After a break away from writing while applying for more bursaries and trying to find jobs, this week I have dusted off some old ideas.
One is an update of a much loved British 1960s television show. In the past, this has be risky territory for the movie business, with The Avengers, The Saint and Thunderbirds reimaginating all taking a critical beating and floundering at the box office. But something about the one I am working on really makes me think that it could work for a modern audience.
Currently it sits at about 20 pages into the process, and so far feedback received on the concept behind it as been great.
Obviously, at this early stage, with no rights secured I need to be protective about the source material.
After an initial draft is complete I will be creating a treatment and some supporting documents and making an approach for the rights to use the characters and other names used throughout the show.
