  1. I, for one, wouldn't mind seeing Make 'em Bleed either ........... or the third - and I think TJ came up with this title on set: Kill 'em All, Malone. A little bone to Metallica there. I have not heard from Hannibal either on the sequel, but I refuse to give up hope. Maybe one of these days we can at least pry the comic rights away from them and rope Bradstreet into doing some art? ; )


  2. Whoa! What can I say? Terrific review! You really nailed these characters. Thank you for such thoughtful feedback.

     

     

    I see that you got the point on greed, eh? Yes, the idea was to grab Andy Griffith and throw him into the big bad pit of Wall Street. Paul isn't Andy Griffith--he's more savy, but you get the point. He loses a bit of himself along way, smartens up, toughens up-but, after being "corrupted" still sacrifices himself for the greater good. Why? Cause he still believes that its the right thing to do. Your point on Ellie is a good one. Yeah, I struggled that, she could've gone one or two different ways.

     

     

    Very good show here--it was great fun to read what you took got out of these characters after living with them for . . . 2 or 3 years and not sharing them with anyone else. It's a weird ride to be on but readers like you, who really take it in and enjoy it, make it all worthwhile.

  3. Hey! I'm glad to be your first e-book! It took me a while to get used to the change, and I still love books, but I do use an e-reader now, mostly for convenience. All those books on one little device! And I can look up words I don't know really easily.

     

    I'll let you know if / when the paper version comes. I'm trying to get the publisher and Goodreads.com to do a giveaway for paper advance reader copies, but we'll see if that works........! I'm experiencing Goodreads problems....

  4. Thanks! Yes, it's been too long. Things are nuts -- I'm drowning in books and children. So glad to hear you enjoyed the preview! It'll come out in print if we sell enough e-books -- only Simon & Schuster know how many is enough, so.......... It probably won't be in print in the near, near future. If you want to read it, though, amazon has a free app -- a kindle app -- that you can use to read on your computer or smart phone:

    Sorry, I know, what a pain -- but I'd love for you to check it out and tell me what you think!! It's on sale for $1.99 for another week -- you guys be sure to grab it before they gouge ya ; )


  5. Ladies and Gentlemen, it's true. I'm back to haunt the rawboards -- in book form!! John, thanks so much for posting. Everyone else, thanks so much for checking out Malone in the past and I hope you pick up IDENTITY too. It's a fun ride. It's not set in the noir world--it's in the business world--kind of a Wall Street meets NXNW. Which, trust me, it has its fair share of creepy bad guys.

     

    It's also super cheap until Aug 21st -- If you're on something other than a kindle, you can grab it on a Nook or iPad by going here:

    How's everybody doing?! I miss you guys. I wish we had Malone 2 up and hopping to share new pics of -- One Day! I hope everyone is doing well out there! Oh, and Good Lord -- Dirty Laundry rocked my lame ass! Wow. That was tremendous. Here's to hoping we get more of that, eh? If you pick it up, let me know what you think of my book!!!


  6. I finally saw this!!!

     

    I cringed a bit at first and at parts, then sat in suspense, then I was ultimately, and surprised to be, quite moved.

     

    Well done Mark :)

     

     

    Thank you very much -- I'm glad you enjoyed -- and moved. Though I can't take much credit for that, it's TJ's acting.


  7. Hey, thanks for not putting any pressure on me, Mark ;)

     

    Been a while. I suppose Nyda is running around and starting to talk. Just wait until she starts climbing. Just when you thought everything was safe... they find a new way to drive you nuts ;)

     

    Yes, Nyda is running me over as well as running my life. And you're right -- nothing is safe.

     

    Pressure makes diamonds.


  8. I saw this too -- I have no idea what it means for a potential Malone sequel -- if I get a scoop I'll be sure to post it -- but at this point, I'm prepared to write a "Make 'em Bleed, Malonesy" sequel on my own ... Think that's far enough away from "Make 'em Bleed, Malone?"


  9. Sorry for the late response, been out of town --

     

    IndieChick -- Everyone creative who works on a film LOVES to hear from those who enjoyed their work -- whether they admit it or not. That's why we do it. For people to watch and talk about. I've taken my fair share of shots too, and if you don't take the time to appreciate the people who dig your work there's no point in doing it.

     

    Doug Hutchison actually teaches an acting class in LA -- I don't know if you're local or not, but if you are, check it out here:

     

     

    www.darkwaterinc.com

     

    Then go to: "The Art of Stillness." The next time I correspond with him I will ask for the best way to get in touch with him, but I would definitely pop off emails to his websites -- www.darkwaterinc.com or www.doughutchison.com -- they'll know better than me, and yes, you never know who's checking the emails -- But -- if you can get out to LA you can learn from him directly which would be very cool.

     

     

    Hey Esco -- Good to hear from you. In a preproduction meeting that was actually one of our questions: "Do we have enough money for Malone to throw someone through a window?" so there you go. Yeah, Russell directed, and yes, 95% was on location -- the only green screen / composite was the interior driving stuff / Carnival Penis Chomp and ... I think that's it.

     

     

     

    John -- Shawshank their butts.

     

     

     

    All I can say is the sequel is killer. If Hannibal doesn't pull the trigger I'm going to write it and call it MAKE 'EM BLEED, MALONESY.

     

     

     

    But we'll see -- the film's just now opening in the UK and Aust and such, so we'll see where their heads are soon.

     

     

    BTW: Interview with Russell here:

  10. Hey great to read your thoughts Indieflick! It's always great to hear back from people who really dug it. I'm glad you were able to find it (apparently, it's well-hidden) -- and Doug Hutchison's a great guy and actor -- if you haven't found it yet, his website is:

     

     

    http://www.doughutchison.com/

     

     

    There's a contact on it -- try it!

     

     

    Also, whoever liked the film, let's start a campaign emailing Hannibal Pictures to demand that sequel promised at the end of the movie -- !!!

    Sheesh -- Gotta pull teeth in this town.......
