I was going to post this a little while ago. I just think it might be interesting to at least try once. Everyone I pitch the idea to says no way... it will most certianly bomb.
I don't know, perhaps. It was just an idea I had. I think it would be interesting to make a movie and leave the ending up in the air. Then people can go on a website and submit how they think the movie should end.
Then they can view ALL the other suggestions and everyone can vote on each others ideas.
The cream of the crop will rise to the top. Then make the ending and have a half hour showing in the theater. You keep your ticket stub and you come back to watch the ending. Also... you can get into any other movie in the theater for free.... since you are already there for the half hour ending. Or something like that.
Maybe even make it so that people can submit short indie films for the ending and then maybe the winner of that can be in a sequel! Perhaps? I don't know, but I think there are a lot of possibilities with it. I think it might be pretty neat to be able to interact in some way with the actual making of the movie! It would be fun. But just not on EVERY movie. I mean there's some times where you just want to sit and watch something.
But hey, if it flops it flops. It can't POSSIBLY be any worse than the Garbage Pail Kids Movie... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Garbage_Pail_Kids_Movie
Wait... how on earth did I miss that! Until 2 minutes ago I never even KNEW they made a garbage pail kids movie! I wonder if I can rent that. I kind of want to watch it... Being that my entire dresser growing up was covered in garbage pail kids stickers. But I'm sure I wasn't the only one who had those stickers. Looking back they are kinda strange. What an odd idea.
