Lanes, Stone Walls & Graveyards

The progress on the heist/horror has been unsatisfying. Months ago we were all certain we could do better than the scripts we received – and we will have to do better, no point in investing too much energy into a bad script – but it sure ain’t easy to learn this here screenwriting craft. Respect to all the writers out there!

Anyway, Ben went on holiday to the Cotswolds recently and came back bubbling with inspiration – he wants to put ghosts amongst the country lanes, resurrect The Hound of the Baskervilles or The Woman in Black. Apparently going out into the country is creepy for someone who grew up in London.

So looks like we’re going to slow down the heist movie and start to focus on a ghost story instead. Can’t wait to see what emerges!
