THE MOVIES THAT INSPIRED ME...THE BIRD WITH THE CRYSTAL PLUMAGE

Image
I first discovered Dario Argento's work when watching Television, a channel was airing horror movies I was a teenager and I first stumbled on "Inferno", one of his most terrifying films, I discovered the bird with he crystal plumage a few days later, and I believe it is my favorite Argento's films, very Hitchcockian, for those who know my work, I believe "the bird"...has unconsciously influenced my writing on my thriller "Mystification".



THE MOVIES THAT INSPIRED ME...KING KONG

Image
Needless to say, all people who know me and my work, know I've been wanting to work in the film busines since the very first time I saw King Kong on television, I was 6 years old and it was Jessica Lange's version. I saw Merian Cooper's classic a little later, and then Peter Jackson's one in 2005. And, I love them all. A few years later, I wrote "THE ADVENTURER" my Merian Cooper's biopic screenplay that I'm currently pitching and hope to see on the screen soon.
Thanks for reading and enjoy the pictures of these memorable films. Jordan.

Before her death by drowning in 1981, Natalie Wood eerily spoke of her fear of the water and her relationship with husband Robert Wagner.

And E! News has exclusively obtained audio and video footage from famed Hollywood columnist Shirley Eder, a close friend of Wood and Wagner, who interviewed the couple in 1977 at their home, and then sat down with Wood again in 1979. Eder died in 2005.

With Wood's daughter, Natasha Gregson, playing piano in the background, the three-time Oscar nominee and Wagner opened up about love the second time around.

"I'm sure glad it all worked out," Wagner said, smiling. He and Wood were first married from 1957 to 1962, and then again from 1972 until her death on Nov. 28, 1981. They had one daughter together, Courtney, during their second union.

When Eder asked if they still fought about the same things as they h…

UPDATE ON MERIAN COOPER BIOPIC: THE ADVENTURER

Image
I've pitched my MERIAN COOPER BIOPIC SCREENPLAY "THE ADVENTURER" to the agent of a well-known actor and they both sound very interested in getting onboard when the project is funded.
They are extremely thrilled about this biopic and asked me to keep in touch with them to know the progresses of the project.
For those who don't know Merian Cooper is the creator of KING KONG
My screenplay is a chronicle of soldier, adventurer and film maker Merian Cooper and the real lives experiences that inspire him his most famous character King Kong.

"L'ASSISTANT" LA VALSE DES REALISATEURS

Image
En plus de promouvoir mes nombreux scénarii Américains, je me consacre également à la promo de mon scénario de thriller français L'ASSISTANT, l'histoire d'une écrivain et de son assistant diabolique dont elle s'inspire malgré le danger.

C'est un scénario Hitchcockien et palpitant, dont la plupart des lecteurs, selon leurs dires, ne peuvent se défaire sans avoir vu le mot "Fin".


Je contacte actuellement plusieurs réalisateurs pour mettre ce projet en route, car j'ai beaucoup de bons contacts avec de grands acteurs du cinéma Français qui sont intéressés par ce scénario, beaucoup sont entré en contact directement avec moi et je n'ai pas été déçue par la courtoisie et le professionnalisme de ces artistes, je pense que quelque chose de bien en découlera, d'autant que le cinéma français manque de bons thrillers. Non?

Quand aux réalisateurs, je n'ai toujours pas trouvé ma perle rare. La réalisatrice Charlotte Brandstrom a adoré le scénario mais ell…

10 things to think about when you option your script

SCRIPT OPTION AGREEMENTS: USEFUL TIP FOUND ONLINE FOR SCREENWRITERS

When anyone with access to MONEY wants to option your script, YES, you should expect money HOWEVER...

There's a huge scam going on in Smell-A right now that you need to be aware of...

A producer comes in and options your work... Let's say the option is for $5K a year for 2 or 3 years... You get your first year's payment and you're a happy camper because a fairly well-known producer is shopping your script around...

Unbeknownst to you, the producer sells your screenplay to a prodco for $250K... The deal THEY have is to buy the script outright but if NO FILM is made within a specified timeframe, all rights revert back to YOU, the screenwriter.

By the time that happens, your script has been passed around and it's agreed on that it's not that bad but still needs some polish but the prodco doesn't have enough time to make that happen... Hence, the script and all rights are now yours but since the producer you sold the option to has already made $250K, nobody wants t…

How to Tell An Amateur

EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS DAY

I declare today EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS DAY.

Let's imagine a world where each illness could be cured through advanced science, let's imagine a world where the word "death" will be part of another dark time, let's imagine a world where aging, pain, cancer, death and tears won't exist anymore...

Let's imagine a world where LIFE will be  a REAL LIFE.


LET'S ACT FOR THIS WORLD TO EXIST thanks to ADVANCED SCIENCE. Thanks to the use of EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS for the good of humanity, of your children, your parents, your friends, your lovers, and your animals.

Let’s imagine a world where your children won’t age and die in a few decades,
Lets imagine a world where you’ll be able to go on living and see your children going on living, a world where you won’t be separated from the people you love.

We all deserve eternity because no one was made  to die.

LET'S ACT TODAY. GET INFORMED AND SPREAD THE WORD:

LET'S SPREAD THESE WORDS: EMBRYONIC STEM CELLS.
