"Does that make roger moore. Sean connery your bond. I think i am generally torn. I say from russia with love but also the spy who loved me as a as another is up there. A lot as well I think just from early exposure. Probably roger moore a little bit more than sean connery. But that's just from earliest both right now. I can't really compare them side by side. Bus fare people struggle continue to occupy until this day. Well cab gemini questions. Well i mean we've touched on james bond. Are there any other spy movies. That really jumped out to you as favorites a spy movies. There's always like the the realistic spy. Movies the tinker tailor soldier spies the british. Vise folks go to when want spy movie. I want some I wasn't espionage that that involves like steaks and jumping and stunts. And that's why i like the born. That's why you now. One of the real pitches for doug initial take on the board of his. It's james bond. If he was ashley physically capable of doing all these things and that if you took away through all of his all the infrastructure behind him and just had him be one bad guy by himself. So that's a good pitch. I have other ones that. I'm dying to and it's honestly honestly genre that i lean on in terms of going to pitch. I chose angeles probably the exception for me because it's not the kind of thing that's usually my wheelhouse right now. Is there anything coming up. You'd like to promote or any projects working on a couple of things. So i have my weekly podcast called script. It's it's craig mazin so we have. We just crossed up at five hundred. Our on a script companion book which should be fun. what else am i up to. I the movie in production right now at warners called toto. Which is the story wizard of oz from todos. One of you. So that's been tremendously outs to pursue starting that and Other protestant hoping to get shooting. How pretty soon. It's been a obviously a weird year for everybody but As we started start getting things back into production. It's fun to think of stuff happening in front of the cameras again. Well i suppose that wraps us up. John i wanna thank you for taking the time to come and talk about. Charlie's angels today absolutely camps absolute pleasure and way back from all turbocharged interview with john olga and while turbocharged indeed. That interview went full throttle. Let us run. I mean it was an absolute blast. john clearly is a a master his croft. I would say he knows what he's talking about. And the charlie's angels films are not particularly deep. Shall we say really. It's not how i thought they were really on the human condition. Maybe if you were As good looking as the angels may be our lives would be different than than we would resonate more with it but it's nice as to how much little went into the process of putting these films together because he clearly cares for the characters. Yeah no kidding and it was really interesting to hear him talk about his phantom regarding the original property so often when it comes to tv shows being adapted into movies or any real. Ip you kind of question sometimes did this writer or director really even care that much about this property or they just kinda get tossed onto it. How did that work..

"Talk about story number. Two robocop is getting a new video game. This is michael mcwhirter at polygon and kevin as i read through. I got a trailer you can pull up to show the people a new robocop video game development and slated for release in twenty twenty three publisher lake nikon announced tuesday during a livestream call. Nikon connect tallow robocop rope city. The first person shooter we'll put players in the total body. Prosthesis of alex murphy robocop on a mission to protect detroit beyond that nikon developer. Tian didn't reveal much about robocop rogue city other than than it's destined for an unspecified consoles in a couple of years row city will feature in original story in the franchise's universe. Nick on said in a news release. The publisher and developer are working with studio. Mgm to develop an authentic robocop game experience. That is faithful to the franchises dna. Nikon said tian surly has experienced bringing eighties action. Heroes to video games. The polish studio is perhaps best known for his work on terminator resistance. The twenty nine thousand nine shooter based on the terminator franchise that wasn't the worst thing. Ever and rambo the video game a twenty fourteen rail shooter. That was frankly. Pretty awful a teaser. Trailer for robocop roque city hints at something similarly low budget and perhaps a bit janke but still shows premise. Tim how you feel about a new robocop video. Well terminator terminator resistance. You said it's not the worst thing ever gould. It real quick sixty percent metacritic but a one out of five from euro gamer. So that's what we're dealing with. Not the worst thing ever. This is one of those new stories where it's like. I'm happy it's happening just so that nick can have a little bit of endorphins for a second and like oh that's cool but he's not gonna play it. There's no way this is actually a quality video game like we're seeing so many of these retro revivals of like movie. Ip's from the eighties whether it's dead by daylight like all the cameos or the predator games or the alien games coming out all that and those seem like there's a lot more care being put into this kind of seems like me to cash grab type situation based on that. Yeah this feels like an old video game. Industry had to move. This feels like a tooth mid-2000s. Ps two early. Ps three kind of move of. Hey we got robocop. Make a video game out of them in the fact that it's coming from the same crew that did the rambo game the on rails rambo game i remember as i was coming out paying attention to reviews and washing gameplay videos of it and it is no joke one of the worst things i've ever seen in my life and so i got no faith in this but is cool. It's cool for the people that might be again. Super fans robocop knicks pinos. The world's maybe be like cool. I can check this out fuck around a little bit. Maybe there's that small chance that it turns out to have some kind of quality aspect to it that gets you addicted. I think that's the hope. I hope i hope that for you as well for anybody looking forward to a video you know. It's quite a few people on twitter yesterday. Getting pretty excited about this one. And so all power to you. I hope for the best for this video game. Robocop rogue city. Tim was talk about story number three. Hbo's the last season one will have ten episodes. Adele anchors aegean. Hbo is the last with tv. Series will have a ten episode for season writer and producer. Craig mazin has confirmed. Culture crave shared the episode count for the upcoming hbo series after it was revealed by mazen during a recent appearance on the script. Podcast in which featured as guest to discuss the process of prepping for an entire season television quote we have five directors across ten episodes maze revealed around the seventeen forty mark the also indicated that they had figured out all the pairings for the episodes in terms of the directors of photography in individual episode directors. Though he didn't speak any further on those matches with production kicking off this month mazing also touched on the shows shooting schedule in some of the considerations surrounding that in doing so he revealed that this show will be mostly set during daylight hours due to the logistics of filming at night. When calgary only has about four and a half hours of proper dark to shoot nighttime scenes in right now. The last game creator. Neil druckman is working as both a writer and executive producer alongside mazen. Druckman says the series will stay pretty close to the game at places but other parts may deviate greatly because tv is a different medium. The drama between the characters is said to be one of the one of the areas. The series will explore further. Tim how you feel about ten apsos is that get him out for you. Oh yeah this is perfect. I could not be more excited for the show. Like ten episodes is what i would have expected but it could have been less. Hbo has been known to do six things that we're seeing a trend towards shorter seasons of of this level of tv. So definitely excited about that. I can't wait for this show. It is probably one of the things. I'm most excited for period across any medium at this point More than a lot of the movies more than any video game. It's like i want to see this. There are so many elements in its that. Just sound like this is going to be something incredibly special and everything that they're saying here about how much it's going to respect the original game but also kind of do its own thing. That's exactly what i wanna see from last of us. Hbo show they got the music. They got the kost looks. Incredible and every single thing. I'm hearing here is great. The one kind of like being a little fiat is this the four and a half hours of proper dark. I'm not going to be like worried about it. But it's like. I wish that there weren't elements that were constricting. Potentially the vision of what's being made. But i think that this is a call being taken out of the context and i think that they're talking and dropping bunch of little like tidbits of fun things not things that are actually affecting the show in any real way. 'cause it's not like relies on night scenes. Really you know. There are only a few scenes that i can think of the last one. That are means exactly but you know. I love ten episodes. Ten episodes perfectly season tv. And i'm still in the place with the show. Where i don't i don't necessarily want the last of us to be adapted you know. I think the last was works so good as a video game it is perfect as a video game story and i. It's hard for me to think of something that is adapting that that is going to be as good or better than that but we are. We are hearing pretty much all good news based off of the production of it like everything they've said about it makes me go okay. This is going to be a good thing. Like they're treating this the right way. They got the right people behind it the fact that they have the composer the same composer for the game. It was a really exciting thing gustavo. Yeah i was gonna say. I was gonna say establish a role but i was like no. That's guy but the fact that the fact that they're treating this right you know has excited. And i'm looking forward to it but it's still even hearing hearing things like parts of the show we're going to deviate greatly because tv is a different medium. That's what you wanna hear right. But part of me is like okay but are they when you deviate. Are you going to treat joe in a way. That's differently from how i view joe from the video game is going to be different character. They talk about focusing in on the the drama between the characters..

