Shangri-La Suite is the name of a feature film I will (hopefully) be directing in the (very near) future. If all goes according to plan, it could shoot as soon as this winter (or, you know, in like eight years)*. Things are looking good, but you never know. The film industry is a fickle place and it’s tuff stuff to get dudes to donate millions of bones to a movie co-written and directed by a freckle-faced, 25-year-old hipster. Who knew?

Anyway, The movie takes place in 1974 and it’s about two lovers on the run, headed to Los Angeles, to kill Elvis Presley (kind of like Gravity). Here are some photos I took during the production of a teaser we shot to stir up interest in the biz. EO

*The average American film takes seven years from the moment the script is started to the day of its theatrical release. So far, I’m only three years in.

    I’m an assistant at Sony, I believe your agent might have passed this along to us (years ago). I was required to do coverage for it. Needlessly to say, I became a fan and went as far as friending you on Facebook (Yeah, I’m a real creep). The executives on the other hand, we’re smittened by such a fresh voice and how bold it was, but went no dice. I blame Smurfs 2, a lot good folks got rimmed out and fired after it tanked. Eddie, hang in there bro. Hang in there.

    This is going to rule so hard. Holy shit.

    Kiefer Sutherland to play Elvis correct? Elvis was a natural blonde to begin with anyways!

  6. As far as value , these coins have added value.

    I believe what you posted made a bunch of sense.
    But, what about this? suppose you typed a catchier title?
    I am not saying your information isn’t solid, but suppose you added a headline that grabbed people’s attention? I

    is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s front page
    and note how they create news titles to get viewers
    to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab people excited about everything’ve got to say.
    In my opinion, it would bring your posts a little livelier.

    Aw, this was an extremely good post. Spending some time and actual effort to make a superb article but what can I say I
    hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get nearly
    anything done.
