818!!

So the first draft of the movie is finished! We turned our first draft in to the producer last night. I must say, I'm pretty excited about it. My writing partner and I started writing the project exactly 2 months ago. Oh yeah...and it's called "818" (which is the San Fernando Valley for all you non-Californians) The thing I'm looking forward to is seeing "WRITTEN BY J LEE & TOM WELCH" across the bottom of the poster! Close your eyes and visualize that, home slices.

The script is a gritty LAPD cop drama set on the 4th of July! Think Crash (multiple story lines, characters connected in various ways) meets Black Hawk Down (a simple routine day goes wrong, turning into the longest evening in 2 cops' lives)

It's Titled!

So I think we finally came up with a title for the screenplay. If you've been reading, you know that I was hired to write a feature length film for an independent producer. I've been writing for almost 2 months now and my writing partner and I are almost finished with a pretty solid first draft. Don't think we'll have to go back and make TOO many drastic changes and that's always a good thing. If the producer likes it, I love it. (I'll let you know the title once it's 100% locked and loaded)

This summer is shaping up to be a pretty busy one for me. Of course I wrote myself into the film. That'd be against the J Lee law to write a movie and not have a lil cameo. So if (when) all works well, we'll be shooting that later this year. Also met with another director yesterday and read for a lead part in an indepenent film. My production company (Griffin & Lee Entertainment) is in talks to co-produce the film. Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

And, I'm shooting a short film this weekend called "Back yard battle robots". I play the "Molten Rock" guy. (Think The Thing from Fantastic Four). It's a full suit. Should be interesting.

Alright, back to writing. Just needed to give a quick update to all my peeps.

OH..and check out my new trailer for "Battle For The Crown". It will be playing at the Hollywood Black Film Festival June 7th, at 2pm at the Fine Arts Theater. 8556 Wilshire Blvd, in Beverly Hills. Get your tickets and support the film. go to www.hbff.org for more info.



PEACE, LOVE, and NAPPINESS
