How Does He Get All That Money?

I just watched the trailer for Roland Emmerich's "2012"

[scrippet]

INT. LUSH OFFICE - MONTAGE

Dark woods and stuffed leather... Roland Emmerich meets with a Really Rich Guy.

ROLAND
Hey how about a movie where aliens blow up cities?

REALLY RICH GUY
Okay Roland, here's the money.

ROLAND
Hey how about a movie where the weather blows up cities?

REALLY RICH GUY
Okay Roland, here's the money.

ROLAND
Hey how about a movie where an Ancient Mayan Prophecy blows up cities?

REALLY RICH GUY

ROLAND
Fives and Twenties, thanks. Oh and some change for the meter.

There's Someone on The Horizon...

And that someone is me. (Squints) At least I think it's me.

Yeah, it's been a while. Best way to descri-- no, *evoke* all these seasons, is some kinda cross-the-desert metaphor.

Dry sand, and baking sun.

New story in the works. We'll see how that comes along, but it shows.. solidity... and lots of room for growth...

A lot of work ahead, shaping it. Lots to do. But the idea has support. It's shootable on a low budget, while being grand and imaginative, too. And I can't tell you much more. (Well, except that I couldn't have come with it on my own. Not at all. There is a real and beautiful, Muse. )

New post soon.

I'd love for you to check out my T-shirt (or mug) for screenwriters.
