The Grim - update

Just a mini update on The Grim, since many of you (okay, Racicot) seem interested. :)

Well, a brief note on the events around Christmas...

If you've been paying attention, you'll remember that Producer No.1 loves this screenplay and wants to make it. Hooray!

He showed it to the production company he works for - lets call them Production Company A - and they too loved it, initially ... and then decided they weren't going to expand their film slate any more as they want to make TV instead.

(The gnashing of teeth you can hear in the background is me.)

But Producer No.1 was not to be deterred. He was already setting up a production company of his own - lets call it Production Company No.1 - to make one of his other pet projects, [Which sounds brilliant by the way, a Romantic Comedy, I'll tell you more when I'm allowed to.] and he still wants to make my Horror script, now via Prod Co No.1.

All this is gonna take time, but things are progressing in the background. He's working his producer magic.

So while he's doing that, I shall get on with life, and writing, and blogging, and buying my new car.

I'm picking her up on Saturday. She's lovely.

Yes, yes, yes - but which car are you buying?

I wish you and your producer and your car the best of success.
