Hey folks, Harry here... about a billion years ago, which is Geek Time for a decade, Christopher "Robinson" Cargill has been writing on AICN as an entity the world has come to cower from called, Massawyrm. His original piece was a write up about Jon Favreau's MADE event that I threw - and that he covered 10 years ago yesterday.
10 years ago I couldn't conceive of this Dr Pepper swilling, chain smoking video store clerk not only continuing to write for me... but living... dear God... 3 blocks from me. I had to hit him with a... "Please Call before coming over" warning yesterday - but it's easy to see why he was so damned excited about coming over. You see... not only was it the 10th Anniversary of me asking him to write for AICN, but he was also given permission to declare himself an employed screenwriter with a project sold and in a production pipeline.
Massawyrm has written with Scott Derrickson (a man who made the pretty damn cool THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE and the damnable remake of DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL) an Untitled film that originated in his own Nicotine deprived mind. (He stopped smoking years ago) I didn't pry for details - because I would rather be surprised by whatever slinked from that noodle of his. In this article from the L.A. Times - it mentions an untitled Scott Derrickson horror story with a crime at its center that is being produced by Jason Blum, the producer of PARANORMAL ACTIVITY.
Scott & Massa have apparently taken a shine to one another and are planning to write together in the future - and I have this to say to all of you.
Massawyrm will continue to be here on AICN so long as he always represents his own particular brand of film commenting lunacy. So Happy 10th & Congrats my friend. Don't suck it up too bad! :)
