executive producer from hell

Here's a fun thing, The Box Office Oracle (via metafilter).

My first project, an ill-advised period piece based on non-existant letters of regret written by Rimbaud from his deathbed, produced just so Keanu could play the lead like he has said he wanted, is projected to be a dismal failure.

I think I'd better fire Mamet...

The Spiritual Hunt (R) (Period Drama/True Story/Drama/Literary Adaptation) Starring Keanu Reeves and Christina Ricci Also Featuring Jason Lee, Tim Robbins, Marcia Gay Harden, and Meryl Streep Directed by David Mamet Screenplay by David Mamet

Projected Budget Range: $60-69 Million
Planned Release Date: April

Projected Box Office Receipts:
$9.51 million (Opening Weekend)
$42.99 million (Total Domestic Gross)

Chance of getting Oscar Nomination: 6%
Chance of winning at least one Oscar: 2%

Critic Most Likely to Praise: Jay Carr, Boston Globe
Critic Most Likely to Skewer: Rita Kempley, Washington Post

I swear I'm going to play around with this thing until I create a the perfect concept.

And then I'm calling Joel to rub it in his face.
