Finding The Zone

Things appear to be on track for the Wild Cards right deal to land.  We just need to makes a few more copies.  I’m going to try and help Pat with that on Monday.  So feeling more confident I went back to the movie.  Returning to it meant I spent a day putting myself in the world (not too hard because I’ve been doing it with my Wild Card Story for Lowball) but it’s a different medium, and so it felt like starting a cold diesel engine.

Yesterday things started to roll, and today has been great.  I’m liking how the dialog is sketching in things about a relationship that will have big ramifications down the line.  It’s hard to deliberately make thins work on several levels.  It can feel forced and “on-the-nose”, but when it comes naturally you feel for a brief, shining moment that you are a genius.

Now it’s time to segue over to LOWBALL and have Franny recruit his team of heroes except they are the gang that can’t shoot straight.

    Congratulations, Melinda! I’m not usually the type to get pumped about a movie when it’s in such early stages of development, but “Wild Cards” is an exception. It’s cool to hear about the process at this early stage.

    Question: Is it too early to ask about which authors have contributed to Lowball?

  • Melindas says:

    Thanks for the kind words, Jason.

    I see no reason not to mention the writers. Me, Michael Cassutt, David Anthony Durham, David Levine, Mary Anne Mohanraj, Ian Tregillis, Walter Jon Williams, and Carrie Vaughn.

    I’m not much given to envy…but I would love to be in the room working on a Wild Cards movie. I’m very, very excited to see what you do.