"You know. Yeah okay so. It's not the same guy. Good to hear but man. I don't know you know. I think know i've said this before and again you've heard me say this over and over again it's in the writing man. I mean even when we saw get out we heard it was like a a black dude being brainwashed by white family and we thought we. We all thought that that was what we saw the trailer. We thought okay is this. The parody of blaxploitation is this a comedy and then ended up being one of the best movies of that year when it came out of blacula especially with some of the things that you're bringing them christian. Yeah anything can be done. Man depends on what kind of what kind what kind of tight rope walking. I do think it'd be cool to make it kind of not not be but kind of make it humorous in some parts make itself aware but also make everything make sense if something sounds ridiculous within right it to where it makes sense so let me let me tell you. Creative team dionne taylor. I believe who did that. Hillary swank movie from last year. The towel where she was like fatal attraction shit. You know what i'm talking about. Yeah you know. I was in a skype call with those guys man when when that movie came out which i felt bad about because they you know i think the movies okay. Gabe rental not great anything. But that guy's doing to movies right now. He's doing so he's doing. This is he. Gonna is either as a producer. No he's directing us he's directing he's also doing another one on a big historical figure man. I can't forget. I can't remember who it is. This guy's busy guys so what you will about him. But he's pretty busy man right and here's the other thing. There are plenty of people who have done. Really bad as craig mazen's the when i go back to craig mazin got started writing scary movie three and four and the hangover movies and then he did sure noble and now he's doing the last of us so it's like sometimes you gotta pay your dues. You gotta use a bad fucking projects in order to get where you're going to. And that's not an indictment of all this other stuff. I've heard he actually. There's a movie called the intruder. That's supposed to be good. But i have not seen it same director. So it's like. I think you can't always be to hypercritical about the talent behind the project. It always comes down to a riding level. But i think what it starts with is like having an idea for the tone of it and this is the one that doesn't lend itself so easily like candy man. The original ones is a really great so sort of lends itself to whatever the next version of that's going to be But blockchain is so fucking specific in what it is that it's like you either need to one hundred percent. Lean into it or you need to try to get away from it as best you can. And so i guess what i'm asking you. Your personal opinion is like you have your druthers. What do you. What would you rather it be like a balls to the wall blaxploitation or do you want them to pull back the reins a little bit. I want them to make a contemporary man. I mean you know. There's lots of the black cars during the day. We don't need to blaxploitation the where you would be. That can't be. I think we can. We can definitely going to have some fun with it but we can actually make some good points to this. Direct might be great man. Because he's done he's done some sort of borderline campy thrillers. You know that movie the intruder. Actually i like that movie a lot. And i won't even said that was great but that will be had me laughing. So that's one. Where dennis quaid was trying to break into black couple's home so you can sleep at dues wife..

"Deregulating and opening up the wildlife for oil. I don't know I haven't read it but. I've time believing trump is doing anything to preserve but Let's just take a listen to see if you can figure out what he's talking about in this clip where their eyes widen in amazement as old faithful burst into the sky. When they gaze upon your Semites. Its. Towering Sequoias. No, no, no that's not using. Might it is Yosemite Yosemite? I. Mean. Hey readings hard right reading his hard. especially a week after you said, you comprehend more than anyone Jonathan Swan ever interviewed right we all know our favorite cartoon character llosa Might Sam, right? Good. Lord to cap it all off. He sent this tweet about an hour before I recorded this quote whether you call it vote by mail or absentee voting in Florida the election system is safe insecure tried and true. Florida's voting system has been cleaned up. We defeated Democrats attempts at change so in Florida? Anchorage. To request ballot and vote by mail has take. Maga. Okay. That's weird. Why does he singled out Florida? Maybe it's because it's like the senior capital of America. Oh. Maybe it's because Donald Jess which his residents to Florida. So he doesn't want to answer any questions at all about why he thinks it's okay for him to do it and not for us he thinks everyone is an idiot except for him he thinks he's playing everyone. Just a quick update on. Hurricane Isa es and that is the last time that I'm going to be saying that. Can we have at least pronounced it differently if we're going to keep the name. I mean I don't want it. Too much because it's probably biblical or something but man dumb naming anyhow it weakened briefly to a tropical storm and then it was right back to hurricane status apparently one, hundred, twenty, million Americans are in the path of the storm. It's taking that East Coast Path I talked about on Friday which was supposed to be the stronger one but actually, it's not gonNA be too bad. It's moving quickly in terms of a hurricane sixteen miles an hour which I didn't think was quick but. It's traveling right up the I ninety five corridor. And it's expected to weaken pretty rapidly as soon as it hits land. So that's good. So just in summary Be careful if you're on the east coast because it's coming for you all the way through Maine and up to Quebec and stuff like that. In terms of what it could have been. This is actually not too bad. Now, obviously need to take it seriously make a plan and get out. But all know. Pretty good so far. and Oh you know what that means? Yes. The sound of Lee Greenwood Scott blessed the USA means that someone in America has said or done something. So ridiculous that it could only have come from America. Let's see who you've got today. it's Republican Lobbyist Neil. Clark. WHO's also trying to fight off a racketeering charge because he's involved with one client who was under investigation by the FBI Neil decided to weigh in on the mask debate. Saying he's anti mask because quote if masks were necessary for our survival is a species, we would have evolved one by now we haven't we have noses and mouths. Airways. It is not natural for people to go around with face masks on in their general life and no amount of government propaganda can change that. I mean. WHOA. Craig Mazin who you might remember as the writer and creator of the Turnover TV series. The best reply I think saying shoes mother effort do you wear them? Yeah. Wow. Hey, we haven't evolved shirts yet either so maybe we don't need those I'll just let good old Lee take it from..

