A new friend of mine is a Hollywood type who routinely works on script development for TV and film (no joke, she really does) ... a while ago she produced a screenplay that deals with a mother who is at odds because of empty nest issues and a husband who may be straying from the nest. Mystical elements enter her life from an unexpected source and they both help her and challenge her at the same time. The script was attached to Diane Keaton at one time, at another it was attached to anotherA-list actress (the name now escapes me, but it could have been Meryl Streep...), but in the end it always fell out of development. This friend wants to now translate this screenplay into a graphic novel that can be published (or self published) and then possibly begin another run at being picked up by a studio.
This isn't a pipe dream. I met with her about it last weekend after I attended the Gnomon Workshop in L.A. ...
My friend wants to develop character sketches and produce a six page demo to take to Comic Con ... She will translate her script into graphic novel format. She is aggressive about this project and is not averse to paying for artwork from an artist with the skills to do this kind of non-superhero project.
I know that I am not the artist to take this project forward -- But do you TAGsters have any ideas about it or art candidates who might be suitable?
Email me directly if you do, but comments to the post are most welcome!
