Your work is really getting noticed this year, Irin! Soon we'll all be saying we knew you when... ;-)

Dude, you rock!

Congrats, man! Burning up the contests this season! WTG!!

Author: Tom Bragg Posted: 08/24/09 09:24 PM

By the Way, Irin. I like your title of your Christmas script Miss Christmas. Clever, double meaning.

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 08/24/09 10:21 PM

Thanks Tom, but I can't take credit - my collaborator (John Barlowe) came to me with the story idea and the title. I hate that John Barlowe! (But seriously, I'm very excited about "MIss Christmas").

Author: Terry Frazier Posted: 08/24/09 11:12 PM

Tell us more about MISS CHRISTMAS.

Author: Michael Murphy Posted: 08/24/09 11:40 PM

Irin, congrats again. You're hard to keep up with!

"Miss Christmas" - family Christmas comedy

To reunite her divorced parents, a young girl who has missed Christmas for the third straight year, enlists the help of her goofy uncle to persuade Santa's people to recreate Christmas for her in the summer.

(I know that's a bit wordy now that we added in the "goofy uncle," but we wanted to show the part of the co-lead because people are looking for family films where they can star Ben Stiller, Jack Black, Will Ferrell, etc. and not just unknown kids).

I'm doing one more rewrite on notes from Bill Pace - this will take another week or so. Then my agent will send it out after Labor Day. I'm very hopeful because I think it's a fun, marketable script. Though I've been wrong before!

Alright, Irin! Way to be hot!

Author: Irin Evers Posted: 08/25/09 01:21 PM

Look who's talking - Anita and Michael. You guys are all over the place!