"You could do the loss of us as a ten episode miniseries with just two characters, and you know them coming into contact with you know like maybe one or two characters that you made in one or two, every one or two episodes, but nothing frequent like no kind of like. A frequent characters know in supporting roles and things like that. I think Honestly Cape The Cape the focus on Jolan Ellie build you know obviously, probably not I episodes show us the giles background like including the the death of his daughter, and then build the relationship over the next nine episodes between Joel and Ellie. I hope you're I. I feel very confident your. And this is why a lot of these award shows. Stretch out time and need to be story, which and counts have Joel Elliot's separate every single episode I'll get Sir repetitive and a beat such so formulaic. So what I think could happen and I hope I'm wrong I really want to be wrong, but I think they're going to introduce a whole bunch of characters way a lot of have vern in-depth storylines and they're going to. We're not just going forward to characters on. On I think I think there's going to be. You're going to cut away to some be plots every now and then, and it was new characters, and they're going to have to run stories, and there are an ox, and then it's GonNa. Stop feeling across the boss, mental stop feeling like walking dead. I want to be wrong, but discuss thinking with the way a lot of these franchise older. These shows are made. Like. They need that because they don't WanNa pay the actors for a full episode. They want to spread across. You're on camera Now we'll look something like game of thrones had literally three different teams filming at the same time in three different countries. Is based on a book. It's like sprawling. Lord of the rings like size like the. Skype of low like this game with Ryan's is so much bigger than the loss of US right Sir on. I was just GonNa say the kind of had the hand side. I'm putting my I'm betting. All of my chips on Craig Mazin. Like is like one hundred percent confidence that he's GonNa. Knock this out about probably like probably like. Let's be real, but I'm also thinking you know based on my experience lost of us to one of the things I did like especially when you get into the second half of the game is really. Good a really flesh out the wo- all that flesh it out there. Kinda give you what you already night, but they show you. The perspectives and I can really see some good building that and I remember thinking Oh wouldn't mind being more this and actually got me. Thinking sure could be more than just the typical to be one adventure thing and I can see how that could be exploitative shy and I have a feeling. Riders would be very tempted to go into that I.

To. Okay I Chiara Yamaoka. Silent closer. In Call! He's going to be doing the scorn. Only familiar with the horror aspect of their work but I don't know like cyberpunk music is still little difference. It'll be interesting to hear I'm I'm I'm so ready so so CG CD project. I'm tripping over my words because I was so excited and I want all these that wants to. Believe. Read is going to be the producer audit studio triggers working as the studio and and here. Hero Yuki Mis she who the girl in the gun kill. Killing primary is going to be directing currently down is the most ridiculous show. It's I, but. I mean that in a great way by the way I don't mean to. No, no, no I totally understand, but yeah, so that's that's GonNa be hitting Netflix's in twenty twenty two. Excited I mean I love I. Love how Netflix's has just gone double down onto just anime and it's interesting to see like the success with witcher and then. Last of us is gonNA live action. treatment by Craig Mazin so It's interesting to see that cyberpunk. You know you know has even come out yet, but the enemies already been announced like the high for this is like unreal. And like I'm so excited. We literally just had a big discussion about anime and our love of enemy, not an hour ago and an entry points for people that don't know anything about anime and I feel like this is going to be such a perfect way for people who were like no those are cartoons I don't care about that. Having cyberpunk twenty seventy seven, as like your your entry point into anime, and then like studio trigger always as an amazing job, so then they're going to be like all man. I wonder what else studios done. And then just like branching into all of that content is like we're going to get so many. Good any fans more blaming. It's you also have that kind of. You have? And I'm on board. Sign me up. You have the coupling of quote products like you know. By the time this CYBERPUNK will have been out already for a while and given the I don't know the scope of it the hype of How much CD are really puts? Puts into their their stuff, and how it's been the game, itself has been delayed. I can't imagine that it's not going to be. A. Amazing so this'll be like. It's almost like DLC. Almost? It's just like it's like. Oh, I've got DLC cut scenes, so I mean it's funny that you mention it that way we're like the game has come out. Were like when we did blade runner back when like our first year of podcasting, bladerunner had little enemy shorts, and some of them were directed by the guy who directed the cowboy bebop anime, and so it was like that nice blend and. Of the medium at the same time, so yeah. Cool is that all for your news Kaylin. I was very excited about a of movie that was also announced. Chicken run. Oh, yeah. Twenty third it was the twentieth serie of chicken run. That is the highest grossing Stop Motion Animation Film of All time. One of the greatest stop motion studios of all time. Good and like okay. Chicken row. Was Oil Las Corey. Come back but so chicken like. Was all about escaping the farm and getting to a sanctuary twenty years old. I know I know I'm sorry. Sorry, but so they found. So they finally found like a good story to do a sequel for it, and now it's going to be about going now. They're gonNA. Break in, and it's like Oh. My God I have. To I mean. That for my brother, but but the people who wrote Wallace and gromit. There's a lot of heavy hitters from stop motion world that are going to be working on the sequel. Yet when the how it's going to go into full production starting next year, I don't know in the release dates going to be, but I was also excited about that. I'm just getting. I'm passionate about the things that are happening this week. Should be how dare how I'm glad that you shoehorned a second topic end because my topic touches all topics in the world like God. Okay it doesn't it does. Back back like a couple of days ago. Yom saying by the time of this recording. Warner Brothers had announced DC fandom so in August twenty second, they will have a starting at ten am. Pacific a live events and a lot of people have been talking about. How with? Three and COMECON getting like so big and also just a little bit more consumer focused, and not really about on the industry and the movers and shakers, and the pencil pushers and stuff like that. Who are there to meet people to work on? Things that companies should start doing their own conventions, and in light of everything going on, we've been seeing that. A bunch of companies have been doing that as well so we've been seeing a lot of conventions. These online zoom. Conventions as well as A different Summer Games Aegean. You know that these kind of impromptu event so with one other dancing. DC Fan dome. This is there in a sense they're. Equivalent to what Sania COMECON would have been. What are they going to announce a bunch of stuff? A lot of people are thinking. That wonder you, no wonder woman trailers suicide squad trailer Batman Superman game may be all that stuff so everything that we've been talking about honor update. Show might come to light there. That being said you know recently wonder woman did change their released August twelfth, but that also came in line that now. Tenant is also going to be August twelfth. No, so you WANNA brother. Films are pretty much. The temple films. Okay. The same day so I'm like this feels like what happened with infinity, war and Spiderman far from home where? Endgame game was like we're so close to getting two billion, but we can't. And I was like well. Because you've made it, and then you put a report linking input Spiderman right next to each other, just killed your endgame money and to me it's more. It's a really interesting thing. It doesn't feel like it's a the smartest move, but feels like. If there's going to be one movie you watched at the end of. Restriction, start loosening up and everything like that are when we find the curve that it's going to be a one brothers film, so I don't know if that's going to pay in favor to them, or if it's going to push out further on to me I predict more pushes more pushes them future. But that does come in light of perhaps the biggest news, so boy, so excited days and even Shetty who directed the ambitious two part film, it and part two. Now Directing Flash. There's been a lot of conversation. You know like will Ezra Miller, reprise role will occur. Clemens reprise her role as Iris. West houses of effect, the Santa cut houses affect everything else and is going to be a standalone film. This is gonNA. Be Flashpoint. We'll Jeffrey Dean. Morgan and Laura Cohen come in as Martha Thomas Wayne. What's GonNa Happen Baby? We don't know but you. Know One thing now. We know that it is going to be a flashpoint and Michael Keaton will reprise. This is a key word. reprise his Bruce Wayne role in December and films over thirty years ago and now this is the crazy thing you hear about. Michael Jordan right. Who Played Fan Human Torch in Fox's Fan. And then now kill monger you got. Josh Brolin who played hacks for DC and then stanzas. And so now seeing my keen go from Batman to Spiderman and now back to Batman. It's now currently Batman Birdman to spider-man. He's a man of multiple. Users. Yeah, and so that's really cool, and you know like you know how many people get offered the chance to play Batman. How many people offered the chance to play? Batman again to three you know, and so it's it's kind of A. It's crazy, thing and so a little bit more from Hollywood reporter. They are reporting a lot of who knows what's going to happen with it because. Because a lot of people were expecting that are flashpoint was going to be the vehicle to let Robert Patterson's Batman. Come into the Snyder verse and stuff like that. We don't know what's going to happen to us. And a lot of people have been speculating that at the end of dex Five Film Arc that Batman Bat Ben Affleck. Batman was going to die at the end of it. At the dark side, and it was gonna be the ultimate sacrifice of human, so it leads to their the justly must stand for what he is, and so a lot of people are thinking.

