Over at io9 they’re asking if the new animated film Igor will have an audience.
Lessee, a film about a sidekick whose only goal in life is to become an Evil Scientist, and the cast list includes Johns Cleese and Cusack, Arsenio Hall, AND Eddie Izzard?
YES! That audience would be ME!
I think there should be more pitch meetings where the studios ask “What does Mary Sue want in a film?” and then deliver. The last movie that did that was Dragon Wars. Never heard of it? There’s a reason.
BUT THEY DESTROY DOWNTOWN LA! WITH DRAGONS! WHO EAT HELICOPTERS! I LAUGH AND LAUGH MANIACALLY! BWAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAA!
So, to sum up: I should be CEO of Pitching for all film companies, everywhere. Also? Igor is going to be v. v. awesome.
