okay guys, we have a plan.
that plan, for anyone curious about what the original dark shadows screenplay was like, is to email john august and just casually ask if it will ever be available to read.
Uh…so you know how everyone was up in arms about how August’s script was SOOOOO much better and Seth butchered it? The Godfather? Yeah that sounds like Dark Shadows.
Can we just talk about how this is the cutest fucking thing EVER! This is my new icon. I call dibs!
It’s strange to hear a statement of surrender from her. At least, that’s how Vicki takes it. How she has to take it. The last thing she can think of is the fact that Julia might use this to her advantage of any sort, to manipulate her, to ruin the happiness that she’s only just managed to realize tonight.
(this is my disclaimer telling you guys not to read this unless you’re ~of age and stuff because legal things wow i am not used to saying this.)
Ladies and Gentlemen…this fic is the very definition of excellent smut. Sexy, but not a single use of the phrase “Oh fuck Baby.” Writers take note. Bravo Alicia Bravo!!!
…Chloe and Bella both totally audition for the Carrie Remake…I mean lets be real…we knew how that was going to turn out. Props to Bella for her crazy Wyndcliff face though…she could totally terrorize a prom. I gotta say though…from what I’ve seen Chloe is kicking ass.
Well that was anticlimactic. They even referred to MORE cut scenes. Seriously? Also wtf was that Vicki/Carolyn scene? Did we watch the same movie?
Because I had a bad day and I need to live vicariously through Julia and Naomi.
Never in my life have I encountered such nasty caddy uncalled for behavior between people in a fandom.
Damn! I’m really very upset because I discovered that Eva and Bella would be asking too much to make the film, so they decided that only one still in the story, according to some they have decided to take Angelique of the history, since for them Victoria was more…
I can’t, my friends gave me the source, and I had to beg almost 2 months for them to believe in me and give me the link, luckily they believed, cann’t betray their confidence, sorry I swore to them that I would not talk to anyone and I mean, if they know I’m telling they would kill me. This is like a “state secret” for them.Sorry
Then can I ask how your friends acquired this supposed source? It can’t be something straight from the studio, because people could easily lose their jobs by letting plot details and business negotiations like this leak out to anyone. This sounds a lot like rumor-spreading and speculation, and it’s not really a good idea to post stuff like this without something solid to back it up.
That’s why they asked me not to say anything, and besides the website that posted, all the time is changing the URL. They just know it because are obsessed with Tim Burton movies. Really, they’re obsessed.Remember: I said it’s still just a rumor.
I actually have google alerts set up for Dark Shadows, and I’ve heard absolutely nothing. The only reason I ask is because you’re posting very, very specific plot details and money dealings - things that should only be known to the studios at this point. I just don’t want you or anybody else to get their hopes up. Nobody should have any information on a sequel (including plot details; if this is true, it’s almost certain they’d have to get a new writer after all the drama this script went through, and the fact that no one liked the one written by Seth Grahame-Smith) until the turn of the year at the earliest.
I’m not trying to be mean or harsh, and I’d love it if this were true (seriously, I spend more time than I should thinking about a sequel - which is why I’m going to write my own), but right now, it’s a little shaky. :|
I have to back Alicia up on this. I’m convinced someone has been severely misinformed. I too have Google Alerts and haven’t heard anything. Tim himself has stated he had no intention of making a sequel and has all but confirmed there won’t be one.
Best thing about putting movies on you’re iPad yourself? You can chose the superior poster art.
Ok I made this randomly capping and can we just…I mean look at this.
IT’S OFFICAL! WE ARE GETTING ALL THE CUT SCENES PEOPLE! WARNER BROS SMILES ON US THIS DAY!
…well most of the cut scenes.
So I figured I should probably do a blog entry of sorts for better future recollection. Here we go…
So this was my very first DS festival and I can’t imagine it being more perfect! Carl and Jeff dear friends I’ve come to know through Facebook flew in Friday morning (I took Friday off work.) and we did a bit of touristing since it was Jeff’s first trip to NYC. We saw Phantom which was lovely as always. After which we headed straight to Grand Central and hopped on the train to Tarrytown. I being the ridiculous nerd I am of course had to have a window seat and listen to Nights in White Satin on the way to Collinwood. We arrived just after midnight and were in bed by 1.
