Default Re: I've got a movie coming out this week!

So here's the story.

I wrote a spec called SOLO back in 2007, which was basically Blue Lagoon meets Misery. It was optioned a few times over the years and was a good sample for me (it's how I got staffed on Scream). Then an exec at a company who had optioned it years ago mentioned it to Blumhouse during a random conversation. The exec at Blumhouse remembered reading and liking it back in 2007. He revisited, and they made an offer. After that, it was really out of my hands, because BH is a director's playground. The director did significant rewrites and went off to Malaysia to shoot it. When the Star Wars SOLO movie came out, this project was changed to PREY. We ended up going to arbitration for writing credit, and the result was a shared "Written By".

Oh wow! Nice! I am not sure if it will be in theaters near me, but if not I will definitely watch it when it comes out on dvd/streaming.

FWIW-

I like PREY much more than SOLO.

SOLO could be about a lone hiker. WILD could have been titled SOLO. Yet WILD is, for me, a more fierce title than SOLO.

Whereas WILD could not have been titled PREY. PREY is more sinister.

I think you guys made the right choice regardless of the reasoning.

I love it when old "dead" projects come back to life!
