with my favorite prose writer, Neil Gaiman, about his upcoming $4 million movie with Dave McKean, Mirrormask
, and how special effects are changing what you can envisage in a script. Zemeckis told him "there's nothing you and Roger Avary can write that will cost more than $1 million per minute to shoot. Which is pretty cool to think about.
I'm dying to read Anansi Boys.
It's not out for another five days, but who's counting?
So theoretically, a 90 minute movie can cost $90m if they do full CGI, plus some for the director etc. with any effect you want, so to speak.
So, will this mean for the big action films, they will have more money to spend on their big stars?
Or, will it mean that the price for stars might come down if you can do most of the movie in CGI and put virtually any good up & coming actor in it?
Graphics are getting unbelievable.
