Back on the road

Just heard from top producer Mark Forstater who I met last year. We talked about a feature version of Wimborne Road. Not a 90 minute version of the documentary we've already shot of course. But rather a massive scale up. A scale up to one of the biggest urban roads in the world - Broadway in New York.

Mark was the producer of Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I like his catalogue of work. The variety is enormous, perhaps he is like me and sees interesting things in unusual places. He even dropped out of film altogether for the past few years.

He is still interested in producing the road movie documentary - but we need to find a presenter. Mark's ready to hit the phones and make it happen. But this presenter should probably be someone who is known in the US - but known as an outsider. They also need to be known for 'being interested in people'. Our list currently concentrates on people like:

  • Michael Palin
  • Eric Idle (who has Spamalot on Broadway)
  • Ricky Gervais
  • Billy Connelly

With other alternative candidates who don't exactly fit the stated criteria but who could shake up the mix:

  • Rudy Giuliani
  • Adam West (of Batman TV fame)
  • Sarah Michelle Gellar

Other candidates welcome from all blog readers. I want to give Mark a good list to go at!

Nathan Lane.
Martin Short.
Steve Martin.
Al Pacino.
Russell Crowe.
Colin Farrell.

I started well, didn't I?

Started well yes. But the 'shouting trio' at the end may well scare off the locals!

Nathan Lane (with Mathew Broderick of course) seems to be the King Of Broadway at the moment.
