Ross had only been in Cannes for an hour when he phoned me asking for scripts! He'd had a meeting with a fairly famous producer (this is all a bit up in the air at the moment so I won't mention any names) who wanted to see some work. The problem is he wants to see it next week as he's got a couple of days put aside to read scripts. Problem two is we don't have any scripts yet. Problem three is I'm away next weekend at a wedding and was busy this weekend just gone, so I've essentially got four evenings and potentially bank holiday Monday to write a feature from scratch.
Except that's ludicrous and nothing produced in that time would be any good, so I suggested instead writing three treatments with three accompanying script samples - two based on Ross's ideas and one of my own. It's still a lot of work and may come to nothing, but it's work that needs to be done at some point anyway so I'm going ahead with it. I'll let you know how it went next week.
