Elba Kroop : The Writer's Block

I'm a 33 year old screenwriter who knows where the door is but just can't seem to get inside it.

I love movies, film, flicks and theater. This is everything I love about them. And yes, some TV stuff will pop up here once in a great while.

With all of the Indiana Jones reboot rumors swirling around the interwebs today, I wanted to take a moment and share my thoughts and ideas. 

I liked Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Because it was Indiana Jones. But it wasn’t the Indiana Jones I grew up on. Something was missing. Leaving the theatre I decided I wanted to try my hand at writing something big. Something huge. So I chose one of my favorite heroes in film history. 

Indiana Jones. http://www.scribd.com/doc/123711621/Indiana-Jones

This is my love letter to the Indy movies we grew up on. This is my homage to a time when heroes were heroes. This is MY Indiana Jones. 

Please, I encourage you to take a look and let me know what you think. I’m very proud of this movie.

The Hardest Movie I’ll Ever Have To Write

I don’t know if I can actually do it. I’m scared to death of it. The response to it. Reactions that I’ll get for writing it. And I’m scared to death. I will procrastinate until the bitter end. 

How Indiana Jones could start over

There is a way to start popular movie series over again without punishing viewers or ostracizing them. There are ways. Great story. Perfect casting. The best possible directing. But it all starts with the script. The script is where the idea forms. The blueprint for a great movie. 

Here is the way to re-start Indiana Jones. Click the link and read the only way to restart the Indiana Jones property.
