Really hope this film comes to pass.

So many films are announced that don’t manage to make it. My favourite painter so would love to see this as a film. Generally enjoyed the Toby Jones play of a couple of years ago that was at the Arcola Theatre and hopefully any film would have the scale that Turner demands.


new project

October 18, 2012

Working on a new spec project that I envisage as a TV drama series of three or four 60 minute dramas. I had what I thought was a great title, Cuckoo until I saw a trailer for a BBC sitcom with the same name a few weeks ago. Not actually seen the series. I’ve now got alternative not as good titles. Nice scene planned to start with tomorrow and then onto to character bible/profiles. What do you mean that’s the wrong way round?
