It’s been a while since we last recorded, so before our grand return to the Elevator, Tam brings his pitch from the live show earlier this year: a sequel to his Mexploitation remake starring Legendary Luchador El Santo.
In this week’s season finale, Tam retells one of his abandoned pitches: an adaptation of ‘Doctor Sleep’, Stephen King’s 2013 ‘The Shining’ sequel novel.
Wumi learns about the Psychic life of Danny Torrence, Deeby can’t stop referencing The Simpsons, and Tam really doesn’t want his pitch to turn into a Superhero film.
Deeby follows the modern Disney method with his live-action adaptation of the 1963 Disney Classic(?), ‘The Sword In The Stone’.
Wumzum here for the Rugrats Writeup! //html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5426938/height/90/width/640/theme/custom/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/autoplay/no/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/backward/render-playlist/no/custom-color/d02222/
This week we’re joined again by HenryOMaestro as Wumi pitches a live-action adaptation of one of the popular webcomic-turned-anime: One Punch Man.
Henry’s the anime expert, Deeby’s a recent convert, Tam’s out of the loop and Wumi tries to cast appropriately.
Yo! Happy Valentines Day and all that! “Romeo and Juliet … IN SPACE!” was a challenge presented to yours truly by Tam almost as soon as he had the idea for this podcast. Deeby did what any right minded lad woulda’ done:
1) Put it off till Valentine’s Day was a stone’s throw away, and then
2) Made sure that his pitch veered as far away from anything like a Romeo and Juliet story at all.
Hollywood’s just announced that they’re rebooting the ‘Shaft’ films, but Tam reckons he can do better that the director of ‘Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer’. Tam introduces a new generation of the Shaft Family to the gritty world of modern-day Harlem – whatever that’s like.
We’re up all night for a BRAND NEW EPISODE! //html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5426949/height/90/width/640/theme/custom/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/autoplay/no/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/backward/render-playlist/no/custom-color/b02222/ Here’s what I’ve got for you this week:
A whole new world, A new fantastic episode of The Broken Elevator! This isn’t the first time we’ve tackled Disney, but it is for me. With Moana out this week, I tell Deeby three fairy tales that could potentially become films, and he helps me take the best idea from Zero to Hero. //html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5426953/height/90/width/640/theme/custom/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/autoplay/no/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/backward/render-playlist/no/custom-color/df1212/ I’m…
Merry Halloween! This week we go to http://www.horrortheque.com, find an old horror film and modernise the crap out of it. Deeby gives ‘Nosferatu’ an arthouse spin, Wumi hates horror, but questions reality with ‘Fear in the Night’, and Tam gives some gore to ‘The Brain That Wouldn’t Die’.
Tam takes a Magical Mystery Tour to 1969 in his Beatles-inspired pitch. With A Little Help From his friends – including guest Barney – Tam pitches a trueish story about an Abbey Road billboard on the Sunset Strip.
Barney’s got a Ticket to Ride, Deeby’s In The Sky With Diamonds, Wumi want to Hold Your Hand and Tam can’t think of another pun and needs some Help!
