Colonol Cairo was black?
I've read it twice and don't remember that. Silly me. I'll have to read it again


btw I think that Val Kilmer would be a good Charlie Fabian/Joe Merchant.
Well...if Colonel Cairo isn't black, I think Christopher Walken could pull it off...He does "psycho-badass" extremely well!!
Wrinkles only go where smiles have been.
What infinite wisdom...Thank you Jimmy!!!

I get that feeling. I guess it could be the ferrari, or the constant Selleck name dropping on random threads. . . :lol: :lol:

I'd like to see the movie done so there's an actual flying boat on the movie screen and in the movie poster in the Twentyhundreds. It might be the first movie to feature a flying boat in it for the first time in the Twentyhundreds.

Although I haven't seen - are there any seaplanes/flying boats in Hoot? Or any other movies released in the last five years?
No flying boats but the new Superman movie has a seaplane! :)

It actually has quite a big part in the movie!! :wink:

I personally hope someone can get this through to Jimmy. There are surely people on this board with connections!!!!
When they run you out of town make it look like you are leading the parade.

Yea I'm kinda hoping for that. Maybe a gentle reminder to Man about a great story he wrote years ago. When you have the drive and ambition that Jimmy does I'm sure there are many things occupying your thoughts, time, and energy. As for Tom Selleck if he's in the movie can we find a part for Mr. Higgins? That would be funny and warped.

Years ago Buffett began filming a movie entitled Margaritaville but like Joe Merchant after it, it got shelved. I forget the exact reasons behind it but Joe Merchant was scheduled for filming but got sidelined. Since we've heard little to nothing about it since I imagine it's time has come and gone.

What is "buying points"?
