IMDB Message Board for EXPATS
The Marmot's Hole
Hey, the film hasn't even been made. I guess an active interest (whether it's negative or positive) is a good thing. Interestingly there's an article in the New York Times today titled "Negative Publicity Is the New Hot Hype."
But then you shouldn't even believe any hype when you haven't even made the movie yet. I shouldn't even think about how people are going to react to the movie. I should concentrate on making it. I'm sure some critics of my previous movies may disagree but I do believe in my ability to tell an exciting story.
A bit of good news. We just formed the production company for EXPATS. It's a big step forward. More than anything else, it means "commitment" from other people involved in the project.
I'm going to LA this Wednesday. 2 weeks in LA and NY. I hope to have some news from the actor we made an offer to.
