Pitching Hollywood

The New York Times put together a pitch for a movie called “Red, White and Blood” and ran it by some Hollywood experts.  The entire thing is a damning indictment on the state of the movie business:

“I’ve got some really bad news for you,” said Lynda Obst, whose films include “Contact,” “Sleepless in Seattle” and Christopher Nolan’s coming “Interstellar.” “This is a reasonable pitch. The parody is the reality.”

Not one of them said the farcical idea was unworkable.  In fact, it sounds eerily similar to recent films like Olympus Has Fallen.
