    Gosh, this post has been up for nearly four hours and, so far, no response from Spam Dooley. That’s… odd.

  2. Dan R% says:

    …you could hear a pin drop.

  3. Mr. Blobby says:

    Perhaps he’s out of the country?

  4. bicycle bob says:

    the spammer is just looking for a way to disagree with david on it. don’t worry bout him. he’ll find some janitor at disney to bad mouth someone here and give him gossip

  5. Mr. Blobby says:

    Isn’t it weird how few people have commented regarding this? It’s like everyone who reads this blog suddenly vanished.

  6. Martin says:

    Who’s Scott Rudin?

  7. Terence D says:

    I don’t think its about vanishing. I think most people don’t really care about the internals at studios. They care about the movies coming out and the stars and the directors. I think I know the industry fairly well and I don’t even know these names here. But thats why I come. To learn.

  8. Mark says:

    Rudin can do what he wants. But don’t work for him. Trust me. Lets just say really fat, gay men who yell and scream aren’t fun to work for.

  9. bicycle bob says:

    didn’t they base swimming with sharks on him? if hes anything like spacey, wow.

  10. Spam Dooley says:

    Leave it to you to be wrong and provoke my superior knowledge.
    Swimming with Sharks was based on BARRY JOSEPHSON at Columbia.
    as far as my comments
    WHO CARES about Publicists?
    Spam Dooley doesn’t

  11. Joe Leydon says:

    Well gosh, Spamster: Does this mean publicists are people you wouldn’t feed? That’s harsh, man.

  12. jeff mcm says:

    I heard the Swimming with Sharks/Scott Rudin rumor too, and sadly Spam is correct, that the writer was a former assistant to Josephson.

  13. Spam Dooley says:

    Why is it sad? I am Spam Dooley and I am always right- or else I don’t speak- unlike some of YOU.
    And have you seen a publicist lately?
    They don’t need feeding.
    I am Spam Dooley and I feed MY people.

  14. Mark says:

    Spammer is Jeff Wells. Bitter at Poland for having a ten times better site.

  15. Spam Dooley says:

    Mark is Mark Wahlberg, bitter at having worked with David Russell.
    I am Spam Dooley and I know all!

  16. bicycle bob says:

    spammer is the janitor over at the baja fresh on wilshire

  17. Mark says:

    You’re giving Spammer much too much credit. He’s at the Carl Jr’s.

  18. Mark says:

    Dave, it may be time to ban online poker. I don’t think he even cares about movies. Maybe Rounders.

“What Quibi trying to do is get to the next generation of film narrative. The first generation was movies, and they were principally two-hour stories that were designed to be watched in a single sitting in a movie theater [ED: After formats like the nickelodeon]. The next generation of film narrative was television, principally designed to be watched in one-hour chapters in front of a television set. I believe the third generation of film narrative will be a merging of those two ideas, which is to tell two-hour stories in chapters that are seven to ten minutes in length. We are actually doing long-form in bite-size.”

“The important thing is: what makes the audience interested in it? Of course, I don’t take on any roles that don’t interest me, or where I can’t find anything for myself in it. But I don’t like talking about that. If you go into a restaurant and you have been served an exquisite meal, you don’t need to know how the chef felt, or when he chose the vegetables on the market. I always feel a little like I would pull the rug out from under myself if I were to I speak about the background of my work. My explanations would come into conflict with the reason a movie is made in the first place — for the experience of the audience — and that, I would not want.
