I’m writing a screenplay about a couch potato.
Hate the idea. It’ll never work.
The potato does nothing except sit on the couch
for the entire movie. Meanwhile, this entire world
is happening around him.
Stupid. Absolutely ridiculous. People will
never watch it.
But all the elements around him will
be pushing him to move – there’s even
a love interest…
Still won’t sell. Too cerebral.
The potato has a rabbit, too, that sits on the
coffee table and watches him the duration of
the film. He chews carrot sticks, and the
couch potato swears he hears the bunny
saying, “What’s up Doc?”
A pet rabbit staring at a couch potato?
The entire time?
Fucking brilliant! I want the spec on my desk
first thing Monday morning.
