    Re: Merman

    Not having seen the logline, I'm assuming this is a biopic of Ethel Merman.

      LO!! No, it's a fish out of water story about a Merman who wants his Mermaid fiancee back, she ditched him for a man on dry land.

          I cant help but think of Zoolander on the few occasions I hear the term "Merman"...

            Well, there are those who say that Ethel Merman really was a man....

              Ask Ernie Borgnine, the well-known male impersonator and briefly husband to Ethel.

                  Damn! I guess I have to bail on the merman script I was in the process of outlining.

                  Though the logline for this script actually sounds better than the idea I had.

                    It's totally cool as well that it sold to Imagine with Brian Grazer producing, seeing as his big break-out film was SPLASH, about a merMAID.

                      Does she post on DD? If so, when can we start hounding her for details?

                        I think this idea sounds very doable, for lack of a better word. (I did want to say it's "high concept", but apparently that's no longer in vogue. )

                        I could really see this as a movie. It's a nice hat tip to "Splash", while still being fresh. Kind of has a "Roxanne" vibe too. RomComs are not really my thing, but I know potential when I see it.

                        Good luck.

                        Edit: Just caught Script Girls report. Congrats on the sale. I'd say having Grazer all over this - is pretty much is a guaranteed green light.
