Re: You're a producer, fo realz???

I understand the situations you mention, and that's indeed completely and utterly a**h**ish behavior. Such d**k moves. Problem is, you don't even have to look into the film industry to come across...

Re: You're a producer, fo realz???

Completely understand this. But you know what's even worse? What's flat out and quite simply utterly disgusting?

When the prod says "Not for me, but if you got anything else you want to send in, do...

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

P.S.:

Those are all different from the source material. The elements you mention are not the same when comparing the original McCall to the movie. "Badass that worked for the government and comes...

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

An interesting deconstruction, even though I don't agree with it. The plot is what the writer makes of it, the way the writer executes it.

McCall, who was basically a riff on a retired Bond (Lazenby...

I'm glad that you continue to cherry-pick whatever you feel like to your own convenience.

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

I've been stating that I agree with the OP from the beginning. But what you did was cherry-pick excerpts from my posts and conveniently dismissed the rest. So of course you missed it.

And just so...

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

Sure, I'd rather have a white Brit for The Equalizer, so what?

You're saying that I have a "problem with blackness" - as you put it, just because I'd rather have a white Brit playing a character...

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

Many people dislike the change in a character's race just as much as they would dislike a blonde Superman or Tony Stark or Bruce Wayne or Wonder Woman or Mary Jane Watson. Saying one is prejudiced...

The other points you bring up, I've already addressed them in my previous posts.

Concerning the OP's post, nope, not what I see written at all. Simply someone who's disapointed with the changes...

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

So changing from white to black is okay, but not from black to white?

Isn't that just as racist?

Just because a character is white, that doesn't automatically make me identify with the character...

Re: The Equalizer - groan!

I call bulls**t on a lot of posts here. I wonder how people would react if they made someone like Blade a white person.

In the case of Shaft, the race is important to the character. But the days of...

Re: Blood boiling after meeting, advice please!

Agree with the above.

Writers tend to get easily swept by enticing words and smooth and cheery talk.

They don't actually own it. Don't be a dormat to those people.

Out of curiosity - what did...

When a person changes from a manager to another, how does that work? By that, I'm asking, what does it imply, in terms of the work that was done and/or optioned and/or sold and/or altered according...

I understand your point, but I still deeply disagree with it. After all, each with his/her own opinion, based on each one's personal experience, such as my case.

Still, it's overly extreme to draw a...

Maybe the "producers" who do this act the same way when it comes to paying the plumber, or the electrician, or the dry cleaners, or a restaurant, or the cleaning lady.

Thanks for the encouragement, Ed, as well as everybody that has chipped in.

Your first sentence sums up why I posted this question. That's exactly the case.

On those 2 other projects, I only know about the one that seems to have been completed. I take it he'll move to the...

I know what he's been up to.

Thing is, he didn't even try after he had the polished and revised script in his hands, not even after the approval of other people involved. He didn't even try to shop...

We exchanged emails every now and then. Not anymore.

Haven't watched this one yet. It was going to be IMAX or nothing (wll, or DVD). I'll wait for the DVD.

Is this usual/normal?

So, an actor/stuntman with his own very small prodco, after having read two crappy action scripts I wrote, decided to hire me to turn a basic concept of his into a full script.