Come true and I feel so fortunate that I get to do it again. On an even bigger scale, everyone brings their a game to work with Kate. And I know together.

Y. D. in China and he took a billion California time and taxpayer dollars which they call revenue we call parts of our paycheck I am awarded a no bid contract to a company called B. Y. D. for them to make masks spent now at a time it looks like the need for masks might be going down but regardless the company B. but he came back and said well in order to hold your spot in line and guarantee delivery we're gonna need four hundred fifty five million up front Gavin doesn't like being asked questions about this I'm there are some who say that that B. Y. D. has been a campaign contributor to Gavin Newsom and money is fungible you know four hundred fifty five million of your tax dollars going to to work Shenzen China were B. Y. D. is headquartered you can score out the other end is a million dollar political action committee for Gavin twenty twenty four I mean that's the side that works he he's not answering questions about this for the record by the way the way he has a factory in Lancaster B. U. I. D. is one of the world's largest electric vehicle companies to make electric motorcycles cars trucks buses and all that and in fact you may have seen some other electric buses I want to say in Santa Monica Beverly hills and other parts it's a little it looks like paratrooper wings and I think it says B. Y. D. but they make these electric buses they're they're they're sold on the west coast but they're made in Lancaster and then they also make the electric trucks that worked on the port of LA port of Long Beach I guess he can't have Truckee truck trucks in the market have electric trucks so B. Y. D. has a factory in Lancaster the employee several hundred people they're all furloughed you know was there a thought maybe just saying to this company Hey here's a billion dollars but could you maybe I'm Jerry rig some machines so that these workers in Lancaster can go back to the factory and make masks until it's time to make electric buses again he didn't do that he just said oh you're good okay here's here's a billion dollars here for fifty five million up front no bid contract that annoying legislature is on my **** about this but stop asking about it to help his money so if you're wondering B. Y. D. stands for build your dreams for the record let me just state this Berkshire Hathaway owns B. Y. D. that's Warren Buffett and his company you know out of Omaha Nebraska so there's that there there my own I mean they're the majority stockholder the company was big gun I'm about to buy some start up people but but it's part owned by the Chinese government as every successful company as they all own a piece of everything so it's a it's a great way to plant engineers in Lancaster conveniently all the places in California that weird that the Chinese company the Chinese engineers is just a couple miles as the crow flies from the B. twenty one is being built by the way America's next pastel fighter which a final tangent before we take a break and come back and talk about ammunition okay if you're heading north on the fourteen and you start coming to bomb our country maybe you're you're coming out to act and you start seeing Northrop employment billboards into you know Hey engineers you know build it stealthy the whole thing so you know they're they're booming you know the Northrop has the V.

