Quote from: SalThis novel looks long.
I got it today. It's 527 pages, small print too.
I'll wait for you to tell me all about it.
We often went to the cinema, the screen would light up and we would tremble, but also, increasingly often, Madeleine and I were disappointed. The images had dated, they jittered, and Marilyn Monroe had gotten terribly old. We were sad, this wasn't the film we had dreamed of, this wasn't the total film that we all carried around inside us, this film that we would have wanted to make, or, more secretly, no doubt, that we would have wanted to live.

Quote from: Pubrickuh it's no secret that it's about sumthing that happened in the 20s, so why is there speculation on whether it's a period piece?
There's a strong probability it's a period piece, sure... but isn't there a possibility that it's a loose adaptation or a time-warped adaptation?

Quote from: flagpolespeciali had a flash this morning 'i hope it's not miramax' but i don't know why i thought that.

Because you realized Bob and Harvey are involved with Disney-owned Miramax anymore.

I read about this movie just today and there are already 5 pages of riffing the "what ifs" on it.

God, I love Xixax.

No doubt.

I've been busy lately but finally discovered this thread! Man, I am really excited! I absolutely love the casting of DDL. I can't wait! Oh and this from Amazon.com's website.

QuoteFrom Library Journal
Sinclair's 1927 novel did for California's oil industry what The Jungle did for Chicago's meat-packing factories. The plot follows the clash between an oil developer and his son. Typical of Sinclair, there are undertones here of socialism and sympathy for the common working stiff. Though the book is not out of print, this is the only paperback currently available.
Copyright 1997 Reed Business Information, Inc.

Product Description:
In Oil! Upton Sinclair fashioned a novel out of the oil scandals of the Harding administration, providing in the process a detailed picture of the development of the oil industry in Southern California. Bribery of public officials, class warfare, and international rivalry over oil production are the context for Sinclair's story of a genial independent oil developer and his son, whose sympathy with the oilfield workers and socialist organizers fuels a running debate with his father. Senators, small investors, oil magnates, a Hollywood film star, and a crusading evangelist people the pages of this lively novel.

Trust me. I can't reveal my sources, but i'm confident this will be the next thing PTA does....of course with Paul, he could do a 180 and go in a different direction...don't forget that the PDL had a few elements from "Knuckle Sandwich" (as did Magnolia)...who knows maybe he has other finished or partially finished scripts lying around (Action Adventure, Animated film, etc.)....

So basically your sources say that he has this project in mind, but not that he is doing this project next, or he is already working on it, or he is thinking about casting, or anything... Everyone is so hungry to hear news about PTA that we're getting excited but we dont know for sure if this is happening or not... I want to wait before I get excited

No I'm saying that this is his next planned project, but things can always change. Until a deal is solidified with a studio, then it's all speculation..But I will and always do stand by my comments. I don't play the rumor game.

D. Poot is solid, but things change.. if they do, it's not because he was wrong.

Ok then thats cool :)

I would hate to read the damn book and then know that he didnt even read it!!!  :doh:

Something Spanish

so it seems pta is finally maturing. cool. I read upton sinclaire's "the jungle" last year. it was really good, but sometimes felt like propaganda for socialism. i'll probably hold out on reading OIL. and for some reason andykal's last comment really annoyed me and i wish i had the opportunity to punch his face. little whiner.

Yeah, because Hard Eight, Boogie Nights, Magnolia and Punch-Drunk Love were very immature.
