Fantasyland the movie

Postby raygunpunx » Thu Dec 27, 2007 6:24 pm

I got this email from Ron Shandler today.

A brief note from Ron Shandler...

When Sam Walker and the producers of this film contacted me and
described the type of person they wanted for the amazing
opportunity described below, I immediately knew the best place to
look... right here.

This is a major opportunity and will be a major theatrical release,
on the same scale as recent documentaries like "Spellbound" and
"Wordplay." This is all incredibly exciting.

So, if you think you are "the guy," take the time to answer these
questions and help show off our fanalytic corner of this great
industry. Plus, you'd get the chance to go nose-to-nose against
me for Andrew Sonnanstine...

See you on the celluloid...

Awesome. That will be a fun movie to watch. I think I'd rather see it as a mocumentary rather than a straight up doc, but it'll do. The fantasy episode of Arliss was definitely my favorite.
