Ah, Baltimore--what can be said about that city that hasn't already been said? Nothing. So we move on.
In preparing the treatment for "Road House 3--Back to Basics" I'm trying to think of the right creative influences for such an anticipated film. Lately, I've been catching up with the old Hitchcock films ("Frenzy", reviewed previously, was a great one, and "Rope" was pretty good too) so I'm thinking we might "Hitchcock" it up with this Patrick Swayze vehicle. Throw in an attack by some birds, a housewife who kills her husband with a hunk of meat and then serves the meat to the investigating officers, maybe even one of the bouncers keeps getting messages from his "mother" who tells him to kill again! All I can say is, this sequel to "Road House" will be full of twists and turns. Audiences will wonder how the tale of Dalton got so dark.
In casting news, Christian Bale won't return our letters. Fuck him. We don't need his dickheadery messing up our picture anyway. We want Oscar calibre performers only! Hellen Mirren, this is your chance for film immortality!
