I’ve previously mentioned on the blog that I’ve wanted to write a screenplay, and I’d rather it to not be based on one of my novels (see challenge 30 for that).
Currently, I have the makings of a script in my head for a historic epic related to the War of the Roses and Richard III, as it’s a story that has, of yet, yet to be done well on the big screen (far too much Shakespeare focus). Having someone like Ridley Scott directing it, and Hans Zimmer composing the soundtrack would definitely give it the edge to become award-winning.
Firstly though I need to write it and get the script optioned! Maybe that’s the more realistic goal within 62 months, and perhaps it will be made and win awards in the future beyond that.
