Since we’re doing introspection this week….
Hollywood has come calling!
They’ve taken a look at the Afterword’s “journey”, from rescue pod from a doomed website, to assault by hackers, to the Facebook exodus, and on to our glorious return, and subsequent accusations that fings were better before the hack attack. They’ve concluded that this will make one hell of a movie.
ELEVATOR PITCH: “It’s basically High Fidelity meets Revenge of the Nerds meets Idiocracy, with a dash of Braveheart, a soupcon of Brazil, a pinch of Office Space and a dash of Repo Man. In cyberspace.”
Production is slated to start next year, William Friedkin will direct (natch), and the studio is in the process of putting together what will be a star-packed, money no object cast to anchor what will be their number one summer tentpole title. Oh, and thanks to the wonders of technology, they can reanimate the dead.
So far, they’re thinking:
John Candy as Moose the Mooche.
Carrie Anne Moss as Poppy Succeeds.
Jeff Bridges as Rob C (or whatever he’s calling himself now).
Richard E. Grant as HP Saucecraft.
Beyond that, they’re after suggestions. Over to you…
