Things quieting down --

I've been busy over at the Alan Rodgers Experience -- that's going to quiet down soon, I'm most of the way through documenting how he killed his infant son. I wrote a chunk of the Star Wars post I mentioned, last night, and that should be up later today.

The television pilot I wrote is called "All Possible Worlds," about the Revolt of the Angels -- it's set in the same universe as "A Moment in Time," for those of you who ever read that script. There's a pilot script that's gotten good responses, and a 40 page outline that's gotten reviews ranging from "blown away" -- from a guy who's been on the Board of Directors of the Director's Guild -- to Matt Stover, who I like a lot because he likes my stuff and is a bona fide badass, for a writer: "Jesus WEPT, man -- this is so good I just don't believe you can possibly get it made" -- to a producer who loved the pilot script and was so freaked out by the outline that he backed off the project. :-) So we're looking for a new producer, but I'm sure we'll attach one. Looking at Adam Baldwin to play the lead, and looking for an unknown athletic 6-foot tall 20 year old girl to play his daughter, Jake Two Knives, The Destroyer of Worlds ...

Dude, if you can get Adam Baldwin on it, I'm coming down and harassing you for an introduction. (For that matter, if you get him to do an audition, and you foolishly let me know about it, I'll still be there. :))

For the daughter, I'm sure you can find an unknown who can meet the bill. (I find myself thinking of a line from Beverly Hills Cop II: "Six foot tall blondes grow on trees here.")

I'm not going to ask Adam Baldwin to audition; I've seen him act. I'm just going to ask him if he'll read the script, and if he's interested -- then he's attached, as far as I'm concerned.

I didn't post all of Matt Stover's rave about APW, since it seemed immodest, and I need to work on that. But he also described APW as "twice as good as Firefly" ... which is probably not possible, but is the nicest thing anyone's said about it yet.

And yeah, the six foot tall blonde line crosses my mind frequently, thinking about Jake Two Knives.

For those of you not familiar with Stover's writing (he writes as Matthew Woodring Stover), go taste some. I got my copies of Iron Dawn and Jericho Moon at Powells, and I'd guess they have more in stock.

Oh, and A Moment in Time totally rocks. There's a copy on line here:
