That’s right. Friday the 13th in space.Did putting him there make sense? NO! But it made money! And far more money than I charged for my services. I can even do it on an actor by actor basis. Somebody said to me, “Jim, I really like Sam Rockwell as an actor, but I’m not sure what to do with him.”
I put him in Moon—endless Sam Rockwells.
I watched Ocean’s Eleven and said, “Hmm. I’m gonna add some outer space.”
Clooney in Gravity, Damon in The Martian, Pitt in Ad Astra.
And, bonus, Gravity was originally a biopic about Isaac Newton told from the perspective of the apple. That’s killing two planets with ONE asteroid! I bet you’ve heard that old de debate about Die Hard, right? Is it a Christmas movie? Well I made it a space movie.
The Fifth Element!
Now settle down! Settle down folks! I’m here today for ALL of you. We’re gonna send them all to space! Well, except for you comic book fellas. You all just hang in the back and we’ll talk after. You’ve pretty much sent everyone from Batman to Bazooka Joe to space.
Thanks for your time, everyone!
Just remember what Jim Hapscomb of Topdown Creekriver, Indiana always says! “Shoot for the Moon! If you miss, I’ll put your script in the STARS!!”
