NOTES FOR "DON'T STOP DANCING" MICHAEL JACKSON BIOPIC

Image
I've spent my week-end making notes for "DON'T STOP DANCING" the Michael Jackson's biopic that I'm currently co-writing with Gary Revel who is also the movie producer.
I have just turned down a science fiction project to be directed by Mark Hammil to focus on this project.

UPDATE: Today June 19, 2012. I have completed a first draft of the movie outline.  Gary Level and I are due to start co-writing the script in July and it's a great honor to be part of a project that will pay homage to one my biggest idols, an artist who really marked my life and who will keep on inspiring me during all my creative activities.

More news to come soon...

DON'T STOP DANCING
The life, music and career of Michael Jackson Screenplay in Works by Gary Revel and Jordan Tate

Entertainment News June 10, 2012
Temple, TX USA


DON'T STOP DANCING, the true story of the life, music and career of Michael Jackson based on Gary Revel's personal story beginning in the early 1990s. With requests coming to Gary from his clients to make public the true story of how Michael Jackson was able to achieve the success he had in the music business, Gary started asking questions. One thing led to another and soon he was engaged in a full scale investigation into the life, music and career of Michael Jackson.
You've heard 'truth is stranger than fiction' but in the case of MJ truth and fiction were so tightly wound together that it was impossible to see the difference daylight between them. However, it did not take long for Gary to find that there was truth that could be found about the launching of Michael's career and it wasn…

TERRY GILLIAM...QUOTES OF A GENIUS

"The reason why I don't watch as many as I used to is that I'm not surprised any more. I loved movies because they opened up doors into worlds I never imagined. It seldom happens now."
Terry Gilliam
Comment: Mr. Gilliam, I agree with you so much, I remember watching so many films when I was a child, of course it influenced my decision of becoming a screenwriter and being part of the film industry. Now, it's very rare for me to 
say "I want to see this film". 
Dream has died a long time ago in the film industry. Hope it will reborn soon...


Hollywood is run by small-minded people who like chopping the legs off creative people. All they want to do is say no.
Terry Gilliam 

The [Hollywood] studio's mentality is that Americans are stupid. They try to lower the standard as much as they can to reach what they think is this great dumb audience. And I have always resisted that and wanted to believe in the audience's intelligence. But if you keep feeding p…

BRAZIL-SCIENCE FICTION GEM

Image
Terry Gilliam's Brazil is a MUST SEE for science fiction lovers.

A twists-packed gem by Terry Gilliam mixing romance, dreams, action, comedy...One of the best and most imaginative screenplays ever written.
I remember how impressed I was the very first time I saw this movie when as a small child. Especially because of the romanticism of the story (the leading male character dreams of a beautiful blond woman and finally  meets her in real life)  and now, as an adult I can see it's a genius piece of work with an unique universe.

Simply beautiful.

Fear Itself opening credits

Image
The opening credits of the excellent horror TV show: Fear itself. Actually a collection of horror short films directed by the best scary movies directors.
I don't want TV much, because of the lack of talent an imagination in most TV programms but I enjoy this show that reminds me of "tales from the crypt", a series that has been a great source of inspiration to me.
And actually these short films are very similar to my style in terms of horror shorts.

4 DAYS OFF...

4 days off to free my mind and relax and to go on developing my two new treatments
"Morgane" and "The haunted lodge".

A great pleasure to write movies that have the ability to make people dream...Dream is lacking in most movies today.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU...