The Last of Us on HBO - Everything we know so far

"In other exclusive Sony News. It was announced that there is going to be last of US TV show from the writer creator of Chernobyl And it's going to be working with like Neil Diamond's going along with them It seems like really just sort of everyone kind of came together on this What I WANT. I want to hear the story behind this. Because Shannon would who plays Dina and loss of US potter apparently introduced Neil Druckman to. Oh yeah okay. She's on Westworld on it. She is and she introduce them. And I'd I'd love to kind of hear about those Ille- chats because the sky Craig Mazin was. Is that how you show no? I hopefully soon. If you haven't seen sure noble go watch it. 'cause it's like says very good easing very good. I'm like a huge horror fan and that was probably my my favorite piece of media around horror last year which was terrifying. Because there's no monster it's just invisible. Poison the yeah. It's super creepy and real. Yeah but it turns out a craig is also a big Fan of last of us and it was weird kind of one of those like. Oh It's a nice twitter romance. Where like him and Neil to start tweeting at each other back and forth and then gradually I guess they just sort of actually talking about doing this. Yeah What's interesting about? This specifically is the this effectively cancels out the long in production. How movie that they were working on that. Neil Druckman openly tweeted like about a year ago and they said like we have a script he was like. I haven't seen it right. So good luck out. There was one of those like that. Movie was sort of neck and neck with uncharted for awhile in terms of like who is making. This is actually happening. This is getting kicked to fifteen different writers and directors. Every six weeks it was in development hell constantly and so this will play. This is the they've gone down to especially in terms of everyone's a little bit. I understand the concern or of attending something like the loss of us into a different format because it it works so well as a piece of interactive media particularly when it comes to that sort of end twist where you realize that the character you are controlling spoilers. Sorry sorry yeah massive spoilers. The character you're controlling isn't necessarily the guy thought he was and that is a very pal that was a very powerful moment in the game for me and you're not necessarily going to be able to replicate that in a shower or film but I do think that there are so many other avenues at a show in particular could take that world into. Yeah I think there's a lot more room for world building their Mike Concerns. Are that this unlike. You just alluded to. I think if you're a huge fan of the game you have that story already. That story was told you in the medium that you I received it in and having that reinterpreted through cinema is a kind of thinom cinema. You can't say cinema. You have to say Susannah. Oh you like Salem. I only watch cinema on it. It could. It could be kind of like weird offloading because you're sort of that reverse uncanny valley. Yeah sadly not to say that. Yeah because all of a sudden you're looking at something and you're like that's not the character that I imagine the this way you have to do this voice. This is the way you have to do this character. Like people have already been asking for the Ashley Johnson and Troy Baker to play these characters and like that doesn't work because they does not solve that so profoundly doesn't work. Yeah yeah if they don't Johnson is not a kid no no exactly troy. Baker is not. He's not a crusty old man Yeah I mean but I'm still really excited. I do think that as a story. The loss of us is one of the very few stories that can actually shoulder an HBO adaptation. I think that is one of the most we will while mature storytelling director of Muslim. Thin them off but like it is it is. It is voices to their cinema. We're getting too silly. You'll see in the three colors trilogy. No I only walked three Ninjas kick back in the cinema saying anyway very miserable storytelling dot. So I think it's right and I was. I was sort of wondering whether that they would actually like focus on different carriages. Hope yes like we do. There's there's a quote here from like Hollywood reporter said the. Hbo Series Will Cover The events of the original game which was written by Druckman with the possibility of additional content based on the forthcoming game sequel. The last part two. Yeah and it'll be Joel and Ellie story with some deal. We're not just Hypothesis hypothesizing here. It's not going to be Joel and Ellie. It is and reiterated by Craig. Ooh instead of saying when he said that Elliot is going to be gay in the NFL. We know that Elliot's actually going to be the focus. Yeah I think this this also just one thing on this. I do really think it it. It's going to be made or broken by its core. Two are like whoever they cost. I think so far a lot of the speculation that has been really wildly off Because people will kind of forget that we are focusing on. How old was early in the game she was. I think it and I'm probably wrong. I Apologize Response at an auction. I'm trying to think that because she's she's nineteen in the sequel and that is five years later. If I'm right possible to do that math. We'll have to this on this show whether it's five years. I'm not sure wouldn't know God I've taught myself. I'm just seeing the Youtube comments pouring down. But she's she's young kid she's only just like interim kind of teenagehood she's very very young and I personally would love to see an unknown in that role like like a lot of people have to do the casting where it's like. Who Does the character look like? And it's like well that doesn't really the whole point of acting is to behave like someone else regardless of how you might look and you know. Obviously there's I mean we. We saw this recently with the witcher casting where people like. That's not my Jennifer and then the show came out and for the most part like this is actually pretty good. This they nailed it. They did a good job. And what's based on why it's there is of course that thing where you you look at it. Whatever the show is there will inevitably be people. Were like well. I don't know how I feel about it. It's not what I wanted.

Eli Roth to Direct ‘Borderlands’ Movie Based on Video Game Series at Lionsgate

"Let's talk a borderland. They're they're making a movie in this time they're trying to make it with. Er Roth then tell us about it. Yes Oh rob is going to be directing borderlands movie for Lionsgate and Borderlands is based on a video game It's actually a several video games. I think there are three or four in total now The original game was set in the distant future at a time when various mega corporations seek control of various planets to colonize and mine for their mineral wealth and resources when one of those corporations discovers an alien vault on a planet called Pandora. No it's not an Avatar crossover. A team is sent in and ends up having to fight off the local wildlife and bandit population while basically trying to it. It's like A. It's like a race for whatever's at this vault so that's the basic premise of at least the first game And yet at Craig. Mazin the guy who wrote a lot of questionable stuff and then also trouble is writing the script here so I wonder if this is where this is. GonNa to fall on the Craig Mazin Quality Line. Because he's he's somebody that frankly had written off and then Chernobyl just like blew me out of the water so I was like. Wow I made a mistake by judging this person way. Too harshly and now. I'm like borderlands though really so I'm not sure if he's going to be able to bring. I don't know any sort of special Relevance to a borderlands movie from Eli Roth but at least it could be interesting but the most interesting thing to me. Is that the game. Has this really cool like Rodeo scoped? Look I don't know if you remember like the movie A scanner darkly that Kiana raves was in early to mid two thousands. But I kind of not very many movies look like that and I kind of hope that this borderlands movie tries to retain the visual style of the Games by you know taking that same approach With its own visuals. That's just pure speculation on my part but I just think that would be a cool way to separate this out and sort of make it stand out. In like the post apocalyptic kind of landscape that this movie is GonNa ultimately in.

You're not gonna end so we'll facts actual facts you're making stuff up. That's the problem I defy. Defy stuff you making. Because I I'm trying to get and see. Can you pay on this seven weeks before the Steele dossier? The FIS the defies a warrant was had much more than just steel. That's not true. They actually making the deputy director of the FBI said opposite unless, you know more than him. That's that's, that's Jason. I, I gotta run. Thanks for the good. Okay. I gotta say, folks, I've done a lot of interviews on FOX talk radio and elsewhere that one, I think takes the cake for the most enjoyable interview I have ever done on TV, then he throws in the end the next year bonus but fake talking point that. Well, you know, they had a lot of information outside of the dossier. Really? What is that, you know about that? What information that they have outside of the dossier? It hasn't leaked out yet. So there's another secret dossier out there about Trump of additional stuff. We haven't seen yet you're the only one who say he doesn't know that he's just making that up and Andy McCabe, of course, the deputy director of the FBI has already said, defies a warrant, we've not would not have existed but out the dossier. So unless Jason knows something to former deputy director of the FBI does. And maybe you should get it to the FBI quick. If he's got some dossier on Trump, who knows maybe it's another Christopher Steele dossier, and has the credibility of that. So I appreciate all, you watch that. I really enjoyed it had a good time. And again hat tip. Ken Meyer media for writing it up. I wouldn't have found a video elsewhere, so nice job. Thanks, buddy. Hey, I'm this year noble thing is really spoke to be really kind of spoken to me moving on. You know, I was really into the HBO series Chernobyl, and it is terrific. I don't mean to take away from the quality of it at all. I mean, I can't say in strong enough terms how much my wife and I enjoyed the mini series on HBO Chernobyl after obviously, after the nuclear accident in Pripyat Ukraine at the two noble nuclear plant. The problem is for those who've regulations to the show is the producer of the show decided to be a good idea to start attacking conservatives, once you do that, I'm out, you want to watch the show knock yourself out. I'm telling you. It's the quality of its amazing. It's riveting, I didn't watch the last piece of it, because I'm just not going to spend my time putting eyeballs on content produced by people that hate us, and constantly attack us, I mean, keep in mind, this guy Craig Mazin, or Maslin rivers names, who produced the show. We were giving him on my show. I wasn't doing it out of generosity was doing it because it was a quality show. We but we were talking about it, giving them free advertising. I'm what's can be an expensive podcast advertise on at times. You know, and I felt kind of. A slap in the face, like wait. I'm advertising. Rush Limbaugh loved it to his shows a lot more expensive to get on. And we're talking about your program, and you turn around and spitting in fat, you idiot conservatives you're anything about so, whatever. Thanks, craig. Good, job, Magoo good way to crap on your audience, you know night, well done, but it is a fascinating series. And there's no reason we should refrain from talking about the incident itself.

