What was PLAY DIRTY about? Never heard of that one. Did Black & Murphy write this before or after they teamed on LW2?

None of the unmade Solomon Kane drafts seem to be available. :(
I didn't know there were any others.

I think Michael J Bassett may have written a sequel to his film that was set in Africa and was much more faithful to Howard's stories.

The near of how much The Mighty Quinn owns True Lies 2, and has it on his list, and I attempted to trade Scott Leva's script with Cameron's True Lies 2" but he had Leva's script but it was a decent move, as how many people have a weakest shit to him to trade.

They actually had been working on a Kane movie since the early 90s, and had several scripts set in Africa. At least one of the earlier scripts was written by Richard Stanley, and Christopher Lambert was in talks to star at one point. They had to change direction because they could only get funding for an origin story.

Yeah, it was another case of doing a completely pointless origin story with the hope of doing a more faithful film down the line. Exactly like that awful CONAN movie they did.

Both bombed so we won't ever get the more faithful film.

Not that anyone will ever learn from this.

Move away from the power lines and stop sniffing that damn glue already. In other news - I think you have three scripts there to play with in regard to Quinn.
Neil has it, and He's scanning and sending it to me, and that's why I'm ******* sacrificing my goddamn self to get that Koepp 1999 draft of Spider-Man.
