Siege is Dead, Long Live Siege

Well Big Company passed on Siege.

I got the word from My Agent. The competing project is moving forward, so there's no space for Siege. it was a long, loving email, filled with regret and support as My Agent tried to let me know that Big Company.. ah screw it. Here's the email.

"siege dead - competing project a go"

So there you go. Now, sly businessmen that we are, Charlie and I have turned around and offered Siege to... Producer Dude. He wants it. He's got it. Claims he'll start shooting in May/June.

I'm not holding my breath. But he also claims to be sending us a small token to officially option the script. My words. His words, he's sending a "deposit."

So we're back on this bandwagon. Will Siege ever get made? Your guess is as good as mine.

But if it does get made, I weaseled a slightly larger fee for the script out of Producer Dude.

It's all about the Benjamins.
