My apologies for the long gap in posts about the Pooch Café movie. Things have been moving slowly, but moving nicely. I was hard at work since last spring (!) on the treatment. The producer – an 800 pound Hollywood gorilla with an epic track record (“he’s so hot right now”) – was a tough taskmaster, but we formed a little mutual-admiration club of two, and produced a story that seems to hit all the right marks.
I then spent the last few months doing a first draft of the screenplay. To say it was a joy is an understatement. I plunged myself into it. Gone were the sensations of hunger, thirst, the need to pee; I think I kept inhaling and exhaling but who the hell knows. Big thanks to my girlfriend for handling the X-mas list. And feeding me.
By New Years I had a completed first draft. And I’m delighted to report that it was met with big enthusiasm from the Sony team.
Next up: another experienced writer is being brought in to work on it some more. They’ve got some good talent in mind, and Sony seems quite keen on keeping the Pooch vision we’re all enjoying, so I’m very much looking forward to more creative input and watching it continue to evolve. More to come.
