, but i'm certain i have heard of this news in the past. 2 years ago, someone told me Arthur Penn had died, a few weeks ago, i read this on the internet too, and today his death is announced again...Strange story.

THRILLER (MICHAEL JACKSON) LYRICS

The lyrics of the legendary song by Michael Jackson, still a great source of inspiration for me.
Jordan.

************************************************

It's close to midnight and something evil's lurking in the dark
Under the moonlight, you see a sight that almost stops your heart
You try to scream but terror takes the sound before you make it
You start to freeze as horror looks you right between the eyes
You're paralyzed

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
And no one's gonna save you from the beast about strike
You know it's thriller, thriller night
You're fighting for your life inside a killer, thriller tonight

You hear the door slam and realize there's nowhere left to run
You feel the cold hand and wonder if you'll ever see the sun
You close your eyes and hope that this is just imagination, girl!
But all the while you hear the creature creeping up behind
You're out of time

'Cause this is thriller, thriller night
There ain't no s…

September updates

A quick update on what i've been up to:
Back from my summer break, i've started to promote my new French thriller screenplay "L'ASSISTANT".
Got a few requests from well known production companies in Paris, and a very beautiful review from a well known french actress, who really loved the script, i asked her to recommend my work to her professional contacts when she ever gets the chance, i'm also on the hunt for an artistic agent in Paris for this project, as well as for my upcoming French script: "Laperouse" adventure story revolving around the famous navigator, and a thriller which i will start to write in October.

At the moment- I'm working on the finale draft of my science fiction screenplay "THE FACE", which was constantly postponed due to my writing assignments and various occupations.
Currently, my  goal is to go back to my roots: Hitchockian thrillers, science fiction and fantasy.

Thanks for reading! Jordan.

TRES BEAU COMPLIMENT D'UNE TRES GRANDE ACTRICE FRANCAISE

Voici le très beau compliment que je viens de recevoir d'une très grande actrice française qui a prit le temps de lire mon scénario "L'ASSISTANT".

"J’ai trouvé votre scénario très bien écrit et captivant. Je n’ai pas décroché une seconde . L’idée est très bien traitée."

C'est un très beau compliment à recevoir de la part de quelqu'un que l'on admire, et qui a fait une si grande carrière (et qui a du lire un bon paquet de scénariis). Je suis donc très honorée, et confiante pour le futur!

WERNER SYNDROME: THE FACE

I've recently completed the first draft of a science fiction screenplay called "the face", a second draft should be in the work in 2010/2011. The screenplay will take place in a near future-post 2012, in a society where aging and death have been eradicated through science. Time travel will also be part of the plot.
One of the characters of the script suffers a premature aging syndrome: I chose the Werner Syndrome. During my many researches, I’ve read terrible articles on this condition, and saw very shocking pictures of people suffering this horrible decease, including men and women with full head of white hairs at only 47! 30 years old people suffering the common symptoms associated with aging.Is there something worst than a decease that steals your youth from you?
Jordan.
PS: Personally, I do think that the cure that supposedly do not exist, do exist and have been hidden from humanity by political and religious powers. Aren’t you surprised by such an important absence…

FELL FOR ALEJANDRO

Image
Even if I’m one of those who disliked her recent « meat dress » (disgusting), I actually fell for ALEJANDRO, Lady Gaga’s latest and amazing song!  I've been listening to it all summer!
Lady Gaga's Alejandro lyrics below:



I know that we are young and I know that you may love me
But I just can’t be with you like this anymore, Alejandro

She’s got both hands in her pockets
And she won’t look at you, won’t look at you
She hides true love, en su bolsillo
She’s got a halo around her finger around you

You know that I love you, boy
Hot like Mexico, rejoice
At this point I gotta choose
Nothing to lose

Don’t called my name, don’t called my name, Alejandro
I’m not your babe, I’m not your babe, Fernando
Don’t wanna kiss, don’t wanna touch
Just smoke my cigarette and hush
Don’t called my name, don’t called my name, Roberto

Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro
Alejandro, Alejandro
Ale-Alejandro, Ale-Alejandro

Stop please, just let me go
Alejandro, just let me …

Mes projets en Français

Outre, "l’assistant"- je termine actuellement la rédaction de LAPEROUSE- Une aventure romancée autour du célèbre navigateur disparu, je commencerai prochainement la rédaction d’un autre thriller Hitchcockien, pour lequel je recherche toujours le titre parfait.

L'ASSISTANT- UN HALETANT THRILLER HITCHCOCKIEN

Deux grosses maisons de production françaises, ont demandé une copie de mon scénario L'ASSISTANT- Ils semblaient très enthusiastes. "L'assistant" n'est que le premier d'une longue série de scripts en Français.
