That was some awesome stuff to read. Great find Jeff!



QT mentioned the book WW and The Dixie Dancekings, that movie version is one of my favorites! I dont think alot of people have seen it, but if you can find it, check it out. Ive never read the book.



I liked the parts about him getting his typewriter from Grace back, his mom not getting a house. haha. And his childhood crush Tatum O Neal became Somerset O Neal in his own Afterschool Special script (later part of the Fox Force Five).



Also you can see the types of writing QT likes most: Crime, Comedy, Film Noir, Westerns, B-Movies mostly.



That crosstalk is one of the best things Ive read so far on the board. :slight_smile:

holy shoestrind Helgeland was paid $5,000,000 for writing A Knights Tale - he must be minted, looking at his resume his written or directed a lot of films, I bet hes made about $30+



What does someone who spends all his time making films do with with all that money?
