Re: Developement Notes and Chain-Of-Title

Honestly, I think it helped JZ get more clients and become a bigger name. That's how I see it. I don't think you get cancelled for having a thread on slug lines.

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

New idea to me. Thought setup was still good, just needs a twist. Something me and Jeff have said and others too.

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

Did anyone mention that The Dead Zone was a Stephen King novel first before being made in a movie? So that 2012 novel ripped that off that.

Also how much time passes for you in terms of thinking of idea and writing new idea once it has not been killed?

I noticed all the scripts I've had success with, I had idea and...

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

Welcome! Many of those films are by established filmmakers though vs me or you writing a spec trying to get them to read it. But I hear you.

Re: New Ideas

Horror for sure -- I mean yes!!!!

I don't know if there's a full movie, but a biker gang movie is long overdue. I'm thinking of STONE COLD as the last one I can think of. Comedy version WILD HOGS.
