As long as I’m bumming scripts, I may as well scout around also for Joshua James‘ adaptation of Peter Biskind‘s “Down and Dirty Pictures,” which is apparently going to be shooting soon under the aegis of director Kenneth Bowser, producer Kevin Scott Frakes and PalmStar Entertainment.
The finished film will almost certainly fail, of course. Any film produced by a company named “Palm Star Entertainment,” trust me, hasn’t a snowball’s chance in hell of being even half-tolerable. (The conjunction of the words “palm” and “star” assures ostentation and cluelessness.) In a column posted yesterday Fox News 411’s Roger Friedman said it was politically doomed as well.
The “Down and Dirty” project was first announced in a Variety story in August 2006.
