Sea Piece SCRIPT 08 11

Beginning in 1986, Barry Levinson intended to produce and direct a biopic based on the life of Darin with funding from his own production company, Baltimore Pictures.[2] With writer Lewis Colick, Levinson pitched the idea to Warner Bros. Pictures, who agreed to co-finance The Bobby Darin Story and cover distribution duties. Producer Arthur Friedman, a fan of Darin's work, began to laboriously negotiate for crucial music licensing rights with Darin's ex-wife, Sandra Dee; his son, Dodd; and former manager Steve Blauner. Colick wrote the first draft in 1987 before Warner Bros. and Levinson commissioned rewrites from Paul Attanasio and Paul Schrader.[3] Their scripts, which kept The Bobby Darin Story title,[4] concentrated on Sandra Dee's alcoholism and childhood molestation by her stepfather.[3] David Gershenson, Darin's longtime friend, publicist and manager, joined the project as a historical consultant.[5] Tom Cruise was reportedly under consideration to portray Darin.[6]

Meanwhile, in May 1994, Warner Bros. optioned Dodd Darin's book, Dream Lovers (.mw-parser-output cite.citationfont-style:inherit; .citation qquotes:"\"""\"""'""'".mw-parser-output .citation:targetbackground-color:rgba(0,127,255,0.133).mw-parser-output .id-lock-free a,.mw-parser-output .citation .cs1-lock-free abackground:url("//")right 0.1em center/9px .id-lock-limited a,.mw-parser-output .id-lock-registration a,.mw-parser-output .citation .cs1-lock-limited a,.mw-parser-output .citation .cs1-lock-registration abackground:url("//")right 0.1em center/9px .id-lock-subscription a,.mw-parser-output .citation .cs1-lock-subscription abackground:url("//")right 0.1em center/9px .cs1-ws-icon abackground:url("//")right 0.1em center/12px .cs1-codecolor:inherit;background:inherit;border:none; .cs1-hidden-errordisplay:none; .cs1-maintdisplay:none;color:#3a3; .citation .mw-selflinkfont-weight:inheritISBN 0-446-51768-2).[7] James Toback and Lorenzo Carcaterra were hired to rewrite Attanasio's The Bobby Darin Story, which they retitled Dreamer in an attempt to incorporate the information present in Dodd Darin's Dream Lovers.[8][9] Toback's script heavily focused on Darin's childhood rheumatic fever and lifelong struggle with heart disease. It also followed the previous Attanasio and Schrader scripts.[3] Carcaterra's detailed research included Darin's music records, home videos, early television clips, authorized and unauthorized biographies, newspaper articles and magazine interviews. "I decided to meet with a lot of real-life people associated with Bobby Darin until [Levinson] said it was taking the focus off of Bobby," Carcaterra explained. As a result, some of the writer's favorite scenes, including a Las Vegas confrontation with Elvis Presley, were omitted from his third and final draft, which came in at a lengthy 164 pages.[3]

Tom Epperson, who had struck up a friendship with Spacey while writing an early screenplay draft of The Shipping News, was hired to write a new draft for Beyond the Sea. Epperson's script included Darin's penchant for orgies after his divorce with Sandra Dee. Spacey, finding the Epperson script to be overtly dark and morbid, began to rewrite Beyond the Sea, incorporating info from the 1987 Lewis Colick script.[3] Spacey acknowledged he portrayed Darin too sympathetically and decided not to depict the darker side of Darin's life centrally. "The other scripts made Bobby [Darin] a rather unlikable figure," he explained. "I was not interested in making a conventional biopic, as you can see from the results. I was interested in making an exuberant celebration of an entertainer in a way that would be uplifting for an audience."[21]

To promote Beyond the Sea, Spacey and Phil Ramone devised a 12-city United States concert tour titled An Evening Celebrating the Music of Bobby Darin, which consisted of Spacey performing with a 19-piece band.[24] "It's me singing Bobby and talking about Bobby and talking a little bit about the movie," Spacey explained in June 2004. Spacey dressed in costumes from the movie for the tour, which started in San Francisco and traveled through Los Angeles, New York City, Boston, Chicago, Miami and Atlantic City before ending in the Wayne Newton Theatre at the Stardust Hotel in Las Vegas.[12] Spacey's performance at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel on December 11, 2004 received a standing ovation.[27] Dodd Darin commented, "It was said about my dad that he had some big brass ones. To do a film about my dad is one thing, but it's another thing to go out and attempt to work a nightclub. Kevin's got a lot of courage. I think he sounds good."[6] The film was shown and promoted at the Toronto International Film Festival on September 11, 2004.[28]

