Some happy Pooch movie news today: after an extensive search for a screenwriter to do a rewrite of my first draft of the script, Sony has finally settled on someone: (ahem) it’s me! Lift your music-maker high, fair Droolia!
The general response (it is my understanding) of other screenwriters they approached was that they didn’t want to risk messing up the unique world that already existed on the pages. The producer, who is a big supporter of what I’ve written thus far, helped convince Sony that I was the right guy for the job. I gotta say, I’m bursting with delight, not only that I get to continue to help build the Pooch vision, but also that I am now officially a professional Hollywood screenwriter, which is a dream I’d nurtured back in the Die Hard, Ferris Bueller, Dirty Rotten Scoundrel days. I’ve been given some excellent notes from the studio, (not a big surprise, they do in fact make movies for a living). And so now, to work. Or to daydreaming. Which despite what my algebra teacher said, has turned out for the moment to be the same thing.
