    Movie Death on the Nile

    According to the title, the river dies. Is this an environmental picture? I'd rather see Agatha Christie's story -- you know -- Death ON the Nile.

    Scripts you think are genius... While others may not.

    Do you have any idea what a following this movie has? I mean, they even started their own religion.

    Movie Lady in the Water by M. Night Shyamalan

    Joe wrote a tell-all a few years back -- that would be the definitive source. I remember him getting blind commitment deals at a couple of studios.

    Movie Lady in the Water by M. Night Shyamalan

    I'd like to hear more about this. Can you think of a few examples where a studio spent over a million dollars for a script they hadn't read? I've seen execs decide to buy a script for modest money just to buy the concept, with no intention of using the actual scripts. I've never seen a studio...

    Movie Lady in the Water by M. Night Shyamalan

    Are you sure about that? IIRC, the spec had multiple studio offers over $1MM, and MNS went with Disney because Nina Jacobson convinced him that they would support him and give him autonomy. Certainly his track record helped, but that script was strong enough to start a bidding war.

    Movie Shot Lists

    My favorite feature is Apple Watch integration. Your watch tells you what shot you're on, and how much time you have left before you're behind schedule. Best of all, you don't have to crack out the iPad or phone to check, so you don't stress out the crew.

    Movie Escape from New York (Remake)

    I'd disagree. He interviews his heroes on Directors Chair, and Carpenter is the only one he spoke to this way. I like Rodriguez' ideas off-screen more than his movies. I really want to like his movies, but they typically disappoint. In interviews and podcasts, he has a lot of cool ideas...

    Movie Escape from New York (Remake)

    FWIW, in the Directors Chair interview with John Carpenter, Rodriguez rhapsodizes about how EFNY was the movie that made him want to make movies. I'd be surprised if he didn't stick with this one.

    Movie Ghostbusters

    They could do a "hand-off" movie with medium-sized roles for the old cast, and bring in a younger crew to revitalize the franchise. FWIW, I hated the reboot -- NOT because it was women, but because it was an awful movie. If they had cast all men, it still would have been dreadful.

    Site Shutting Down!

    Not for nothing, Discord and Google are neither private nor secure. A forum with a membership wall is safer than a Discord. Mega is much, much more secure and generally faster than a Google drive. Also good to consider: a single file depository is also a single point of failure. Other groups...

    Maybe a Discord or Keybase would work better.
