Wikileaks reveals the GMG remakes
« on: March 20, 2017, 11:16:49 AM »
Wikileaks reveals that several GMGers are working screenplays. All are remakes! 
I guess it's not surprising: if you need at least three recordings of Bantock's Hudibras you won't be satisfied with just one version of Casablanca.

Here they are, with working titles and tag-lines.

Karl Henning
City Lights Done Right
Sascha Baraon-Cohen and CGI strut their stuff!

Florestan
The Romanian Falcon
Because Romanians invented falconry.

Mahlerian
The Posttonal Man Always Rings Twice
Twelve actors in twelve scenes.

orfeo
Lyre, Lyre
Could you tell the truth, and play a small harp, for 24 hours?

Cato
Grumble In The Bronx
Jackie Chan takes on dangling participles.

GhostSonata
La Grande Parade
Still silent, but silent in French.

Sarge
The Life of Havergal
Only a brilliant composer denies his brilliance!

MirrorImage
The Man With a Thousand Faces
A remake of Avatar


Are there any others in development?

Unfortunately it's stuck in development hell due to unresolved issues.  ;)

Mr. Cool Returns

Tagline: There’s always room in the ground for more dead bodies.

Short description of movie: International assassin Mr. Cool returns to Stockton City only to find himself in an unfortunate dilemma of making a hit for ’The Big Boss' but the target turns out to be his current girlfriend. What will he do? Kill or be killed?

Possible movie poster idea: Mr. Cool with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth with a 9mm Beretta with a silencer in his right hand looking out the window in a half-lit bedroom with his girlfriend in the background with a wet towel wrapped around her body.

Not just yes, but hell yes!  We're in post-production now, working to make it even more silent.  In French.

The Life of Havergal

Cheer up, Brian. You know what they say.
Some things in life are bad,
They can really make you mad.
When you're chewing on life's gristle,
Don't grumble, give a whistle!
And
Always look on the Goth side of life!

"hey, they made a movie about
Mahler, you ought to go see it.
he was as f*cked-up as you are."
