This epic delusion on my part has faded considerably. I just don’t see anyone doing anyone with this great story set in Seoul, South Korea like I used to. But I was going for my morning walk this morning and I realized I felt like mentally masterbating about it again.
There are some basic reasons why Jennifer Lawrence would be perfect to play the woman at the center of the ROKon Magazine story, Annie Shapiro. I think she — of all people — would really get a kick out of sinking her acting chops into such a meaty role. I have also idly mentioned Shailene Woodley as someone who could pull it off, but more people seem interested in the posts about this subject that mention Jennifer Lawrence, so there you go.
The late Annie Shapiro was such an exotic creature mentally that someone like Jennifer Lawrence would probably become just as fascinated with her as I am. I can see in my mind’s eye so clearly what a great movie the ROKOn Magazine story could be. If you are interested in seeing why, read this: Somehow.pdf and this: TheBattleofTheOldFreeStatev1.5.
If you read those two documents, I think you’ll get some sense of why Jennifer Lawrence might have more than just a passing interest in what happened about a decade ago. It really was very, very, very cinematic in some respects and it would make for a great movie. Of course, this begs the question — why don’t _I_ write the screenplay and go through the process of trying to get it produced.
That is a very good question. I guess I’m finally tired of the story of the magazine and those times I have tried to write a screenplay about what happened it wasn’t very successful. The whole thing was probably a little too personal, anyway. You can get some sense of things if you read what I’ve already written, but…I am kind of tired of it all. I’d rather write a scif novel about something completely different than ROKon Magazine at this point.
