    Re: Darn you, Tom Hanks!

    Ah... sure my management team. We're having tea right now. Buffy was bad though, and Hilde started to spank her, but her arm fell off.



    Anyways. We're going to need mech suits too. Most people don't know that the Wright brothers invented mech suits.

    I can see why your management team likes you so much.

    I, just realized a mcguffin Tesseract is going to be needed. Why, actually, I don't really know.


    It'll be spherical in shape instead of cubical, and it'll be orange with a dimpled skin. I'm going to call it "Orange", not Tesseract, so people won't think I'm copying any other movie things.


    Also instead of Buffy and Hilde, I'll change their names to Hilde and Buffy. That should do the trick.

    Okay, Mark, it's all yours - but I'll expect a "Special Thanks To" in the credits as.they roll over the outtakes!

    I got it!

    "Orville and Wilbur: Alien hunters"

    I might steal your Buffy and Hilde idea and make them alien shape-shifters sent to spy on the two brothers. One of the brothers falls in love with one of the shape-shifting women.



    A comedy.


    It will have lots of explosions.

    LOL!!! That would explain why my research found the aliens were developing armies of talking horse clones to keep the clone Wilburs distracted... (too obscure?)

    Speaking of obscure...

    Following the CAA debacle, I have decided to rewrite the script:

    In the early 1900s, two young women (Buffy and Hilde) dress up as males and take jobs in a machine shop to be near the men they secretly adore. The men have no idea that their new shopmates are actually women. Hijinks ensue (and the airplane is accidentally invented when the girls try to manufacture the world's largest blow dryer).

    I 'm thinking of pitching it to Peter Scolari (award winning actor who has also created some great iconic characters of his own)... "You'd be a great Hildebur! As to Buffyville, didn't you use to work with a guy named Tom Something...?"

    Just tell the real story now, Dan. The truth about how one night while the brothers were doing their dates under the stars they found an ancient alien crash site. They studied the artifacts found, and reversed engineered the "Flyer". They also invented T.V., fiber optics, and toothbrushes. The aliens found out and there ensued a great war fought on the far side of the Moon. The brothers just barely won the fight, and the leader of the aliens, Grupoo swore vengeance on the Earthians. So now a clone army of genetically enhanced Orvilles and Wilburs stand guard over humanity from their bases on the Moon, and Antarctica.

    Well, I just got chastised by someone from Wright State University in Dayton, Ohio (which is named for the Wright Brothers) defending Tom Hanks...
    Take on The World's Most Beloved Celebrity at your own risk! LOL!!!

    On the plus side, there are several brave and inspiring real-life characters who, through no fault of their own exploits, had to be written out due to feature length considerations. I am hopeful they will get their just dues in miniseries format.

    Sorry about the unfortunate timing, Dan. I hope you find a way to make it work for you. It wouldn't be the first time that 2 films, or a film and a TV show, came out at the same time, about the same subject. And it's not always the one with the bigger pedigree that's better!
