Recently, I’ve been working on a documentary called Project Heaven: The Afterlife? So far, I’ve interviewed a Hindu Priest, a Buddhist Lama and a Jewish Rabbi. Next week, I meet with a Muslim Imam and a Catholic Nun. Lastly, I’ll interview a Southern Baptist Minister. I’ll also have ‘man on the street’ interviews with regular people.
The doc is very educational. For instance, did you know that Hindus believe that they have to be Reincarnated 84 million times before they achieve Final Union with God. And they can come back as a man, woman, animal, bird, fish, bacteria, insect, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Athiest, etc. Amazing.
I plan on entering my doc into several major Film Festivals this year. Here are some of the festivals I’m targeting.
Sundance, Chicago Film Festival, Austin Film Festival, Tribeca Film Festival and a couple of more.
Anyway, that’s not the point of this post. While doing my research for my interviews, I came across something in the Bible that gave me an idea for another screenplay.
In Revelations, in the Bible, they speak of The Rapture, where Jesus takes all of the living and dead that believed in Him up into the sky with Him. He leaves all of the sinners and non-believers here on Earth, where there is no power, water, food, etc. It is an apocalyptic wasteland. This is supposed to last 1,000 years.
My story is about a man who has survived and is the last in his family’s line to make it to the 1,000 year deadline and possible Salvation.
He would be a warrior to have survived in this wasteland, where everybody is out for themselves. I foresee lots of blood, guts and gore. Do you remember how grossed out some people were when they saw The Passion of the Christ. My story has so much more blood and horrific scenes. Hey, this is the End of Times and shit is going down. Jesus is battling a red dragon and it has never been worse, ever.
In Hollywood, they say to have a line that brings two movies together to explain your story. When Cujo, the killer dog, came out, they called it Jaws on Paws.
My story would be Rambo meets The Passion of the Christ. I call it “1,000 Years.” It’s based on Biblical fact and I know millions would want to see the Apocalyptic Wasteland that the Bible has foretold about. This could be Epic.
I’ll flesh out the story later, but I’m going for an 11 on the shock meter.
The whole reason I wrote this post was to tell you what I did today. When I wrote that line about Rambo, I thought of Sly Stallone. On a goof, I looked up his Facebook page.
And what do you know, there is a Send Message button on his page. Don’t get ahead, lol. Most celebrities don’t want to be bothered with fan messages.
Anyway, I sent a little message similar to what you just read to Sly. I have zero hopes of anything happening, because it just doesn’t work that way. The reason I laugh when I think of this is because of how I closed the note.
At the end, I said, “Tell Sly Spider says whaddup.” lmao. I’m sure the person that checks his Facebook messages had to say, “Who the fuck is this nut?” lol.
Until next time, be safe and have a chill day.
