Projects take a long time to come together in Hollywood, and sometimes they take even longer in the independent world, so we writers rush to get them written and then we wait forever to see them made. These are a few things I have written that haven’t been made yet – some are waiting to greenlight, and some of them are getting crispy in good old Development Hell…
THE RESURRECTION OF GAVIN STONE
Gavin Stone is a washed-up former child star whose community service hours at a local church lead him to playing Jesus in a local Passion Play. It’s a comedy with heart that will be directed by Dallas Jenkins in early 2015.
WELCOME TO SKARY
This is one that has been a long-term love. Based on the novel BOO by Rene Gutteridge, it’s a quirky comedy about a horror novelist whose new friendships with the local pastor and town sweetheart force his tourist trap home (Skary, Indiana) into a fight for its very existence. Come join us at the book series Facebook page for a few peeks into the project, and be sure read all these fun books!
DOUBLE O DAD
A big, fun family comedy about a stay-at-home dad who is recruited by the CIA to spy on his mother-in-law, whom they think is a foreign operative. This has been the little spec that could.
There are a few more rattling around out there. I hope to add them to this list soon!