Beginning in October 2004, the Writers Guild of America, West conducted arbitration to determine writing credit for the scripts that had been written since Barry Levinson, who developed the film at Warner Bros. in 1987, left the project. Lewis Colick, James Toback and Tom Epperson disassociated themselves for credit by the WGA.[3] The Guild justified credit to Colick, who wrote the first draft of The Bobby Darin Story in 1987, and Kevin Spacey. Actor-writer Jeffrey Meek believed he deserved credit; he was paid $85,000 of a promised $125,000 to settle his claim.[3]

Beyond the Sea received mixed reviews from critics. Based on 147 reviews collected by Rotten Tomatoes, 42% of the critics gave the film a positive review, with an average score of 5.2/10. Its consensus states "Kevin Spacey's bio of singer Bobby Darin is either a fearless piece of showmanship or an embarrassing vanity project, according to critics."[29] Metacritic calculated a weighted average score of 46/100, based on 35 reviews.[30]

Your profile is the most important piece of your online dating experience, says Hoffman, but you shouldn't let that intimidate you. Instead, treat your profile and online dating experience as a living document and "a sort of love lab for your life."

Working without a script and music and not doing research beforehand are some of the rules that he follows. "I used to make a lot of TV documentaries for NHK, the Japanese public network, but the way these films were made was completely opposite. We had to do a lot of research before shooting and write a detailed script with a beginning, middle and end.

This article is a transcript of the PAW Patrol episode "Sea Patrol: Pups Save a Shark" from Season 4, which premiered on September 8, 2017 in the United States and on September 30, 2017 in Canada.

Welcome once again to our annual "first look" at the broadcast networks' offerings for the 2008-2009 season. Each day we'll walk you through one of the new series set to premiere next season and go over our initial impressions after viewing the pilot - or in this new post-strike/straight-to-series world, reading the pilot script. We'll start with the ones that were actually filmed and move on to the others in the coming weeks.

THE PILOTS THAT DIDN'T MAKE THE CUT: ATLANTA (CBS, 2007)(written by Paul Reiser; directed by Harold Ramis; TRT: 21:54) The network's description: No official description was released.What did they leave out: Be prepared to use the following phrase - "Whaaaaaaaaaaa???"The plot in a nutshell: Jessica (Leslie Bibb) is your typical directionless yuppie - she's on yet another career (sales rep for a wine and beverage company), her boyfriend (Hayes MacArthur) is starting to choose Braves games over evenings with her and well, that's about all we learn about her. Eric (Freddie Prinze, Jr.) likewise is drifting along in a non-descript job amongst a sea of uninteresting women. Thankfully Scooter died, as it's his funeral that causes them to meet. There, despite lots of stumbling and awkwardness, they start to click and - during an impassioned speech by one of Scooter's friends (John Billingsley) about how life is too short - she gently rubs his hand, an event which Eric interprets as a sign from God they belong together. And so begins his Quixotic quest to earn her heart, or at least her phone number. There's Googling, calling in favors to college alumni, bitching to best friends (Dondre Whitfield in Eric's case, Christine Woods in Jessica's) and staring intently at pictures. Jessica is of course both horrified and intrigued by his pursuit. Not helping matters is their increasingly disastrous encounters, which include Eric's watch getting caught on her skirt (and accidentally tearing it off) and nearly being hit by a speeding Hummer. The latter event causes Jessica to muse that, "If this was a Sandra Bullock movie, we'd kiss right now." But they don't. She does however finally give up her phone number - and the good news is, it wasn't a fake one.What works: If after reading the above you're saying to yourself, "Whaaaaaaaaaaa???"...What doesn't:'re not alone. You know that scene in "Swingers" where Jon Favreau's character finally gets a girl's number and we watch him call her over and over to leave subsequently more and more embarrassing messages? This show is basically a longer version of that scene, minus the underlying sweetness, humor and goodwill built up by the scenes leading up to it. What really torpedoes it however is that Eric and Jessica literally have zero chemistry, which kind of undercuts the whole "I must have her"/"he's winning me over" dynamic. Even worse are the pilot's weird omissions, the foremost of which being the fact we're never told how Eric or Jessica know this Scooter person. The funeral might as well have been a coffee shop, it's literally that transparent. So yes, it's meet Jessica, meet Eric, they meet, he must have her, he sort of wins her over, the end.The bottom line: The end indeed. 041b061a72
