I've got a new movie to add to the coming-soon must-see list (that now includes The Fountain, The Prestige, The Science Of Sleep, Stranger Than Fiction, and The Departed).

Children of Men - this is one of those trailers that gives you the chills. Wow, can't freaking wait for this one. Click this to experience it. (The Sigor Ros music certainly helps, but still, it looks amazing).

In other news, my last draft of Food Fight went over wonderfully, just a few more weeks and we're going to get it to some agents (bigtime agents, Endeavor, ICM, we'll see) and after that? Who knows. I've got a damn good feeling about it though. Cricket Hill Pilot is just about lokced down, I'm finishing Act 4 this weekend.

By the way, I love the idea of Heath Ledger as The Joker in the upcoming gonna-kick ass movie, The Dark Knight. Nolan knows what he's doing.

Yeah, I saw that trailer too. Looks cool.

Congrats on all the writing stuff. It sounds like you're on your way.

What's with all these cool movies coming out?

There are like a half a dozen must see movies in the pipeline.

Just saw this over at Inside Pitch blog and wondered if it was yours?

"FOOD FIGHT is a family comedy about a fastidious celebrity chef who volunteers to teach children how to cook."

Anthony Bourdain meets The Pacifier?

No way, sir, not mine.

I must say that I'll be happy to beat that script into the amrketplace.

Although there is ANOTHER Food Fight coming, animated, posibly in 2007.

Tom - It's exciting, and if these movies are good, that'd be even better!

I'm really not sure about Heath as The Joker. He just seems too...PRETTY. He is a good actor though, and maybe that will be enough to override my doubts. Well, that and the makeup for the character. They'll need to do something significant to replace crazy Jack Nicholson in my mind!

Gotta admit the trailer looks good & I agree with you on some of the choices you made. Science of Sleep is a must-see for me.
