    Re: GHOST TOWN trailer

    Psst, I've got a draft of the Demetri Martin script. I have yet to read it. So PM your e-mail if you want a copy.

    No seriously. Some people have those scripts. Lemme check around again and see if I can find who they were again.

    Well then for God's sake don't give him any!

    Funny, I just looked for a clip of him and the first one mentions the script he's doing:

    I'm also a Dimitri Martin fan. I really hope he steers his career well because he has a lot of talent.

    Here's the info I was looking for earlier, but had to go to work:


    Will

    A couple of months into 2006, Demetri Martin went over to DreamWorks and pitched a movie idea to studio head Adam Goodman, and some other guy named Steven Spielberg. The idea was for a movie called "Will." Apparently they seemed to like it, because they bought it. According to Demetri Martin himself, he has already been paid for it. "I got a deal to write a script for DreamWorks—they paid me—so that’s due in 12 weeks. I actually got to pitch it to Spielberg, and he was excited."
    While Demetri will not star in this movie, he will have a supporting role of some sort. Currently Scot Armstrong (the writer of "Old School" and "Road Trip") is set to produce it.
    So far, here is what is known about its plot/story:
    "Will" centers on an ordinary guy who lives in a world where people's lives and destinies are being written by scribes in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted.
    And yes, it is a comedy.


    Moon People

    The second movie Demetri Martin is set to not only write, but also star in, is called "Moon People." He pitched it to Columbia Pictures and they bought it. Very little is known about Moon People so far, but James Bobin, a writer/director from "Da Ali G Show," is set to also be working on it.
    As for the plot, here's what we know: It revolves around a small group of people who return to Earth years after they were sent to colonize the moon.

    Hmmm. I love Ricky, but I wasn't too taken by the trailer.

    I'll sit on the fence on this one, me thinks.

    Sometimes a trailer is a lot better than its movie, and other times the movie is a lot better than its trailer. I'd say this is the latter. I really thought the film was funny, and so did my (comedy) writing partner.

    Really? The trailer doesn't give that impression. I was bored, but then I'm a Brit and Gervais doesn't have broad acting ability. I love his comedy shows, though, but this? The trailer isn't selling it very well, at least to me.

    It is along similar lines. Hard to believe 'Heart and Souls' is 15 years old.

    Also, didn't the ghosts on that film follow the lead (Downey) since he was a child? And influence his life as a child and then appear later in his life when he needed help? That's different.


    Ghosts and angels... themes that are often revisited.

    I read somewhere that Dimitri Martin was writing an interesting script about a guardian angel...
