At the time of making this, we are knee deep in the horrible Coronavirus pandemic. And because of it, I've been unable to film a single thing. I firmly believe in practicing social distancing, and the last thing I want is to selfishly summon all my actors and risk their health because I want to film. Thus, I've once again found myself thinking outside the box in an effort to indulge my creativity.
I don't exactly know what inspired me to make a radio play. All I know is that I just kinda wanted to do it. I've had friends and actors record lines remotely many times over the years. And unless I told you, you'd probably never know. So I used that same process and mindset to approach doing a radio play.
The first step was selecting a script that I knew I'd never get to film, especially at my current level. So I went through my DEAD SCRIPTS folder on my computer. It is pretty much comprised of scripts, stories and ideas that I either will never be able to make, outdated versions of scripts, or stories lost interest in doing.
After a short skim, I landed on Jack Slater V. I love Last Action Hero. It truly inspired me as a kid. I saw it in theaters, had the action figures, the car and the SNES game. I was a true fan. And around 2013 or so, I had the idea of continuing the unseen Jack Slater story. I really loved the idea of lampooning action films, ala the Simpsons' McBane, and I felt that Jack Slater is right in line with that over the top humor.
So I ended up writing a treatment for a full length Jack Slater movie. Of course, complete with insane action, endless ammunition, convenient ex machinas, and an over the top story that would make any action fan smile. But of course, it's impossible to make. The budget for a legit Jack Slater movie would be over 100m, and I don't even have the rights. So I rightfully tucked my Jack Slater idea into the DEAD SCRIPTS folder, but not before writing the cold open.
Flash forward to now, I pluck the cold open for JACK SLATER V, and retool it to be a little more descriptive for radio purposes, and here we are- audio recording of the first 10 minutes of my unwritten, unproduced Jack Slater sequel.
