Wow, what a great collection from the legend that is Eszterhas, the rock god deity of any screenwriter. I urge everyone to find a copy of his book Hollywood Animal. Some great, rare finds here. Once again Beverly Kerr you do not disappoint!

Yeah, I read it a few months ago, just brilliant and as unbelievable as Animal was! Made me want to read his Macabees script even more. A fascinating, talented individual.

Anybody have EVIL EMPIRE or LAND OF THE FREE by Joe Esztehas. A pair of specs he sold in 1995-96 for $4 million and $4.5 million each.

Also looking for TRAPPED. That cat and mouse action thriller he sold with John McTiernan attached. Doug Richardson did a rewrite, but the script sold in a deal worth $5 million in 1997.

Also looking for LAYERS OF SKIN... A spec he wrote as an answer to the criticism he got on BASIC INSTINCT. It was sort of CHINATOWN meets BOUND I believe.

Would love any other Eszterhas scripts as well. His book HOLLYWOOD ANIMAL is also really entertaining.

Layers of Skin sounds good, but read what Eszterhas' agent Guy McElwaine had to say in an October 1993 interview:


And what about that much talked-about Eszterhas script "Layers of Skin," about a lesbian cop on the trail of a killer in Palm Springs? It has never been written, McElwaine said.*

Let's hope he was lying.
