He LIked the Book --- I Guess


Hancock PosterLast month I wrote how months earlier I received a call from an assistant at Overbrook Entertainment, Will Smith's production company. Evidently, Mr. Smith had gotten a hold of my book "The Moral Premise" and wanted to talk to me. At the time I didn't know if he liked it or not. I promised to tell you if he did ... or not ... provided I found out.

Well, I still haven't talked to him... but my guess is he liked it. A couple of weeks ago Fed Ex showed up at my door here in Michigan with a couple of scripts and a non-disclosure agreement. My wife persuaded me to sign the thing and get to work. Then, after I handed in my analysis, I was invited to make a couple of trips. I guess someone at Overbrook likes the book.

So, I'll be in L.A. next week on moral premise business, and hope to have some time between screenings or afterward to visit with those of you I haven't seen in a couple of years. If you've got some time, drop me an email.

And, no, I haven't written up HANCOCK on this moral premise blog, but I loved the movie. The Moral Premise? Something like Super Indulgence produces a Super Binge, but Super Sacrifice produces a Super Hero...whether fighting crime or raising a family. Moms are super, aren't they?

Congratulations Dr. Williams

I think I am Legend would be a much better movie if Will Smith had already asked for your advice. And if I had read this earlier, I wouldn't have given Hancock a pass.

Keep us informed.
