How to not make a movie involving twitter.
Earlier today I was bitching making an informed comment on the need or lack thereof for a newer version of Nitemare on Elm Street. It is by far my favorite horror/scary movie of all time. Just enough gore to say eww and enough scare to piss your pants(almost). It seems Hollywood has a predilection to remake, excuse me “reload” movies from my childhood/early adult years. What the fuck? Really? Why do we need this. There is a reason they are called classics, you assholes. Leave them alone already. All the people in the world and you assholes can’t come up with original movie ideas? Then get the fuck out of writing. Let some new blood in. Also, directing a music video does not qualify or entitle you to direct a movie. High school and college kids could do as well with the right budget, and in some case I’d say much better.
Anyway that was an unintended rant sidenote. I was talking to @pokerplasm and he said “@igster101 gonna remake your tweet into a movie”. This started a whole chat based around said movie. I was offered the directing gig, but declined and instead accepted an Executive Producer credit. It was determined that @chrishiter would take on the role of casting as he has a bevy of bitches err talent waiting in his closet umm office. @street3 would handle financing, until it was pointed out that people would not accept play money and or negative dollars. Then we thought maybe an IPO would help. @street3 chimed in in his usually drunk err brilliant way with ipo/ponzi scheme and or bank robbery. The laast two were nixed due to legality issues. @pokerplasm vetoed @street3 out and @chrishiter was to cast the deciding vote. I’m still not sure what his final answer was.
Now we need to decide who will write it, we can’t pay them with actual money, but they would be twitter famous which is almost as good, right?. Below, I will cut and paste actual answers for umm posterity reasons. Ok scratch that. There is no easy way I know of to import tweets here yet. I’ll work on it.
