I have a feeling he'll do a period piece of some kind.  What ever it is, i'm sure it will be my favorite movie of 200?.


That's exactly what I see him doing, too.  My god it would be great.

But wait...won't he eventually make something I won't like? :(

See, the way I see it about PTA's eventual musical is that it won't be with Hollywood's best singers.. its going to be "Everybody Says I Love You" mixed with "Nashville" in my view.

Reilly and Moore would be locks I would say.. and I would expect some unexpected people to show up... perhaps Henry Gibson?

You act like the musical is a done deal already, Im still not convinced that it will ever happen, it seems like just a cool idea he has, but hopefully it will come true.

With the musical making a comeback, now would be the right time for him to make one.

I hope he doesn't do a musical.  If he decides to, do it on Broadway, not on celluloid.

b/c I just don't like the majority of musicals.  I've always enjoyed seeing a Musical on stage, but I think a Musical on film is just...a hacked version of the stage version.
All the wonder and skill of the performances are gone.

Alright so I picked action. Really only because no one else had, but hey the car wreaks in PDL were great and so was Sandler beating down the brothers. So how about a PTA movie with a whole bunch of car wreaks and fighting. And then some more car wreaks, oh yeah, you can't have too many car wreaks.

Keep Well,
Dan

I'd like to see him bring his sense of humor (or what I see as quirky) to celluloid...does anyone else agree that a PTA comedy would be darkly humorous?

What he needs to do is Boogie Nights 0.5... er, Boogie Days. It's the prequel to Boogie Nights, telling of a young filmmaker named Jack Horner and his dream to make the great American porno. When he's working in a club, he's discovered by a middle-aged money bag named the Colonel James and... well, I guess you know the score.

Younger versions of most of the BN characters (ie, the discovery of Buck, Amber, and Reed, and a young Peurto Rican immigrant with the dreams of starting a club, etc.) No Dirk or Rollergirl in this one though.

That actually sounds pretty kickass.

How about going waaaaaaay back. Assuming that Jack Horner is 55 in 1980 (that might be a tad too old, but we can fudge it). .... Let's go back to 1943 and put an 18-year-old Jack Horner in World War II. We'll see the injury that made him walk funny. We'll see him witness that horrors of wartime, and find love on the side.

Then flash forward to Horner failing at every post-war entreprenurial effort during the 1950s, before finally finding his niche in porn during the mid-60s.

The movie should end on New Year's Eve, 1969.

That's the part of Jack's life I want to know about. ...

If the age really doesn't work, plunk Jack down in the Korean War instead of WW2.

Well, considering the deep, rich personal histories that PTA hints at in his movies, one could try write a book about how Sydney, Floyd, Jack, Jimmy, the Colonel and Earl all knew each other when they were younger. How they met, how they went their separate ways, how there are some horrible, haunting things that will always link them.

Or is that too creepy, and kind of like putting Chewbacca and C3-PO in Episode III?
