Writing this new screenplay at break neck speed. The objective with this new one is to shop it around and get investor interest especially since the last deal didn't go through with my previous screenplay.

It's alright, though. After this, I'm gonna start a short film prep and then we're gonna have the balls to do a feature length feature shot entirely in my friend's apartment. It's gonna be... interesting.

So there's a Lethal Weapon tv show in the works.
And yes, do it: groan at the thought. I know I did. After the tv version of Rush Hour came out, I couldn't help but facepalm so hard my eyes flew out the back of my head, and I almost did the same with this.
But god help me... this one actually looks pretty damn decent.

While the Rush Hour tv show tried its damnedest to simply recreate the source material with all the same "I'm super black, and your English is terrible!" jokes (which make no sense, because the guy's English was really good), this one just seems to take the original concept and go its own way. Half-suicidal loose cannon cop paired up with an older, by-the-book cop. The basic elements in the setup are there, but it doesn't seem to be aping the old Gibson/Glover chemistry, which is great; just like with Jackie Chan and Chris Tucker, you just can't recreate that shit. You have to do something different to be any good.
And the actors here are actually pretty great. I've always held Damon Wayans (and his son, who's pretty fucking likable in his own right) to be not only the least-irritating of the Wayans family, but a genuinely good screen presence, especially as he's gotten older. And the guy playing Riggs, Clayne Crawford, has been pretty fucking good in everything I've seen him in. Most notably The Baytown Outlaws, which ain't the greatest flick in the world, but it certainly showcases his gift for snappy dialogue and stuff like that. I like him.
So yeah, shockingly... actually looking forward to this.

Hopefully it's just the trailer, but it seems to be doing exactly what you're describing OL, lifting lines straight out of Lethal Weapon 1, story beats seem to be the same, and they look like they are trying to play off the Gibson/Glover chemistry exactly how it is in the movies. And the music, dear god man, the music is half of Lethal Weapon. Those movies, at least the first two, have such a good atmosphere... but this? This doesn't exactly scream Lethal Weapon to me -- other than being a bad copycat. I may be slightly biased, since Lethal Weapon 2 is a top five all time favorite of mine, but this looks horrible to me.

Hope I'm wrong, but from the trailer, I can't exactly say I'm excited.

Can't fucking wait. I doubt it goes to theaters here but it will still be amazing.

I just found out about these (admittedly in a thread about how annoying it is that people make these) and thought it would be fun to put my own together. It's supposed to be your nine favorite anime (for whatever reason) in a 3X3 grid.

` Cross Game
` Kimagure Orange Road
` Macross Plus

` One Piece

` Mobile Suit Zeta Gundam

Tried to make it so it looked like Bulma was crushin' hard on Char :lol:

^^Good god, that was irritating. If he was trying to make a point about something, I was never able to reach it. All I was able to reach was the conclusion that if I ever see him in real life, he's getting punched in the dick.

Holy smokes man, Richard Ashcroft has a new album and I didn't even know! How can someone go under the radar for so damn long and then come back into the scene within a matter of 3 months + had a concert in the country without me knowing? >:-( very annoying! I use to check often for updates for years but I haven't since last January and that sucks so bad! :-( only found out today via Amazon Prime advert and I was like "what???"