TV Review: A 'Chernobyl' Deep Dive

"The most incredible thing I've seen on television this year. And really in some time has just concluded I'm talking, of course about Chernobyl the HBO mini series chronicling the devastating nuclear disaster that occurred on April twenty-sixth nineteen Eighty-six near the city of Pripyat in the former Soviet Union leader in the show. I'll be speaking with creator writer. Producer Craig Mazin, who will help me understand how he pulled off this extrordinary feet. But I, I am joined by fellow her noble, admire and ringer executive editor Mallory Ruben. Hello, moe. Hello. Mel you are. You're a voice in the darkness. You were a Soviet minor in the chair noble. Admiration society months ago. I saw screen this show and I was like this is extraordinary. It's incredible. How powerful and beautifully done this very sad. Gripping physically upsetting story is crickets. No one had seen a screener. He's actively making fun of you became a bit. And I certainly feel vindicated not just because you like it. But because a great many people have come to appreciate this show, but tell me a little bit about your journey. You had been living in west rose for quite some time. And then the show came to you and very quickly. You started to consume it. Yeah. I joined a few weeks late Memorial Day weekend, fact. Sorry, sink convert truly a binge then as you know, it's a something of a habit of mine I as you as you said, wrapped up with thrones and I needed to reconnect to the wider culture wanted a little, you know, joy in my life, and I thought. What better way to connect to my fellow man? Rediscovered my own humanity then sure noble. But all jokes aside, you know you'd spoken so highly of it. And there was something appealing to me about the fact that it was a miniseries. It was I was gonna be able to consume it off fairly quickly started watching it. Early in the weekend. So three episodes were out at that point in time. And I watched all three in a row and then was consumed with almost like a surprisingly dangerous, rage that I could not immediately access the final two episodes. And then I watched both of those obviously, when, when they aired, and in the case of the family when you were kind enough to provide me with screener. That's why we're here right now. I had a very similar experience. I watched the first episode like I said months ago with my wife and we were both very taken, but then also, well, we wanted to keep watching it, but we knew that it was it would it would be part of the kind of conversations like oh, but also there's something about any show like this unfold slowly limiting is powerful to no offense to binging in general. I respect that approach to, to culture. But I did appreciate the slow roll out, and we, we sort of parcel deaf ourselves in that way. I think part of the reason he needs to do that is because there's just just a really deep emotional toll that the show wages on its viewers because of its. You know, not just the, the physical terror that you get from it, but just considering the absolute awful scope of what happened in these events. I I'm not sure if you were alive, when winter, the turnover will disaster happened. I was not. So we'll turn Warren later that year September eighty six so April twenty six eighty six as my good friend David Shapiro's birthday, we'll congratulations to David. I hope he wasn't met him for the first time she said, Chernobyl, I presume he was not injure noble when he was Cleveland. Thank goodness. What was your level of awareness of this event? Throughout the course of my life, you know, I think probably similar to what it was for many people who came to this show, which is an awareness that a disaster, it happened. And then little else beyond that, and actually, I started listening to the podcast or the HBO was put out around the show, the official podcast, noble, the buck cast the turnover Petrova podcast and that's that's out there right away as motivation for creating in the first place was this complete void for certainly not everyone, but wide swath of people about what actually happened here and why. And so, in that sense, I think ultimately partially at out week after week instead of all at once is actually very fitting because you as viewer obviously not equating, the experience of the viewer with the experience of somebody on the ground. But it manufacturers that sense of protracted discovery and your desire. Fire is so fierce to understand how what how could this have possibly happen, especially when you realize that it was a safety tests that what's this all? It's just such an incongruous set of initial facts that you're so desperate to learn. And the fact that you can't get to the truth right away. And that, in fact suffocating the truth is really the entire point for so many people is this unbelievably frustrating, but also compelling for pulse of force throughout the rest of the show. You're the eagerness to understand, I think, is the driving force, especially if the first two episodes, which play a lot more sort of like a murder mystery. You know, we're thrust almost immediately into this very quiet setting where this huge disaster happens. There's no really not a lot of preamble before we get to be actual disaster. Right. And then the, the preamble is the suicide of the pro tag. That's right. That's right. Which is also kind of a sleight of hand, as a storytelling device. But there's something so unusual about the way that everything is meted out here. But also kind of it kind of drags you along once things get extremely intense by. Roads, three and four you, you kinda can't turn away, even though we're start to fully understand why some of these things happened until we get to episode five when we realized that we don't actually know why certain things happened in more people had more information than we originally thought it's really kind of a masterful Sherlock Holmes, Ian kind of design for, for telling the story, I think a lot of times with docudrama. You tend to get something that is very earnest. That is very straightforward. It is a very chronological. Now, this is told chronologically, except for that sort of opening sequence you reference, but a lot of information is withheld in the way, it's with held is very powerful. For you. I is this a kind of a format kind of real life story that you like, because when I think of your passions, I think, you know, Harry Potter, of course in game of thrones. And the things that are more fantastical. This is really hard line down the middle in many ways, journalism. Yeah. Well, I've devoted my, my life and career to journalism. That's true. That's a good. It's a good point. It's a good question. I think. When I think about the things that I really love about SCI fi or fantasy stories, which is how I spent so much of my time as a consumer of literature film television. Everything conversations with my friends. Of course. I love the idea of dragons and dire wolves and waving your wand, and making anything that you won't possible. But the thing that I really love about those stories is tapping into something core about human nature. And so any great story can deliver that. And obviously the place that you're going to get that the, the, the most fully formed is something that is literally about confronting humanity and what people are willing to do to each other, and what they're willing to do, when they see what other people are willing to do to each other, and I was riveted every single second of this experience. Like I it's so upsetting and horrifying to watch that it doesn't feel like a normal thing to say, but I can't wait to watch it again. And part of that is because I think. To your point about how much you find out in the finale, actually, how much is sort of held back for this reveal even though it is real world history that we're talking about. And that's sort of like a contrary thing to say. I'm fascinated to then re rewatch it with that in mind. But also because it is just such a pitch perfect case study in some of the themes that I cherish so much. You know the idea of truth in lies. What is heroism, what kind of forms cannot really take when you're talking about storytelling, what is the role and power of image and narrative, and it's pretty hard right now in two thousand nineteen in the United States of America to watch her noble and not think about our current political system and the role of truth in lies in the narratives that unfold around us every day. And so that was interesting to, to simultaneously gain. Newfound understanding of this seismic is stork event and also like with any great story be able to apply it to something in your current life. Is it important that you learn things when you're watching something like this, because everything that you're talking about is the Matic, you know, it's, it's essentially emotional or intellectual. But it's not fact based per se, right? And you know, it's funny, we've been having this conversation in the office, a handful of us about sort of dad non-fiction, you know, the, the canon of handful. You and Kevin Clark and continue. No, there were a few more participants, but shadow to Brian Phillips, with, but there's small group of people that there's a sort of strand of, of culture and history books that are targeted at what we presume to be fifty five year old white guy in pleaded pants, who's just come off the golf course and received his Father's Day gift from his hopeful son or daughter, and inevitably that book is about a general in World War. One man is based on a world historical event more than likely. It's got a certain kind of, you know, pursuit of those some of those themes you're talking about heroism truth in lies, but there's something kind of stayed about it. I think tra- noble in some ways falls into this category. The and in fact, a lot of the series is based on a book, voices of tra- noble. But there's something somehow different about it for you personally. Do you are you the kind of questing for information? It will then bring that to the bar and tell everyone what you learned or is it much more of a televisual emotional experience. I think both and I think that one of the reasons that I really not only enjoyed the show, but thought it was such a grand achievement is because they clearly can be either of those things for you. And that's valid, however you choose to consume. It is valid, you know we we talked about this a bit over the weekend. I was so impressed by the show's handling of the science because I am just in the interest of candor, not a physicist, not a nuclear scientists talked, you ve lied on your resume can barely do math working together for five years. And I little did. I know. And so I was actually a little bit could -cerned about that heading nothing ever felt like a true barrier to entry, but you know you worry about both extremes. I think on the one hand is this going to be so dumbed down for the general viewing public that basically feels like it isn't real that you can't believe in who those characters are in the work that they're supposed to be doing because there's no way that people like that with talk that way about their work on the other extreme. Is it going to be so scientifically precise that it's totally alienating for somebody who for whom that's not there, there for an actor or something that they're comfortable with it all? And I thought that the show's ability to thread, the needle between those two things and allow you to understand with now I'm not implying that we're coming out of this as. Nuclear actually, deuce everyone physicists now. But the basic ability to comprehend what they were talking about what was happening without making it too complex or making it feel like they were condescending. And speaking in speaking, towns, you and I think that's a great trick. There was positioning, some of the other characters on the show in the same seat that the viewer was in, you know, and I think, I think, for example of one of the earlier scenes in the show when are I when I look gossip and Boris our first heading out there on the plane, and we gossip sketching his sketching this out, because Boris's demanding that he explained it to him, and the, the bullets analogy that was so instantly clarifying. Similarly, the trial in the finale, do we understand every single thing that was on all of those placards tiles? No, but they were colour coded, and the, the thing that was unambiguous was that balance was the key, and that wants you. You lost that you lost the ability to control the thing that needed to be controlled, and I just thought that okay I don't need to be coming to this as somebody who is, like inherently obsessed with the science or the facts, but I feel like I can grasp them, and then because I have that beasts comfort, I and then able to shift my focus of the things that I personally care more about the seems the characters the choices that they're making. And I think that if you probably are in the far extreme of carrying about the science. I'm sure that there are plenty of people out there who are like fact check on x y and z, and I think that one of the cool things is that the creators of not in any way imply that it is a note for note, faithful rendering of history, you know, that there are for, for example, the Yuan, a character is a composite of all these other scientists, and I think song, right? Saying that in the it was either the first or the second inside the episode feature at that the that we heard that and then it's also. Noted in the run through a fax at the end of the finale. So what about you? Well, I think that there's a brilliant storytelling choice that also happens to be true to history, which is that every single character who is not Lagoda for most of the film is completely ignorant to how any of this works.