Saturday morning we were up and in the lobby at 10. I met the boys and sure enough three lovely ladies were set up with tables. These ladies were of course Marie Wallace, Kathryn Leigh Scott, and Lara Parker. I was a total chicken and got a little shaky when I saw Lara. While I worked up my courage we worked our way and around and had a lovely talk with Marie. I was happy to thank her for my facebook birthday wishes! I shared a few kind words from Kathryn. When she personalized my photo she seemed to have a lightbulb moment and she asked “What’s your last name?” I told her and she replied “Ah so you’re the one who posts in the site! So we’ll be seeing these photos posted?” Naturally the answer was “Aboslutely!” We moved on down. Lara had gathered the most attention and when we finally got up to her much to my relief she started our conversation. “Did you just get that done? It looks a little red.” Lara said to me. Of course with my luck changing my nose ring had irritated the piercing. I giggled like a moron still a bit star struck. She was very kind. As we took in her table she assured us we didn’t have buy anything. It was really sweet actually. I had decided I wanted to dress fancy for the Fest and Lara seemed to notice. “You know that shirt looks see through? From far away it looks like you’re naked under that lace. I kept looking over at you.” she said. I again giggled not knowing what to say. I purchased by photos and made my way around the table into the chair next to her for a photo op. She asked me “So are you going to put a diamond in that?” meaning my nose. “My mother keeps telling me I need one!” I told her. “Well I’m a mother!” she replied. I couldn’t help byatt smile. As we moved in for the photo she looked over and tilted my head the other direction with her hand. “No no turn your head the OTHER way so they can see your nose!” She was giggling like a little kid by this point. She was just hilarious in general. “See what a good mood I’m in? Just wait until tomorrow afternoon!” She then made a bit of a monster gesture. We all laughed. So we were able to get some more leisurely one on one time with them at the hotel. Before the actual festival which was really really nice. We were grateful for it later on. We had breakfast and didn’t end up making it to Lyndhurst until around Noon. We were in line to register for over an hour and we took turns checking out the merch in the carriage house while we waited. I scored quite a bit of swag over the weekend. Of course spent more than I intended.
We eventually registered and made our way into the tent and watched a bit of the auction. Jeff and I were really desperate to see inside Lyndhurst so we left and toured the mansion and took photos while Sharon Smyth spoke (which I’m still sad I missed). We made it back in time for Marie Wallace. She, and KLS, Jerry Lacy and Lara all spoke. Followed by a video on Burton Shadows, and some lovely tributes to Jonathan from family and friends which had me in tears. By this time it was pouring rain outside. We caught a bit of House of Dark Shadows and decided to roam the grounds a bit more post downpour. We made it back time for “CCCLLLLAAAARRRRKKKK!!!!” my favorite part of HODS. We stuck around for about half of Night and then headed back to the Hotel and ordered pizza and then bed.
By Sunday we had heard rumors Nancy Barrett was making an appearance and our programs confirmed it. We were in line to get into the ballroom for a good 45 minutes or more. We all had gift bags at our tables that were a hell of a lot better than I was expecting. We all received key chains, the 2012 DS calendar, Dan Curtis’ Dracula, and best of all very VERY nice versions of the Barnabas ring! The luncheon was delicious. We ate while they raffled door prizes and KLS and Lara spoke again. They auctioned a trip to the tower room at Lyndhurst and we were then treated to a lovely and tear jerking performance by Jerry Lacy and none other than Nancy Barrett reuniting as Tony Peterson and Carolyn Stoddard once again. As they danced at the end of the performance I don’t think there was a dry eye in the house. After this there were more auctions and then we all made our way back out to the lobby and got in line for autographs. After an hour we finally made it in to Nancy Barrett’s table. She was lovely and sweet and teased Carl a little which was fun. He had asked her to make out the autograph in his girlfriends name. When he thanked her she playfully replied “You’re welcome…Rachel.” We all got a good laugh out of that. We spoke with Jerry Lacy. They had shown a the trailer for a new film a friend of ours was directing he, Lara, and KLS are starring in. Ansel told him we were coming. When we dropped Ansel’s name his first words were “Which one of you is Brooke?” So that was cool. We had a lovely chat with him. Then on to Sharon. I was happy to be able to than her for my birthday Facebook message. We ate dinner at the diner across the street and chatted it up with a few fellow fans. Then it was back to the city. All around a fantastic first Fest. Sounds like next year the festival might just be a cruise. Sounds like a better start saving.
