A Foot Without A Sock

New readers might not know the plot of Black Mass, the latest script I wrote for the Polonia Brothers, so I might mention that it's basically a World War II-era feature about a group of soldiers sent to blow up a Nazi tank factory, only to stumble across an evil entity released by the Nazi's occult tampering. And then yesterday I find this, in the Hollywood Reporter:

Matt LeBlanc will make a return to the big-screen in the sci-fi thriller The Watch. Based on a original screenplay by John Claflin and Daniel Zelman, the World War II-set film revolves around a team of highly specialized soldiers sent to blow up a Nazi fuel depot, only to discover they are being hunted by an evil spirit unleashed by the Nazi's secret occult experiments. Matt will also produce.

I guess it's time to start wearing that tinfoil hat again.

Give me a shout at

I saw that same article and now have come to the realization that Hollywood has run out of ideas and are now ripping off the indie guys. I wonder if there is any chance that the Polonias can sue?

Isn't that amazing?

I cannot tell you how many times that has happened to me. In high school my friends and I wrote a story called Lonely Time which was a LOT like Terminator. Later, I wrote a seven part movie serial called The Demon Files right before The X Files came out. Those are just a few examples, but it happens to me quite a bit.

The only solace I've been able to gather from such experiences is the knowledge that I'm somehow connected to the cosmic creative thread.

Don't worry about the other movie though... I mean it has Matt LeBlanc in it... I doubt it will be taken seriously.

It's just one of those sour coincidences. But we'll be first to market!