"They're taking aim and killing dogs. I mean, is it true that what happened? And why is something like that? So important cinematic to put in a story, so it is true. And the there are quite a few men that had to do that job it wasn't just three guys. There was a lot of liquidators who were essentially ordered to go around the countryside, and kill these animals, because they were contaminated, and there was a fear of contamination. Why is it important? So as these episodes unfold time starts to stretch out the first episode takes place over essentially seven hours and the second one over a few days and the third one over weeks, and now in the fourth one, we're in months. And at some point turnover ceases to be an accident or disaster or a fire, and it becomes a war, where hundreds of thousands of men are sent to fight an enemy. They cannot see. And in war tragedies visited upon men, not simply because they themselves are wounded, or hurt but because they have to wound and they have to hurt. That is a scar that does not leave most of these men, and I wanted to show that it's not just radiation that gets you Chernobyl has essentially created a new war for all of these men, whose names and whose. Fates have not been recorded with your series. We've got huge audience by nineteen year old son and his high school classmate are fascinating about my dad who's almost ninety s obsessed with it. I think there's the Russian sports writer who's doing live recaps. Yeah. What has surprised you or satisfied, you about the reaction because it seems to be unusual. Honestly, it was a labor of love. And our hope especially, because it's for HBO. So it's not like it's Friday night. What's the box office? Right. It's HBO its prestige television. So what's everyone's goal for some people to watch it, and hopefully, those people appreciate it and find it fascinating I was not expecting this many people to watch it. I don't think it should be was either or sky over in the United Kingdom who co produced the show with, with HBO, and I was not expecting the extent to which people have shared my fascination. So you see, like in my mind. It's not like everyone's going, you did a great job mostly what I think they're saying, even if they're not in my mind, I, turn it into you have done a good job showing us something that fascinates us. It's noble. I think that fascinates more than anything else. Craig Mazin is the writer.

