I'm up for a crash rewrite gig -- they start prepping on Monday
, which ironically is the day I'm supposed to meet the star/writer, producer/writer and director to talk about how to approach a rewrite which, ideally, would also be done on Monday.
I hope I can get together with at least some of these good folks before the meeting, because jumping into a meeting without prior info, where everyone may possibly not be on the same page, not knowing exactly how much time they have for me to do the job in, where some of the people in the room have done drafts of the script -- I think the US Army has a term for it, and it rhymes with "fuster cluck."
It's the sort of script that has many good things going for it but needs focus, and choices, fast. And, lots of screenwriting craft.
Should be fun though. If, indeed, I'm their guy, and this is not an audition...
