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.

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

The whole point of high concept is that everyone knows what it is because it's an easy to understand premise. So if you hear a premise and see the movie already in your head, that's high...

Re: Developement Notes and Chain-Of-Title

Re: High Concept vs New High Concept

Re: New to forums -- Comedy specific manager recommendations?

Welcome.

No managers or agents want submissions. But they will read email queries "Will you read my comedy script?" and then if they say yes, then you send it off.

It's funny you mentioned Bill and Ted 3 and I guess this is first time you heard of it and meanwhile I've
