it sounds like the sister movie to twbb, kinda like how maggie is boogie's sister. (pdl and sydney are only childs).
for the record i forgot my theory that twbb is pdl's evil twin.

oh god, this thread is going to get long. it's a shame all these classic posts will be lost in the flame wars that inevitably begin as soon as we hear the words "no score". so here, for the latecomers, is the page 5 recap, the highlights of each page of the thread so far:

page 1.
PTA pwned your main goal, GT. Another thing to add to the PTA is a fucking jerk thread.

"Dood, wtf? I wanted to be the American Bresson. It was my main goal!"

"You snooze, you lose."


stefen fucking owned GT with this riff on GT's inimitable speech style. "my main goal" is no "my story isn't decorated with blowjobs" but it was elevated to brilliance here. and then BALTHAZAR! hahaha, gotta love that donkey (RIP). really great especially among highlights such as stefen's own metal gear solid quip, and Polky's "silently judging like crazy" (<---- marquee material) which was so good silias couldn't help plagiarizing it only two pages later (a definite lowlight).

page 2.
And we start the pattern of crazy again...

1.) PTA will mention what books he was influenced by for this one.  Everyone will rush out and read them.  Love them.

2.) PTA will mention what movies he was influenced by for this one.  Everyone will rush out and see them and come back, wondering why he chose those...mild disappointment.

3.) Screenplay will slowly leak.  People will read it, come back and tell everyone it sucks, it's boring, "W the fuck?"

4.) Teaser Poster comes out... work of genius... everyone will reference it in every thread here.

5.) Teaser trailer will come out, everyone will watch it a million times, jizz all over, tell everyone that hated the screenplay to suck a D.

5.) Official Release Poster will come out.  Everyone will hate it, screenplay jerk will be all "told you so".

6.) Official trailer will come out.  Amazing.  Screenplay jerks take it back.

7.) Movie comes out... two people will hate it... everyone else loves it.  One line will get quoted over and over.

8.) That line gets so over-quoted and referenced that the people who originally started quoting it will go back and erase original posts in which they quoted said line.  Then they'll say how much they hate it when people quote that line.

9.) Brett Ratner

can't wait

RK comes through with the buzzer beater at the bottom of the page, with the succinct summary of pretty much what always happens before and after PTA news. this hilarious list pushed cronopio's comeback to a dignified second spot.

page 3
I will remember today.  

this says it all., that's exactly the reason this place is so hard to quit, who outside these freak forums would even get this excited about ANYTHING? i posted the news on my facebook like a good fanboy and only my secret internet friends replied. everyone else must be thinking "time to click hide on this guy! his lack of interest in stupid quizzes offends me!"

page 4
i actually really like sean penn, but my patience is brimming with him and his elk these days.


maybe i can make this a running thing cos after 100 pages (next week) and lack of a search function, too much will be lost, depending on the amount of actual highlights.
under the paving stones.

Oh man...I know my post level is low, but I've been around here for a while and its great moments like this that warrant coming out of the shadows.  I too was recently thinking its about time we get our first tidbit of info on the next PTA, and what a tidbit!  Please please please let it get greenlit. 

I'm a fan of the sister films theory.  Also excited to see PTA's take on the 1950s.  Will this take place in the LA/Valley area?

I love how much speculation has already occurred. Its going to be a long, fun (hopefully only) 2 years waiting for this.

Jeremy Blackman for Freddie.  (Or Zac Efron.)

My mistake, I meant to say:

even if it's in 'Variety', I won't give a damn about this movie until we get more

'til then it sounds like a rumor...even if it isn't...still sounds like it

(to play Devil's Advocate, nobody believed a porn-pudding-love story either for awhile)

Are you playing devil's advocate to your own statement?

Yeah...wtf? Are you?

Jeremy Blackman recently


When I heard about the Freddie character, I kind of just assumed a young actor, but it could be interesting with an older character too. I wonder if he'll put a bunch of songs from the 50's in? could be a cool soundtrack as long as it's not hymns and chanting and people speaking in tongues. Though I'd probably still buy it.

Does anyone know when cigarettes & red vines will be back up and running?
It's like, how much more black could this be? And the answer is none. None more black.

^haha, awesome. good sport.

And Cigs & Red Vines has been down for awhile. I think they just moved to a new site and are in the process of getting everything moved over. Hopefully this news speeds up the process.

Praise the lord!

I hope as PTA gets older he starts cranking out more of his great work. It sucks to love a director so much and then find out he has Kubrickitis.

I have been waiting for this news for a long, long time. I always find myself checking cigarettesandredvines (now ptanderson.info) for updates, hoping that something will come out of the woodwork. So, imagine my relief and surprise when some news finally surfaced.

I am so looking forward to learning more about this project.

I wonder what the actual title will end up being. Surely "The Master" is too simple and Ron Howardish for a PTA joint.
