Glee's Jane Lynch and ABC's Man Up! Christopher Moynihan in "Scribes"



You'll see in this "sizzle reel" that actress Jane Lynch ('The 40 Year Old Virgin', 'Glee') plays the part of a studio head that we actually pitched and sold a film to. Everyone has their guesses as to who the character is based on...(in the real meeting, Diane Keaton was in the pitch with us, as she was attached as actress and producer). The dialog in the short film "Hiding In Walls", which "Scribes" is based on, was almost verbatim!

When we sold the pitch, we were baffled by what the studio head had liked, as he/she hadn't really understood the story we were telling AND had odd interpretations about the whole idea. As we stood outside in the parking lot, Diane lamented, "I don't know what they just bought...I'm just glad I don't have to write it!" As it turned out nobody did and the project crashed and burned just about the time the studio chief was fired. Look for our buddy Machete star DANNY TREJO turning in a comedy cameo, as well!

WALT DISNEY'S OFFICE RESTORED!

Old Animation Building: FINALLY, Walt's original office that he used up until his death, will be restored to the exact condition (including furniture and personal belongings) it was in when he roamed these halls. Through the years the office was given to producers and directors with deals at Disney. Some who were very respectfull of the world they were occupiyng…others, not so much. The last inhabitant wouldn't let them use the office to film Saving Mr. Banks​. He wouldn't even allow them to use it for reference. Pretty much the last straw for the studio, who are doing what should have been done years ago. A living monument to the man who built this place and changed an entire industry. I spoke with one of the workers who was hauling a big bag of plaster and he said, "I get the chills sometimes when I'm working in there". Wouldn't we all...



"Tinker Bell And The Great Fairy Rescue"

This trailer is just the tip-of-the-iceberg of what this film has become! We're really looking forward to having it released this time next year! We knew when Award winning actor, Michael Sheen ('Frost/Nixon' and 'The Queen'), joined the already all-star cast, this would be a special project. Thanks to John Lasseter, Andrew Millstein, Brad Raymond and all of the incredibly talented people at Disney...and of course Pixar! Release date, Fall 2010!

New writing gig..."Tinker Bell 3"

This is a very special character that has a lot of history and expectations to uphold. We're having a blast already.
