Re: Yes, that movie looks neato!
I have a very strong suspicion that it isn't real.

But if it is... I'm gonna be camping out for tickets.

Blocked the reply cause it had RL info that I don't know if it's OK to share.
Quoting the message itself:

Subject: Yes, that movie looks neato!
Hehe, I too heard about this movie just recently. Did you hear about all the folks who are already fans of the movie? Apparently there is a big cult following for SoaP... Strange eh? Well, hope things are well with you. I've been enjoying reading your blog lately. Hope to see you soon (if we finally make it down to Oregon to visit). Last time we planned to come down Lorelai ended up getting too sick.

Take care.

It's the concept. Snakes. On a plane.

It is a real movie. And the internet ado caused them to go back and reshoot to add a bit that was in many fan-made trailers, too. :)

It started as a joke, not a real movie.

It did start as a real movie, they even tried to change the title for a while until the fans starting getting into it. Just the same is so cool. Even as a bonus one of the fan made audio trailer made a catch phrase for the film ("That's it! I'm tried of these Mother****ing snakes on this Mother****ing plane!"). It's a line that was acutaly put in the movie in the recent reshoots to make in an R-rated film.

This is such a B-movie, I thought so since I first heard about it in '04. Just the name.

Why do I recall seeing the 'How we came up with this lame joke name for a movie that they tried to turn into a real film' writeup from some Hollywood agent type, then?

Never heard about that. Nothing says I have to be right. :)

Nor I. More research is called for, when I'm not trying to get going to work.

I just tried to open this - I'm at work - and the Websense monitor came up and it said
THE CATEGORY "PERSONALS AND DATING" IS NOT ALLOWED

"Snakes on a Plane" - the new date movie?

KerSNORT.

I have no idea why they hosted that thing on TagWorld. It really is (partly) a personals and dating site. It's also an advertising and trailers site, so apparently WebSense doesn't know about multi-category websites.
