Hello, CS here with the March submissions for Pitch the LAMB. I would like to extend a HUGE thank you to all who participated. Each pitch was unique and could easily be made into a film. Before we get to the pitches, here is a quick reminder of the genre and words/phrases:
- He’s going to kill you…
- She does not know I am alive…
- Hey Frankie…
- Do not tell Dad…
- You did what?
First up, Rick Swift of Iratefilms.com offers up a fictional review of his film starring Hayden Panettiere. The film not only cements Panettiere as a serious actress, but it also sheds light on the issue of Body Dysmorphic Disorder. Let’s see…young actress playing against type, serious issue, tragic love story…Panettiere may want to get her Oscar dress ready!
When it comes to casting, Fletch at Blog Cabins has decided to conduct a search for an unknown to play the lead role of Mitch Montgomery. Mitch is the mischievous 15 year-old who will do anything, including being buried alive, to get the attention of the girl of his dreams. Word around town is that Universal and Miramax are currently in a bidding war for the rights to distribute the film.
Simon, the mastermind behind Four of Them, offers up a story for the hipster inside all of us. This may be the shortest pitch of the group but the cast alone, which features some of Hollywood’s hottest young actors, makes this film a must see. TMZ is reporting that Morgan Freeman liked the idea so much that he offered to take a pay cut just to be in the film.
Andrew of Encore’s World of Film & TV conjures up a tragic period piece about a woman, Margaret, torn between what her heart wants and what others want from her. According to Variety, there is a buzz building for the film amongst Academy insiders. Andrew is letting his readers come up with a title for the film, if you have a suggestion for a good title be sure to let him know.
Lastly, Big Thoughts From A Small Mind brings us a tale of friendship on the open road. Entertainment Weekly reports that this small indie film is still looking for financing. Though P.T. Anderson has been linked as a possible director.
Thanks again to all who took part in this month’s Pitch the LAMB. April’s edition is just around the corner.
