- After coming back from Switzerland, I wrote another Lifetime Network movie - my 4th for them in just a couple of years.
- CHEAP THRILLS came out on DVD in the States and the UK.
- I wrote another script entitled 68 KILL, which is based on a book that I optioned from an immensely talented novelist named Bryan Smith (follow Bryan on Twitter). I'm really happy with the way the first draft came out and so is Bryan … most surprisingly, my wife, Lynh, really likes it (and she's my toughest critic)! The plan is to raise the financing and make this my sophomore directorial effort. Stay tuned … I'm working on Draft #2 now …
- Then I took the boys to Indiana to visit my folks for 10 days. While there, I wrote another draft of "Lifetime Movie #4"
- While in Indiana, I got to witness the World Premiere of Lifetime Network Movie #3, KILLING DADDY. I watched it for the first time with everybody else, and was pleased with the outcome. The movie did pretty well, too - it was the #2 most-viewed program the night it aired (behind a NASCAR race) with 1.5 million viewers.
- I came home for less than two weeks then headed to the east coast for a family vacation. While I was there, I did some work on a big top-secret project that I've been working on for a few months. All I can say at this juncture is that it's a video game. A really big video game that will come out on all gaming formats. I'll be able to talk more about this thing when it comes out sometime between now and the end of 2014. Stay tuned.
- Just got home a few days ago. Working on some more stuff now that isn't far enough along to discuss yet. Tomorrow I'm shooting a Kickstarter video for KILLJOY'S PSYCHO CIRCUS. A few meetings scheduled, etc.
- In the meantime, AMERICAN MUSCLE's release date has been announced - it comes out September 30th. Also, THE PACT 2 comes out on VOD September 5th.
So that's what I've been doing since the last update 3 months ago: wrote 2 scripts and worked on a video game and went on vacation. And now I'm back to the grind.
Does anybody even read this damned blog? I don't know. Maybe I'll post more stuff here in less than 3 month's time … Maybe I'll include photos next time. Or maybe I'll just switch completely over to Twitter, where I can just burp out stuff in tiny increments … We'll see.
Either way, thanks for visiting.