"He's made and lost some money like most successful business people have any managed to get elected president of the United States is first time out of the chute, but you're right, Steve, you're so much smarter. You wrote thinner, that glisten you're very talented writer. I read thinner. It's actually one of his lesser known. I enjoyed thinner, remember the guy that he gets cursed to lose weight, you know, it was a great book, but Steve, insulting demands intelligence, it's not getting anyone over to your side, I promise you that, but it goes, okay? So. I found out that what he why he was this is now this tweet was being celebrated by Craig Mazin, who's, like Stephen King. You'd wrote this. And I'm so glad you're watching this show, smartly. So I responded back to this guy. And I said, listen, why to Hollywood elitist continue to themselves on Twitter. Chernobyl was a failure of socialism, the exact up the government controls the means of production, but these act opposite of the Trump deregulatory tax cuts agenda. So this guy Mazen, who's producer noble, this, listen to what he writes, he says Chenobyl was a failure of humans whose loyalty to our fear broken governing governing party overruled, their sense of DC rationality. You're the old man with a cane, you just worship at different man's portrait taken a shot at me. In other words, for being some kind of Trump acolyte, which I am not support the president's conservative policies. Ladies and gentlemen, understand this. I'm not taking unnecessary shot at this guy. He's tweets go on and on. He promotes Trump fake news. And he hates us. Suggesting number one that I'm a socialist from the movie the old man with a cane. He's talking about is a socialist in the movie who puts potentially hundreds of thousands of lives at stake in Ukraine, Belarus, and elsewhere, by not acting early on. The disaster suggesting Amish socialist is. That's so dumb that I don't wanna waste you. It's really stupid. It does. It's not even worth entertain it is. It's so dumb for me to expound on it further would waste your time. I'm just gonna leave that part in there. But for this guy to do what every budding many tyrant, radical liberals done in human history, and excuse the system, socialism and blame it on. Well, this really is about socialism, MRs about human failures. Is. So unbelievably stupid that I looked at my wife last night and said that this guy Craig watch his own series. He's offended the guy who produced Chernobyl he's offended that conservatives like me. Schapiro and others have promote. He's offended that we promoted his series. So point, number one, you don't get to rewrite history because you did a historically relatively accurate television series on. He in other words, he and his tweet. I hope I'm not confusing and Joe because this one little. I want you to understand why I'm asking. I'm apologizing for promoting this now. I am. We should not ladies and gentlemen. We're in a culture war here. Okay. We are in a culture, war here and enriching these people and me promoting their stuff was foolish on my part. I owe you a sincere apology. I should've known better that this idiot did not actually want people to watch his stuff. I'll get to that a second. But the takeaway from this he then in his him and his Hollywood lunatics start to come after me after we got into that little spat there. Saying, how dare you attack the producer? He knows what his piece men. That's it's not what the peace meant. It is a historical recount of history. If you tell it, right. What actually happened? You don't get to interpret it another way. Let me give you a better example. Maybe an analogy at work here. Go ahead. If you're going to do a historically accurate retelling of the tyranny of Idi Amin, and Africa. And you do it accurately, you don't get to say later, while my interpretation is mean who was a bloody torture, as tyrant was really a decent guy who was doing the whole thing for the sake of God and country. And we're just kind of, you know, we're just putting this out there for you to see it. That's not what happened..

"Heads up. This episode will absolutely have some bad language, not apologizing just stating the facts. Hello and welcome. My name is John August. My name is Craig Mazin. And this is episode three eighty three of script. Nets a podcast about screenwriting and things that are interesting to screenwriters today in the podcast. We'll be talking about the trope of never split the party. And why in fact as a writer, you often want to in need to divide the party up? We'll talk about how to do that. And what you gain. Plus, we'll be answering listener questions on sequences working with an author screenwriter websites. And we have some umbrage fodder to kick off the new year. Happy new year happy new year, John we did it again. By the way, we made it through another loop around the sun. Yes. Longest loop around the sign in my memory. It was in many ways the most challenging and yet also rewarding year of my life. It was it was it was quite a thing. But there is something nice about arriving at the end. Because the the flat disc that is the earth has managed to kind of do this circle around when I presume is also a flat disk of the sun, and it just gives you a nice feeling of accomplishment. Even if you specifically haven't really done anything except stand still on the flat disc that is a beer. Yeah. You made a TV shelf thousand has to show feels great. We're, you know, trucking along they're getting close to show people, which will be fun. Although, you know, it's funny. I was talking to I won't say who but a famous filmmaker friend of ours. And we were saying how the dream the real dream is to make a television show or movie, and when it's finally done, and it is perfect. And you've got everything the way you want. It you show it to no one. You just put it away because it's like. It's the showing of it. I'll tell you with the nines that movie I made with mental supposed McCarthy, I kind of feel like I did that because I really happy with the buoy and no one saw him. So it wasn't a deliberate choice to have no one see the movie, it's sort of worked out that way. We'll let can have them to sort of involuntary lock awareness. But I tell you that the project to them taking out directing next, I really had visioned it as sort of indie feature sort of more on the destroyer model. And and now just like you did what baby I'll just make it for Netflix because Netflix that list. It's just it's out there in the world all at once. Everyone can see it, and then you're done and that'll be trouble. Everyone will see it all at once. Well, they'll see episode I episode, but the whole world can see it the the and the whole world would within some reasonable limitation. Yep. Can see it which you know. But at least I don't know there's something about television. I suppose that's I don't know why that's a little more acceptable to me in this regard because it's like opening. Weekend. There's a thing in movies. It's like you feel like there's a blade that's swinging towards your neck. It's all maker break. And then intelligence like, you know, cheers, and Seinfeld. I think we're both like the lowest rated television shows of their debut season. And then, you know, then you kinda come around. But in movie terms, your it's just feels like you're always under the gun. So I like this new like this new kind of relax TV deal..

"It's always a challenge when you're working on a book or an out of his TV show or another movie is you have to recognize what is it about that thing that works? So well, what is the at the core fundamental idea? And how do you preserve that while recognizing that almost everything else may need to change in order for it to make sense? Angels. Corwin is premiering his red star racer at the California speedway. We should plan to hidden camera on Corwin. Off to the races angel. With something. Charlie's angels. I had to look at sort of. What was it about Charlie's angels and spoke to me so much? Why did I love it so much and in talking to drew Barrymore who's producing it? We really focused on the feeling of angels in history. Help out we were of them. They could be incredibly good at their jobs, but incredible dorks author job. So once he found the tone of it, then we could work on all the really difficult stuff is like will. How are we going to service these three characters and a plot villain and a twist and all the mystery of the show. Team rebuilding the office be better than new by the time. You get back. Thank you.

The best thing about screenwriting is the process making movies incredibly collaborative. The worst thing is that it's incredibly collaborative. You can have the best one tensions in the best ideas and the best script on a page, but that's not the final product. And so I think sometimes people ascribe blame shoe the writer when it was really other forces than sort of caused a movie, but it came to be sometimes people don't give enough credit shoot screenplay that the screenplay is the master plan for what is going to be.
