Gamer Month returns! To kick things off this year, Tam takes the gang to the border of the glorious Nation of Arstotzka to pitch a live-action adaptation of the popular Indie Political Thriller Puzzle game: Papers, Please.
This week our guest Nick Hurd pitches a long-awaited sequel to the critically acclaimed 2004 Jackman/Beckinsale joint, Van Helsing.
Sure, they’ve been to London before, but this time our guest Stella is taking The Simpsons to The Ends. //html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5457379/height/90/width/640/theme/custom/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/autoplay/no/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/backward/render-playlist/no/custom-color/f4f142/ What can I tell you that isn’t already widely known about The Simpsons? Let’s see what I can do:
Wumzum’s here for the Weekly Writeup. This week I pitched my own Samurai Jack film. Live Action though – Tam made me do it. //html5-player.libsyn.com/embed/episode/id/5426933/height/90/width/640/theme/custom/autonext/no/thumbnail/yes/autoplay/no/preload/no/no_addthis/no/direction/backward/render-playlist/no/custom-color/f43c3c/
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’.
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.
This week’s episode is probably NSFW. Probably.
Everyone loves a good foreign film every once in a while, right? This week, our guest Jan Lukas from German podcast ‘Kompendium des Unbehagens’ introduces us to the Japanese film “Air Doll” and his idea for a spinoff prequel.
